We are packed and ready for Rome!

Tomorrow are head off to Rome for a few days! We are flying Ryanair and being a budget airline they charge for EVERYTHING including cabin bags. The only thing you get for free is a “personal item” that fits under the seat measures no more than 35 x 20 x 20 centimeters. So that’s all we are taking!

We will be gone five days and four nights total, with two travel days and 3 full days in Rome. The weather will likely be rainy and a little chilly, but we are hoping for some sun as well!
