Walk to Rome

When speaking of Rome, what can you think of?

Is it the historical ancient city? The Colosseum animal fights? Or is it the capital of art?

Decades ago, the film Roman Holiday rose to fame overnight. The pure romantic love between the graceful Audrey Hepburn and handsome Gregory Peck in the film merged into the scene of the Roman streets. The film has moved the audience of the past over 50 years since it hit the theater. Although it is only a black-and-white film, it shows the vividness and warm colors of Rome.

The film has moved the audience of the past over 50 years since it hit the theater. Although it is only a black-and-white film, it shows the vividness and warm colors of Rome.

Therefore, the rating of the film is extremely high: without Rome, without paradise.

Walk to Rome

I rarely visit Europe and I lack knowledge about the architecture. But since I have a strong passion for the film, I decided to visit Italy’s capital, Rome, as my first stop on my travels in Europe.

Freeing myself from work, I decided to take a holiday and travel to Rome. Dressed in a simple orange skirt and warm colors, I forced myself, to enter the cold-colored but classic buildings of Rome. I freely walked down the streets and into alleys, as if I myself was already in the film, playing an easy-to-be-forgotten role, which I made all my efforts to play.

I created a subtitle for myself: Setting off from Beijing, I have a little orange skirt, and I want to walk to Rome.

Walk to Rome

That’s right, walk to Rome in order to see the Colosseum, relics of the ancient city, Arch of Constantine, Pantheon, and Pompeii. As far as I know, the total area of Rome is 1,300 square kilometers, with the urban area being more than 200 square kilometers. Thus, there are numerous streets and alleys for you to visit, numerous statues for you to admire, and numerous artistic treasures for you to discover.

Walk to Rome

Yes, walk to Rome. I don’t have much, but I dream big.

Standing at the ancient Roman square, I looked around, feeling its overwhelming power that just swarmed into my eyes, and imagining the golden time of the Roman Empire. I strolled among the eternal relics, and my mind swam in the prosperous reality and ancient myths of Rome. What a large sacred city! So I thought to myself: even if I could reach each of your corners, I don’t think I can taste the amassed charms of yours completely.

Walk to Rome

I have asked myself one question numerous times: how do I want to live my life? I only have a small luggage bag, in which so many things that I want cannot be fit into it. That’s the source of my worry.

Therefore, I stubbornly bring all the things I strongly love with me, but I want to make myself look relaxed when I am determined to move forward with those who share the same destination with me but drive sports cars. I have passed through many stops, and finally I begin to throw away what I really love bit by bit, including those that are not really meaningful, those that look shining but are not really good, and those that I love from the bottom of my heart but are not suitable for me. Then, my life becomes simple, and I have a new simple life again.

Walk to Rome

I begin to know that when I only have 30 Euros, I will only buy a simple skirt, and make friends with those who are the same as me; and when I have earned 50 Euros, I will only buy two skirts, and make more friends. My dream should match my personal ability, so that I can spare more space in my mind to accept things which are not material, such as love. I can freely hang around in the city of Rome, I can feel that I am being noticed, and I can also notice others at the same time. This feeling is really good.

Therefore, I am searching for you, the times that I didn’t really take careful of when I had so much burden on my back, along the road from which I have come to today, can you see the warm-colored skirt I wear now?
