Hi everyone, and welcome back! Things got a bit hectic, but I’m back with another post about Rome!

After a delayed/cancelled/rescheduled flight, my mom finally arrived in Madrid just in time for us to head to Atocha station and buy our train tickets for Barcelona. Originally, we were going to get tickets for the 11 a.m. AVE, but they only had first class left (almost $250/ticket!), so … Continue reading A Few Hours in Atocha
Hi everyone! If you read my last post, you’ll know I took a trip a while back to Portugal. If you haven’t read about my time in Lisbon, you can hop on over, after you read this post of course!
