The Family That Photobooths Together, Stays Together

taken at Antica Roma

Italy has been AWESOME!!! We're done with the Rome leg of the trip and are at Florence right now. I'm so happy that the place we're staying in has free net. Yey! (happy dance) I missed you, internet.

In Rome, we visited the Colosseum, Roman Forums, Palatine Hill, Villa Borghese, Piazza Di Spagna, Vatican City, St. Peter's Basilica, and the Sistine Chapel. Everything was beautiful but my personal favorite was the Colosseum. It really took my breath away and the history is something else. So many people have died in there for the entertainment of the Roman emperor. Gladiators were mostly criminals and slaves so they were treated like animals condemned to die.

Yesterday, we hired a Filipino driver, Carlito, to drive us to Florence from Rome. We took a detour to outlet stores (my dad's a sucker for discounts and sales) then stopped by Pisa to see the Leaning Tower. It was a looooong drive but I enjoyed it! The Italian countryside is beautiful.

I promise I will upload pictures to share once I get home. I left the camera cable at home because I didn't think I would have had the chance to upload over here!

Since I can't upload any pictures i took in Rome, I'm sharing a picture of my family playing around with my brother's Photobooth. It was our first day in Rome, just after a loooong flight (an hour and a half from Manila to Hong Kong, 2-hour layover at HK airport, 12 hours from HK to Rome) all cramped up so we kinda got a little crazy. Yup, that's my family!

It's our first full day in Florence and we'll be off on a walking tour to see the city plus museums. I'll be able to see Michelangelo's David today!

Ciao, bella!
