11 Comments 438 views
Welcome to Rome!

Mom and I are having a BLAST in Italy! I’m in information overload visually and mentally. Our tour guides couldn’t be nicer. The group we are with is amazing. I can’t even comprehend that we still get to see Venice and Florence this week!

Of course I’ve been snapping photos like a mad women. Archiving our trip the best I can. These are just a few shots to tell our story of the last 2 days.

My first ever international plane ticket!

    How fun and you guys are really packing it in (you gotta when you don't know if you will ever be back, right)? You hoots brought me back to when my step sister and and her friend and I went backpacking around Europe in 1990. It was a whole different world then. I remember how each country we were in did a different number of kisses as greetings. Funny. I'm so jealous that you got to actually go inside the coliseum . We just saw it from outside the fence,,, and how great tat you're running on your trip too. Get a few zzzzzs and continue to have a great time!!! Reply
