Cruising the Mediterranean

Hello from the Mediterranean! When Jon looked into taking a ferry from Rome to Barcelona across the Mediterranean he swore up and down that it would only be a 4 maaaybe 5 hour trip. HA HA JUST KIDDING. Its 20 hours. And here we are. Oh but the good news, the news that makes the entire thing worth while: Our ferry is like a cruise ship fully equipped with bars, restaurants, casino, arcade, shops and pools. Before we left the port town of Civitavecchia I bought a bathing suit and in my haste I did not try it on. I should have remembered that Italian women only grow to weigh approximately 13 pounds because when I tried the bottoms on here on the ship it looked like my ass and thighs were forced between two rubber bands and they were protesting.

I have photos and videos to share of the Roman Forum, the Pantheon and the Colosseum, all of which were amazing. I will post them when we arrive in Barcelona.

Adios por ahora!
