So, our journey began yesterday afternoon, with a 12:37pm train out of Speonk. As we made our way to JFK, I realized that traveling with just two was pretty easy. Most of our travels involve our kids, or more recently missions teams and in comparison, this trip was a piece of cake.
I should probably give a quick shout out to our new Costco luggage with spinner wheels. It was positively delightful to travel with. Whoever invented 360 degree spinner wheels for luggage, making it easy to roll the suitcases in all directions should get a gold star. We wheeled it from the train station, to the airbus, to the plane and the all over Rome and it was awesome.
We got into Rome at 3:30am our time, but 9:30am their time. We were pretty tired. Thankfully, when we got to our hotel room, it was available early so we were able to check in and rest for a bit. By the way, I’m a huge fan of our cute room. We booked it because it was a great location and a good price, but it way exceeded my expectations.
We walked around to check out some of the churches. They were breathtaking. It’s hard to even wrap my mind around the beautiful sculptures and paintings. This was the ceiling in a random church that we found.
And that wraps up our past 24 Hours. We are looking forward to a few more days in Rome, before we hop on a cruise ship for more European adventures. Thanks so much for stopping by to catch up with where we are at and what we are up to.
