Merry Christmas from Rome!
Ashley and I spent Christmas Day travelling to the Vatican City, and unfortunately missing out on hearing the Pope’s speech.
It was a little difficult for me to be without my family on Christmas, but travelling around Europe does have it’s benefits! Apart from waking up very early in the morning to take a train from Florence to Rome, and then madly rushing to the Vatican City from our Airbnb apartment, we also took part in Rome’s Ultimate free walking tour. It was amazing and we highly recommend it! Our tour guide, Jobe, was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about the history of Rome. But, that’s a post for another day!
