Sometimes “meh” is the best I can come up with

I’m in Rome, the first stop of my Italian vacation and home of amazing art and history. And by amazing I mean more along the lines of “meh”. I’m finding the crowds hard to handle. At the Vatican museums all I could think was get me the hell outta here, and my response to the Sistine Chapel was that I didn’t see what all the fuss is about.

But at least I’m getting out and doing stuff, even though my passion for culture and history seems to have died out. Morning is my active time, and then I don’t do much in the afternoon and go to bed early.

Things are well signed, so getting around hasn’t been too hard. I feel like I’m getting negative vibes from a lot of people, but that’s probably more my depression talking than reality. Still, it makes sitting in restaurants/cafes a bit uncomfortable. They do have good coffee here, though.

    I hate to hear that. I know those uncomfortable vibes and regardless if it is me, it is uncomfortable. Perhaps the second half of your trip will be better. Think of me while you are there!! Maybe video something for me? You could be my your guide!! Maybe that will help. Be safe.

    I’ll never forget when I went to the Grand Canyon in Arizona, looked down and thought “Wow, that’s a big hole. Is it lunchtime yet?” Enjoy your vacation to the best of your abilities. There are no rules, it’s your vacation.

    I’m sad to hear that. Hopefully, in a couple days you feel a bit better. Sending you all my love and hope ❤️🙏 I went to Rome with my choir when I was 16 and I loved it. It’s a beautiful city. I also don’t like crowds so I understand you.

    Hopefully you’ll settle into tolerating the crowds and glossing over negative vibes. Sometimes if we build things up in our minds to be incredible the reality can fall short. Whatever you experience, see, adore or dislike you are entitled to your own opinion and feelings, if they’re clouded by depression then so be it. You are doing something amazing just by being there.
