After packing up and leaving San Gemini, I was sad.  There were people who I had become to call friends and yet, I still had to say goodbye to much too soon.  Many things happened that day to align our stars so correctly, that fate had definitely intervened the next day.  Subal and Minnie’s flight was delayed.  We only were able to go to the Vatican before it closed and everyone was so exhausted from traveling that when we got back to our hostel, we just wanted to eat somewhere nearby.  We were walking back from the restaurant, turning on to the corner of our hostel, when I heard someone shout, “Nikki!”  I turned around to find Cassie and Susan standing there. It turns out that their hostel was only about 6 doors down from ours and on the same street!  We agreed to meet up the next day.  So, 10 am, we met the girls and our adventures began.  We walked all of Rome until 2 am.  It was AMAZING!  Seeing everything together, buying bottles of wine and in the end drinking them at the Trevi Fountain at night. I can truly say that this day will forever be in heart as one of the greatest.  It was FATUM and it really was never goodbye.  I will miss those girls.  Spring Break 2012!!!!


PS- Minnie and I had started the idea of jumping in front of famous places (hence our Vatican profile pic), well, let’s just say that all of us girls jumped our way through major monuments of Rome.  See the pics here!
