The first time Mike needed a passport was when we visited my Dad in Italy over Christmas holidays in 2010. It was also the first time the two of them met – quite a monumental trip.
If you’re going to pose with one of the many costumed actors at the Roman Forum, be prepared for them to ask for 20 Euro after the photo has been taken and without any notice beforehand. Also be prepared to only give them 2 Euro despite their demands for more.
In addition to Rome, we did quite a bit of exploring in Naples and Cuma. Mike and I are heading back to Europe at the end of April for an anniversary/birthday trip.
**In preparation for my trip to Germany/Austria/Slovenia in April, I’m going to start a temporary travel series that revisits some of my favorite places and photos.**
