Leaving Barcelona to Rome

sunny 35 °C

We woke up and packed all of our stuff and headed out to the metro and took the metro to the bus station and ran for our bus, getting there just in time! Took a one hour bus to the Girano airport for our flight to Rome. Flew Ryan Air to Rome and had a horrible flight.. so turbulent! So glad it was a short flight. Landed and took the hottest bus EVER to our the train station.. it was 34 degrees and no air conditioning uggghhhhh... but we made it to our hostel finally! Such a long tavel day but happy to be in Rome. Took a walk down to the Colloseum which is lit up at night and just laid down and looked at the stars for awhile, so relaxing and amazing to be in Rome lying next to the Colloseum. Headed back to our room and had an early night. We slept in the next day by accident but hurried to get outta the room we had A LOT to do today. We took a tour of the colloseum and a few other museums and monuments. It is sooooooooo hot here, they say it will be 45 degrees in a couple days. We stopped for a great lunch.. I had the freshest bruchetta and fruit at a decent price. Eventually made it back to our room around 6 and showered to head out for a pub crawl. Walked back to the Colloseum to meet up for the pub crawl. Went to the first bar and had all you can drink for the first hour and some yummy pizza and tshirts.... ended up getting a free bottle of champagne from the bartender lol nice lil welcome to Rome for sure... definately took advantage of the all you can drink happy hour lol left for the next bar an hour later and was ready to go lol... didnt end up spending much more money really, the first hour held us over til the end of the night with a drink or two in the middle. Met so many people from canada.. had a great time but ended up leaving a little early cuz it was getting outta control lol... Leah definately needed to go back to the room. Pub crawl was defintely a good idea and a great time. We just woke up (june 18th) and came to the internet cafe to book our next hostel in Florence, we leave here on Saturday and take the train to Florence. Dont get wifi on my laptop so I wont be updating til probably saturday or sunday. Miss you all very much! But Im having an amazing trip so far :)
