Rome, we meet again...
Okay, so maybe this may sound a little weird to some of you but I'm going to say it anyways- finishing up these posts about our trip is making me a little emotional. No, not like crying emotional. More like, "that was the most amazing week of my life how was it already two months ago...why is it over?!" If you've been to Europe I know you understand what I'm saying, or at least trying to say. (Good thing I took over 500 pictures while we were there...)
On our last few days in Rome we drank an abundance of espresso (what jet lag??), ate gelato with just about every meal and finished up our sight seeing. We did the Pantheon, the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, and let me just say, they are even more incredible in person. I'm talking mind blowing architecture, with so much history I couldn't believe we were actually there. Hands down the Colosseum was both Hunter and I's favorite, we spent a few hours at each and by the end of the day we were dead tired.
After dinner we got news that the new Pope was elected!! Hunter and I got on the metro and headed straight the St. Peter's Square. Sure enough- white smoke, parades and mobs of people everywhere! Such an incredible part of history and to be honest, I can't believe we were there to see it all happen.
Side note: I was body slammed by two Nuns on the metro. Hunt thought I was kidding until we got back to our hotel and I showed him the bruises... oh the memories.

Walking through the Roman Forum, how cute is he??

Rome, you were good to us.
