Trip to Rome -- Prologue

Last year my wife and I celebrated our tenth anniversary by going to Rome. All I can say is that it is a spectacular city. I have been to Mexico, Canada, and the Bahamas. My first sight of Europe was flying into Brussels. Once we made our descent I looked upon the Belgium countryside and homes leading into Brussels. On the flight from Brussels to Rome I was astonished at the Alps. First because of their spectacular beauty and second because I kept expecting at any moment for them to give way once again to the plains. But we flew for what seemed like several minutes over those mountains; quite a sight. Flying into Rome actually wasn’t as appealing as flying into Brussels, but that’s okay, because once you actually get into Rome, well, there’s no place like it.
