Rome Day 2

Photos to come - and really photos will be the best way to 'describe' these places. Today we got up and walked down to the little coffee shop half a kilometre from our house. Pastries for breakfast is also a bit of a theme on this trip... The coffee/lattes here…

Milan → Rome

Photos to come. Another early morning - seemingly a reoccurring theme on this trip. And sadly we sent Rosi home this morning. Planning wise it worked out perfectly - we all flew out of the same airport - her to Amsterdam then Iceland then home, and us to Rome. Unfortunately…

Milan Day 2

Lots of photos to come! It took us a long time to get up and moving this morning. We had to repack Rosi's suitcase as she's headed home tomorrow morning. But once we finally got out the door we were off! (Canadian cities could learn a thing or two about…

Berlin → Zadar

Another early morning - but not as early as the Icelandic ones, and much less stressful then the Amsterdam bus ticket one. Just a lot of stairs at 7am as we made our way to the connecting train. We also figured out how Ryan air manages to be so cheap.…

Berlin Day 2

Note: for the most part internet is really slow. (Or there is better stuff to do then sit around and upload photos 😜) So some posts might go up in a flood & all at once. Others might go up and have photos added to them slowly. Some might just…
