    Sidetracked in Termini Station

    Day 2 in Rome we were planning on getting all religious and go visit the Pope in Vatican City, but that got thrown out the window when we arrived at Termini Station to take the Metro, it was closed for the day for fixing. Not wanting to fight the other tourist on the busses i called an audible and decided to get all religious on some Pizza from Naples.

Its been a long wait and of course these past couple days at work have been pretty hectic with Jonathan also out on vacation. I’m kind of feeling anxious now that i see how the weather is going to be like for both legs of our trips. I knew that Paris had a good chance that it would be wet, while Italy was suppose to be super warm.
