Locks of Love.

Left Top: The Roman Arena built in 30 AD that could house up to 30,000 people. Left Bottom: (L to R) Mary Kate, Jane, and I standing in front of the gorgeous scenery. Right Top: Near Juliet's balcony, where people will buy locks, write their names, and lock them to the gate on a wall. Right Middle: So much gum. Right Bottom: Looking back at the bridge.

We traveled an hour by train to visit a smaller place in Italy called Verona, which is commonly known for what is supposedly Juliet’s balcony, from the famous Shakespeare play. There was a wall filled with gum (two lovers chewed it and then stuck it on), and a wall with locks on it (lovers write their initials and lock it to the fence provided–much more sanitary). However, Verona is also a very beautiful place, which was what we mostly admired it for. At night, we jumped on a plane to Vienna to meet Jane’s and my flatmate, Alex (also known as Austria).
