We spent most of our time in Italy exploring Venice and Rome. We loved our experience but both of us agree that we have no desire to visit these two cities again, at least until we have a chance to visit the other dozens of places on our bucket list.
Unfortunately the worst weather was in Venice, it was freezing!!!!
We got lost 129898 times. I mean it’s an island but for some reason they don’t label their streets! We finally figured out where we were for 2 seconds, then would get lost again!
I have a confession, I hate pigeons. I don’t know why but they creep me out, well Matt on the other hand thinks they are just fine. He checked feeding them in Piazza San Marco off his bucket list.
We traveled to Rome on a high speed train, it was awesome, we watched Dodgeball. I wish we had anything similar to this type of transportation in the US.
We made it to Rome and forgot to take into consideration that it gets dark, quick, opps. We went out to our first dinner in Rome and of course had amazing Italian food.
We went to the Colosseum and I got stuck in the Subway doors 😦 The doors really don’t stop for people, I promise you that. I was trying to be nice and not push my way out of the doors but clearly that is not how it works in Rome, I got stuck in the doors! I seriously had a Hercules moment where I pushed both the doors open with my forearms and escaped the clutches of the Rome subway!
It hurt, I promise!
We threw our coins in the Trevi Foundation. It’s crazy; in Rome you are walking down a side street and then all of the sudden you are at the most gorgeous fountain.
We went to the worlds most mathematically designed, and the oldest Catholic church in Rome; the Pantheon.
Of course we went to the most lavish McDonald’s in the world. When in Rome!
I promise this is the short highlight reel of our trip! We had an amazing once in lifetime trip and can’t wait for the next one 🙂
