Top 10 places to visit in Rome

Rome is such a beautiful city, there is so much to see and to do. I’ve been quite a few times in Rome and I still haven’t seen all of the landmarks. If you’re visiting Rome, prepare yourself for a lot of walking! There are hop on, hop off busses, but walking through the little streets will make you fall in love with this city!

Every time I go to Rome, I’m there for just a day or two. Below you find my top 10 of favourite places in Rome (that you can see all in one day)!

My own experience #01: The selections

Many pilots knew from a very young age that they wanted to become a pilot when they grew up. For me, it was a little bit different. I always admired pilots, I looked up at the sky when a plane passed and one of my earliest memories is waving my grandparents goodbye at Schiphol’s panorama terrace as they were leaving in a plane to Jordan. I loved seeing the big airplanes preparing for departure and watching them take off. I must have been 3 or 4 years at that time. From that moment onwards, I was always excited to go to the airport or just pass by and see the planes taxiing, being curious how it was possible that such big and heavy airplanes could fly. Once or twice I asked my parents if it was possible to become a pilot. Even though my parents always supported me in all possible ways, they also raised me with a positive but rational mindset. They told me that it was very difficult and expensive to become a pilot. They told me about the pilots aptitude tests to be accepted to flight school, medical checks and education. Based on this, I assumed it was very difficult and for that moment I did not continue to do any research. Press on the READ MORE button to read how I went from high school to flight school!

VLOG #53: In the cockpit to Amsterdam!

 

My three day trip to Amsterdam started with an awesome flight on the jumpseat in the cockpit of an Airbus A320! It was really nice to see the pilots doing their job, it’s quite different from the plane that I fly!

Together with Diego I spent three amazing days in Amsterdam, meeting up with friends and family and riding a bike through the beautiful city centre!

Puglia

Lately I visited Puglia in Southern Italy. It’s the province of the heel of the boot – if you know what I mean! As Diego works in Brindisi, we made daytrips from there. Everything is very close by, from Brindisi we didn’t spend more than 1,5 hour driving to all the locations. I loved the cristal blue water, the iconic olive tree fields and the nature all around! Find below the places we visited in 4 days!
