Our plane left an hour late due to air traffic congestion, then we were only in the air about 30 minutes when a passenger had a medical emergency and we had to turn around and land in Boston! The passenger was fine, I'm not sure what the issue was...but they safely got him off the plane and then we had to wait another HOUR for the plane's engine to cool down before taking off again. Oy! It didn't bother me too much though, I was too excited and exhausted - having only gotten 3 hours of sleep the night before.

We arrived at our hotel (Hotel 21) after 12 hour plane ride tired, but anxious to explore.

We saw the trevi fountain:
We ate more pizza...
We saw the Vatican, the POPE (from afar) and climbed the vatican!
I wore a fanny pack...and Chris was NOT very proud. Haha

And of course, we ate LOTS of gelato:
Rome was amazing and exhausting...we had three very packed days there, but I was super excited for our next stop: Florence!!
