Rebecca's note: I am pleased to introduce a guest blogger who will be blogging alongside me over the next month - my daughter, Zoe. She wanted to try blogging as a way to document what she's experiencing on our month away. I'm sure she'd love to hear your feedback! :)
This is so exciting! We’ve been talking about this for months, and now it’s actually happening! I’m on my flight to Rome, Italy. We flew over the CN tower. It doesn’t look so tall from up here!
I’m flying Alitalia and the movies on the screen are all in Italian, so I can’t understand anything!
I’m hoping I don’t get really bad Jetlag! When we arrive in Rome, I’ll feel like it’s 1:00 in the morning but it’ll actually be 7:00 am.
Now I’m off the plane and we’ve been at a café for about an hour since a man named Romano picked us up from the airport in this huge van-taxi. It could fit 8 passengers, not including him! We can’t check in to our apartment until 11:00, so we’re sitting at this café table with all our suitcases and lots of people are giving us weird looks. Our apartment is 10-15 minutes away from basically all the Roman sites. Today we visited the Piazza Navona and tomorrow a new day begins!

There are so many things to see and do, I can’t get my head around that we’re actually in Rome!
