Hey, I'm back! Yay! So, I was in Rome last week. Italy, that is. Not like, Rome, Illinois. It was kind of a Surprise!Trip for Fiance's work. It was the kind of Surprise!Trip I could get behind, to be honest.
I've been out of the country before, but primarily to tropical destinations. I did a European cruise once, and while it was super fun and the boat was amazing, I really didn't get to see as much of actual European soil as I would have liked. Therefore, this trip was incredible for me.
Thing #1 I learned: Italian (and perhaps all European) women clearly have this inbred skill for walking on cobblestone streets in high-heeled shoes. Like, stiletto heels. It was unfathomable to me. I tried to walk to dinner one night in heeled boots and I swear I hit every crack between the stones. Also, they do this thing where they smoke out of the side of their mouth so they don't muss their lipstick. Also-also, they were all extremely fashionable.
|Beautiful Roman days.|
|Look at these things. HOW ARE THEY EVEN REAL.|
|When they invent Time Travel Vacations, I'm going.|
|Hanging out in Piazza Navona eating breakfast, no big deal.|
