Yea, it has been a while since we've been back...and it's taken a while to update my blog with the photos we took!
What to say, well, honestly, Rome is WOW. Beautiful. I love that city. The weather (as you'll see!) was hot hot hot (but what we found very odd...was that the Italian nationals still wore jeans, boots, coats, scarves...and it was 25 degrees C people!!) I actually got burnt.
Everyone is lovely and speaks English, so we were able to get by fine. I just can't begin to explain how much fun we had, and the amazing sights we saw. So here are a few photos (out of 400 odd) to try and give you an idea =]
The Swiss Alps!
In the Villa Borgeuse region looking out over the city.
