So yeah, not too much accomplished today… I got up nice and early, but didn’t really make it out of the room until noon. Whoops.
I did make it to the Museum of Roman Civilization, which was pretty cool, but I’m not sure I was in a museum mood at the time, so cool as it was I didn’t really soak it in too much. Plus I committed the sin today of eating in McDonalds (didn’t have much time before the museum closed so I had to get something quick!), which is a huge mistake in Italy!!! It’s so… crappy.
Anyway, for some reason I was just generally moody today so I returned to my hotel and did what I normally do when I feel like being not moody anymore… I watched West Wing clips!!!!!!! I don’t know how or why, but that show makes me so happy lol.
Later on I took a walk around the city a bit and grabbed some food at my fav little pizza/pasta place… and that was my day. And frankly I’m not feeling bad about it – a few “off” days aren’t a bad thing, and I’m happy with what I’ve seen of Rome and Vatican City. No regrets.
So I wish I could say that as a result of this day, I decided to stay an extra one in Rome – but that’s not the reason. I found out that booking a train the night before is EXPENSIVE :p so I figured it would be cheaper to extend my stay here by a day and grab a train the following day… and that’s what I’ve done. I’ll be in Rome until the 26th now, and then head out to Venice from the 26th to 29th, probably catching a train from there to Zurich. The train, I might add, that I will be booking a bit earlier than the night before 😉
Found an ok looking place in Venice to stay, booked that, so we’re good to go. Sorry I don’t have anything else too exciting to report today, but if nothing else, it’s a short and easy read, right? 🙂
Have a good day!
