rome, italy {part three}

I can’t believe it has been a month since we moved back to the States! It’s great to be back since everything is a bit easier here and I’m not 6 hours ahead of my family {sorry for waking you up all of those times, parents!}, but I think B and I both agree that we miss Scotland. Whether we were taking a road trip, or just running errands on a Sunday afternoon, driving around the Highlands was always such a pleasure. I miss running into hidden castles, looking around to see sheep and Highland cows scattering the fields, and most of all, I miss being able to access Mainland Europe easily. Have I mentioned that travel is cheap? B and I love exploring, but plane tickets out of the USA are so darn expensive! I suppose I should stop pinning travel destinations and focus on all of the countries […]

rome, italy {part two}

Hey, friends. I know I keep bringing this up, buuuuuut… we’re leaving the UK tomorrow. And I’m sort of freaking out. We’ve been packing our suitcases for the past week or so {attempting to pack is probably a more accurate description} and we have clothes everywhere. I have a ton of clothes, but nothing to wear every day. Odd, isn’t it? So while I’m frantically trying to pack up our little life in Scotland and scrounge around the house for Monopoly money we still need to use before tomorrow, here’s the second part of our trip to Rome. I had obviously seen a million photos of the Colosseum before planning our trip, so I knew that it was massive, but I wasn’t expecting to hop off the metro and… BAM!!… For it to pop out of nowhere, looming over us. It’s truly a magnificent structure! We set aside an entire afternoon to […]

rome, italy {part one}

For the past week, I’ve been trying to post photos from our vacation but NOTHING has been working. Our new MacBook Pro has been freezing up and I’m regretting spending so much money on it {if I see the beach ball spinning one more time, I might throw it out the window}, iPhoto decided to turn over half of our photos black {has this happened to anyone else? Please tell me you know how to fix it!} and Photobucket… don’t get me started. Since everything is breaking, I spent hours saving our photos to different folders and putting them all on an external hard drive. Hopefully this holds up until we get home and have Apple look at the laptop from hell. Now for the trip post… Since our Mediterranean cruise was scheduled to leave from a city just North of Rome, we decided to fly down early and explore the […]
