Rome three years ago.

It's going to be three years of my trip to Rome. The relationship with this city and me has a little bit of "history", because it was the third time I tried to go there when I actually could visit it. The first attempt was a family trip, but I was the only one who couldn't because of final exams, it was in 2005.

In February 2008, I planned a trip to Rome with a friend of college. We arrived there, stayed a whole day but I had to go back home because of an anxiety attack. It was my first one and I got really scared, I didn't know what was going on with me, so I took the first plane home.

After that incident I did some therapy and I learnt how to control them. Unfortunately, life's hard sometimes, so it's something I'll have to handle (maybe forever) because it's the way I am, and I can't change that. Luckily for me, I'm getting more experience with that problem, and I control it better (always trying to find the positive side of things!).

Back in the story, in August 2008 I finally could visit this beautiful city and I have so good memories of it. 

These are ones of my favourites shots of the trip.

Rome looks like such an amazing city! I'm glad you finally got to visit it and got control of your anxiety. As they say, third times a charm!
