We have arrived in Europe and are having a very exciting trip! We have taken a slight detour to Rome, Italy. Our first plane was delayed and we missed our connection to Bulgaria, so we spent the night in Rome. We made the most of it!

After taking a few minutes to freshen up, we went out for the evening. We had an amazing authentic Italian dinner in the heart of Rome. Then it was time for some late night exploration. Walking the cobblestone streets of Rome, we explored monuments, shops, and of course, gelateria. We were able to see the outside of the Roman Pantheon, The Coliseum, and several other beautiful historical sites and buildings.
Here are some photos of our night on the town:
The next morning, we took the train to St. Peter’s Basilica and walked around in the neighborhood around Vatican City.
Although this detour was unexpected, we made the most of our chance to spend a little time in the charming city of Rome. We are in the Leonardo da Vinci airport and all set to board our plane. Tonight we will arrive in Sofia and drive to the village of Stolat.
