My first foot on Europe was in the transfer from the flights Buenos Aires – Madrid – Rome. I was totally astonished. I only knew the Ezeiza International Airport (Buenos Aires) and the Lima International Airport (Peru). Barajas is actually a lot bigger, with a subway connecting its terminals. It’s definitely like a tiny city.
These are the videos of Buenos Aires Airport and Barajas Trip-Landing-Airport:
Though my first approaching was in Barajas, I really felt in Europe when I landed on Rome (Roma Fiumicino). I traveled on train directly to one of the biggest train stations in Italy: Roma Termini.
The streets of Rome were also the first approach to that photogenic characteristic of most European cities. The colours of almost every building in Rome are very similar: red, yellow, and orange. At the same time, the European cities share the same features: they all have the architectural styles of its regions, unlike the Central and South American cities, which have a mix of lots of styles.
