21 Thoughts on Rome

After spending a night in Venice and spending a lot of time on the train, we made it to the Eternal City. We are spending the most time in Rome than any other city on this trip, with 10 days here.

Rome invokes strong emotions in people. Anyone I know who has visited the city says it is one of their favourite places on the planet, and I have a few thoughts (and questions) on this place.

Trip Update!

Hello friends and family! We’d like to give you an update on our trip. When we left Toronto on September 28, we had everything planned up to December 22 where we would be in Florence, Italy. We weren’t sure how the trip would go, i.e., if we were so bored of each other and/or so close to killing each other that we would have to return home for Christmas!

However, after a lot of thought (and a quick peek at the budget…), we’ve decided to extend the trip until the beginning of January. After Florence, we head to Lisbon, Portugal, where we will spend Christmas. Then it’s off to Valencia, Spain, so Geoff can go see a Real Madrid game and where we will spend New Year’s. Our final stop is Barcelona, where we will fly back to Toronto.

We know that we are going to get super homesick over the holidays and we are seriously missing you all, but we also know that we would regret not seeing a bit more of Europe while we are here. Also, it would have cost an arm and a leg to return to Canada before Christmas!

We look forward to see you all in 2016!
