To continue the story about the movies and their role to my life I must start with my very first trip to Rome and thank Tom Hanks in the Angels & Demons. I never thought I could actually make it but if you’re determined to do something the universe is in your side. So my relationship with EasyJet started like this: Oh my, only 192 euros for two return tickets to Rome…and so we went to our first European trip. We were on a budget but I came to realize that the most beautiful things in this world are free of charge (except maybe the air-tickets)
I give you a little bit of my Rome.

It all started in 2009. I went with my boyfriend to watch a movie, Angels & Demons staring Tom Hanks. It was an amazing movie, filmed in the Vatican. The Vatican…no words to describe it. At that point I fell in love with Rome. ”I want you to take me there“, I said to him.
Before the “Angels and Demons” there was another movie that year, “The Thomas Crown Affair“, staring Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo. What I remember is: she walks in the porch with just a scarf tied in her hips, she looks at the view, the view was just the blue sea. Nothing luxurius, just the sea. “I want to go there, I want to go to a place were anything I see is the light blue of the sea”, I said to my boyfriend.
Yet that year we really couldn’t afford any trip, that summer we ended up camping for a week, but in 2010 I took a deep breath and a huge step.
I’m pretty sure, now that I’m writing this, if everything goes well, from May it will take me a long time to plan another trip.
