You know what I mean....the "I make folk jewelry in my kiln and weave traditional fabrics on my loom and sell them at craft fairs" look.

You forgot the I made these sandals myself out of hemp to complete the look!

I am also looking forward to the gardens. From my understanding it's the Central Park of Rome. Can't miss that!

So both of my parents independently suggested I buy a wig to cover my hair. Really? It's 100 outside. Don't these people know about my awesomeness radiating from within for crying out loud? Self-esteem complex party of one, right this way, we have you a seat over here with your parents! A wig? Come on, people, really?

On the awesome side because I'm so tall the only people who will notice my hair growing out will be John and Kevin. I can totally live with that!

While we haven't visited the Borghese Museum, we have walked all through the Borghese Gardens.

The gardens are not a long walk from our hotel, but be warned.....it is all uphill.

That being said, the gardens are basically a big city park that used to be the Borghese estate.

There are some statues and a cafe or two, but for the most part, the gardens are large lawns and tree lined walkways.

There is a spectacular overlook with the Vatican and St Peter's Basilica off in the distance.

This is not to persuade or disuade anyone from visiting the gardens, but more so that you have an idea of what you'll find.

Rome is a big modern city with fascinating historic places / ruins around every corner.

For every broad thoroughfare, there are a dozen twisty, turny ancient side streets to explore.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

If someone is looking for another possible "free time" activity while in Rome, you might be interested in this:

The Vatican has released 100 documents from its' archives and has put them on exhibit at the Capitoline Museum The exhibit just opened February 29th and will close on September 1st. This is really the opportunity of a lifetime.

Here is the link to the website - http://www.luxinarcana.org/en

The Vatican did a traveling exhibit like this in the US several years ago. It was very cool to see. Jeri and I drove down to Tampa to view it. There were documents and Pope clothes and art. Very cool. However, just to warn, at leat in Tampa the crowd control left a lot to be desired. It was like MK on New Years. You're in there shoulder to shoulder with folks. And most of them are little old people. And unless you're willing to knock them down, which after about an hour I started thinking about it, you can't get close enough to the exhibits to read the info cards. It took us about four hours to get though the entire thing. But that was just our experience in Florida. Could be more, better, different in Rome.

You know, Rome. Where we're going. In three weeks!

Am I right that Kevin, John and Matt should be leaving soon? Wanted to say safe travels and can't wait to see ya! In Rome!

Thanks Lauren,

I leave the house this Sunday (my trip to Barcelona is a bit convoluted) - and will see Kevin and John in Barcelona next Sunday - what can go wrong, a boat on the Mediterranean right.....

I'm sure there will be a story or two to tell in a bar in Rome. Looking forward to seeing you all.

Matt

The Euros I ordered have arrived at the bank.

I've informed the bank of my travel dates.

I've purchased the majority of the things I need for the trip.

I've been dealing with bronchitis for the past week...but I've been abnormally productive while being so sick.

Three weeks from now today I will be headed to the airport.

1) Feel better soon
2) "abnormally productive" is a wonderful phrase. May I plagiarize it?

The Grom Gelato Flavor Of The Month For May Is.....
Cannolo Sicilian
-Made with Sheep's Ricotta, Wheat Biscuits and Chocolate Chips.

I think I would still prefer Caramello Al Sale, which will also most likely be the only three words of Italian that I'll be able to speak.

I've already planned out my OYO time, it will be spent comparing and contrasting gelato shops throughout Rome and Venice

Don 't forget all the comparing that needs to be done with Prosecco
