Roma, che bella

I was lucky enough to have my mom come and visit me for a week. And, even luckier, we were able to go to Rome to visit some of her family! Even though I’m a quarter Italian, I’ve never been before and haven’t met any family that lives there, so this was such a cool experience.

To be brief, Italy was absolutely gorgeous. I’m kind of a history buff and it was amazing to see so many ancient ruins of all these places I’ve only read about in textbooks!

My family is so sweet, and it was fantastic to meet them all. We spent some quality time together and even though I know no Italian whatsoever, between my mom translating some and my family’s limited English, the language barrier was no issue. I can’t wait to go back someday soon.

Hi, mom, I know you’re reading this, thanks for a great trip!
