After finishing my second block in London, it was finally time for the long-awaited trip to Rome! Our tickets for Rome were booked not long after we returned from Paris, so it was on our minds for a while, and finally we were through with final papers and were ready to go. Here is a recap of my second block break in Italy from March 31 to April 4.

After finishing my two classes for the day an hour early, Erin and I left the Global Institute to walk less than three minutes to Russell Square station. From there, we hopped on the Piccadilly line, which brought us to Heathrow Terminal 4. Fun fact: Erin did trip and flail around as we were getting off at our stop, and I told her that I would mention it in this article. After going through security and getting onto the plane for our flight — we had to wait an hour before actually taking off — we finally took off for Rome for the next two and a half hours. Despite being exhausted, we were hardly able to sleep due to the group of students that we ended up next to who were standing by each other’s seats as though they were hanging out in a pub.
