It is said that all roads lead to Rome. Well, if that is so then they also go the other way. I leave Rome today for home.  Even though I love to travel, it is always great to go home.  The following quote  speaks to that feeling.  " No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow."
- Lin Yutang
