Roma

ROME, ITALY

03.05.2018 – 06.05.2018

Rachel’s youngest brother, David, came to visit us (woo!) and per his request, we spent a weekend in Rome. Not surprisingly, it was filled with gelato, pizza, pasta, and lots of walking. Due to the rainy weather, we channeled ancient Roman tactics and perfected the umbrella phalanx to protect ourselves.


The Stats: 
52, 920 Steps
4 Trains
2 Trams
2 Taxis
