Tuesday Travels: Rome

So here is the last leg of our Europe trip in June 2010. Roma, Italia. (So am I the only one who never knew they call their city Roma...and not Rome?!) We had a blast in Rome. Since it was the last city we visited in Europe we definitely went out with a bang. Lets just say I was a bit hungover as we made our way to the airport for the flight back to the United States. Make sure to check out the video at the end of this post. It's pretty entertaining.

I miss the Gelato the most!
An American Flag hanging in a bar in Rome. 

Teaching some Australians and Italians how to play flippy cup in a bar in Rome.....Yep, we even keep it classy when we travel. HA!

    And last but not least the video of Jason singing one of his favorite Italian songs. You see, Jason and I took an Italian class in college. Our professor always played these Italian songs and for some reason Jason had a mild obsession (I have no idea why) with this song and knew every word to it. So when we decided to go to Rome he was a little too excited to look cool and sing this song in Italian there. Well the hilarious part was when we told the waitress (who he is singing with in the video) about it she started laughing at him. She then informed Jason that the singer of this song was the gay icon of Italy and it would be like him (a 27 year old male) being excited to sing Ricky Martin's ""Livin La Vida Loca or something! Ha! So you would think Jason would then be embarrassed for knowing such a lame song. Nope not my husband. He belted that song out in perfect, okay maybe not so perfect, Italian for the whole bar to hear. 

So that was Rome. And sadly that was the end of Europe for us. Ciao!
