When in Rome

I have returned home from an amazing long weekend in Rome, I had the most fun. The people on the trip consisted of me, my boyfriend Chris, our housemates Clare and Graeme and three of his friends (now our friends too) Jim, John and Chris. Along the way we picked up various new additions to our gang including Katie, an american with a brilliant sense of direction, Tanille, named after Captain and Tanille and a variety of loud, drunk Americans.

With approximately 10 hours sleep over 5 days we had gone past tired and were all pretty much up for anything. Our days were spent sightseeing and our nights were spent socialising and not sleeping. The Colosseum was amazing, literally awesome and we managed to spend a few hours in there chatting, taking photos and watching the sun go down. As the resident photographer I was left out of group shots and severely mocked but ah well...
The Colosseum also saw the brilliance that is DO A FACE. Which is a game (of sorts) where you shout 'do a face' and take a photo. The results are fantastic.

The Sistine Chapel was amazing but sadly you're not allowed to photos, boooo on them. We did enjoy a lovely group hug in there though.
I highly recommend Rome for the amazing architecture and history but the night life is very lacking and expensive, we tackled this by going on a pub crawl but it was more of a pub hike...
All in all a brilliant trip that I'll remember forever. Hoorah!
