I’m not the type of person that leans towards city holidays, but I would recommend EVERYONE visit Rome at least for a weekend… even if it’s just to experience St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.
I love traveling and documenting the adventure along the way and I love sharing the photographs with you! So if you’re in, get ready to buckle down on a 3 part blog series on my recent travel to Rome! There was just too much to share in one blog post!
Now… I have to share my experience of St. Peter’s Basilica. I don’t even want to say much about it because it’s one of those experiences that you can’t really put into words. Or pictures for that matter. I walked in and my mouth dropped (literally). My sister and I just stared at each other and gasped because we just couldn’t believe what we were seeing.
At the start, I was taking photos along with hundreds of other people there but I soon realised that what I was seeing in front of me was NOTHING compared to what I was seeing on the back of my camera. Friends, when this happens, you know you need to put that camera down!
The photos I did take I almost don’t want to share with you in fear of ruining your expectations. If you don’t want to see pictures then you can exit this blog post now. But if you’re curious, feel free to keep scrolling. These photos really are miniscule in comparison- you just have to go and experience the church for yourself.
My recommendation? Turn your phone off, put your camera away, quiet your voice and just let yourself be overwhelmed. It is spiritual and moving and personally, reminded me how small I am and how magnificent God is and yet how much he still cares for us.
… and just an iPhone panorama to give you an idea of St. Peter’s Square. Stay tuned for more from Rome!
