Today we left Greece and travelled from Rafina (Athens) to Rome. Leaving the hotel early, we caught the local bus to the airport. Despite being concerned about the weight of our suitcases, we were both underweight. Andrew had to buy a new suitcase as the one we bought in Lima collapsed from the inside out. The frame broke and we didn't think we could trust it to stay in one piece much longer. We bought the new case from a shop in Tinos but already one of the wheels ...

High! From Amsterdam

... sort of a sick labyrinth filled with wooden clogs and tulips. Let me tell you, you cannot be on 'island time' and expect to not get run over. We stocked up on keychains and cheese graters (Got ya covered, Lisa!) and leisurely made our way to the gate. Naturally, the boarding sign said "GATE CLOSING" and we just made the cut! Third last to board. How badass are we? Catching the train from the airport was quite the ordeal. Just getting tickets was a bit of ...

He left back to his hometown and confided in another painter explaining his troubles. This ...

... a candle-lighting venue. By then it was about 4:30 and we noticed a group of people gathering in a side chapel, dressed in formal wear, so we asked, and learned there was a mass scheduled for 5 PM. Even though we'd had a long day we couldn't pass up the chance to attend a mass there. So we found seats and even though we didn't understand a word of Italian, we appreciated the gift of being there at the moment. Turned out the folks ...

Rome

A travel blog entry by rheemiix on Jun 25, 2013

Today is the last day of my tour. The majority of the group are going to the Vatican and the colosseum & touring Rome but Sam and I decide not to go and hang by the pool instead. But first, we both need to check out. So we're up at 9 getting our things together. We checkout and head to the pool. The sun is hot and the water is cold! I am too hot to just sit in the sun so I jump in. I last all of 5 minutes then I'm on the sun bed tanning for the majority ...
