this is rome. we did not expect to stay in rome during our honeymoon for more than a day while passing through to our final destination, but bad weather and a split-second decision to take advantage of our train pass landed us back in rome after the first week of our trip.
rome is phenomenal. it is rich with culture and over-flowing with yummy carbs. since we hadn't done research on rome before traveling there, we felt ill-prepared. with nothing but a hotel map in one hand and a camera in the other, we stumbled into the colosseum, discovered some delightful croissants and met some pretty friendly locals. we also made sure to visit all the big tourist-y places too because, well, we just wanted to see what all the commotion was about. it turns out places like the vatican are actually as cool as they look and definitely worth a three hour wait in line.
as far as going back, well let's just say we are most certainly working on it.
