After moving from the U.S. to Germany, I didn’t think I would experience a culture shock when visiting Italy for 9 days. Boy, was I wrong. I have never experienced as much of a culture shock in my life. The people, the streets, everything. We arrived on a Sunday evening, and as we were walking around at midnight, I just kept asking Marco, “Why are all these babies and kids still outside?!”

The vacation was lovely, though, and we had an amazing time. Here are some picture from our Italian vacation. Enjoy!

Our apartment was just a few blocks from the Spanish steps.
Me chilling in the beautiful (hot) Italian weather.
Drinking a Coke with Marco.
Marco’s gorgeous picture of the Trevi Fountain at night.
Fraggola and limone gelato.
Marco (kind of) and I in Vatican City.
Another of Marco’s gorgeous pictures. This is the Colosseum at night.
Hanging out at the Parthenon.
Our typical Italian breakfast with coffee and croissant (Marco and I missed our meat and eggs, though).
Poolside at the Agristurismo 4 Ricci
We threw some coins into the fountain, so that means we will be returning soon.
