Rome, Italy

yes, you read that right. we’re now in Italy. about three days ago while looking at the calendar, we realized we had plenty of time to get up the coast of Croatia. enough time, actually, that Bob suggested we take a few days to run over to Venice once we got to northern Croatia. so we started looking into it and shortly into our…
