After the weeks of preparation and anticipation...it’s FINALLY here!
So having a pretty sweet time in Italy! St. Peters is AMAZING took my breath away
Mmmh Italian McDonald's.. pistachio flurry looked disgusting but tasted amazing.
I couldn't dream a place better than this. I woke up in a cloud and watched the most amazing sunset tonight. More than perfect, loving Assisi!
Assisi is beautiful! We are all loving Assisi! You see God's beauty everywhere and you feel the peace and love all over. We celebrated New Year in Assisi and we really enjoyed our time at the square!
What a beautiful day in Rome! Got here at 7 as the sun was rising, checked into a room with an awesome view, fed pigeons at Vatican square and toured ancient Rome. One day down, nine more to go!
