I believe that you know Rome already. You have been here at least for once, and when Ryanair offers round trip tickets for just 60 Euro again, you will come here at least for the weekend. But do you know where the secret places are? Where you can take iconic postcard-look-like pictures without disturbing heads of Chinese tourists?
It wasn’t one of those April 1st jokes when I got “roster changes” alert in the evening before my departure. Rome is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to! I did not want to believe my luck for long time, so I started packing my suitcase just after midnight, when April 1st was actually over. I slept only two hours, but Rome stayed in my roster! I have to admit that I had meditated the day before, and I was visualizing the flight to Europe. And it really works! Thoughts are like magnet..
When we arrive to Rome in the afternoon, the cozy bed at the Sheraton Golf Resort is teasing me to sleep in. Fortunately, I resist and join my colleagues for a trip to the city. The fact that we get to the city almost as full team, is quite telling about the popularity of this destination. Usually, most of the flight attendants stay all layover in the hotel room, with dark curtains closed. When you are in a city for a hundred times, after many nights spent working on the board, crossing several time zones there and back and for thousands of times you have to be kind to people, you don’t really like, no wonder you want just sleep. But even though none of us is in Rome for the first time, we are all looking forward to going out!
