Rome – October 13th & 14th 2017 It was finally time for us to leave the Amalfi coast (we were ready! The oddly laid out rental with no WiFi had lost its charm days before haha). The 4 hour drive to Rome was pretty easy. We had gotten used to the crazy drivers on the...

Barcelona to Rome – October 6th 2017 Our ferry was very basic, slightly disappointing given the advertising we had seen. We had been excited to have the pool on deck for the next day while at sea. This would keep the kids busy for hours. Nope, pool closed and drained. ugh. So we left just...

Barcelona – October 4th 2017 The day after the strike we finally made it into Barcelona city! The day after the strike was a toss up whether full service would resume on the trains so we took a chance and headed to the station. The train arrived (albeit a bit late) and we hopped on...
