I took these bike photos when Ben Blair and I were in Florence and Pisa. What is it with Italy and charming bikes? : ) I’m hoping to add to my bike photo collection in Rome. Rome! We just bought tickets to Rome for the Easter Break!! In fact, we fly in on Easter Sunday. I wonder if the city will be absolutely nuts…

I’ve never been to Rome and can’t wait to make plans and packing lists. Have you been? Tell me everything! Where should we stay? eat? explore? We’ll have about 5 days. So excited!

P.S. — Have you heard of airlines like EasyJet and RyanAir? They just fly to and from European destinations and sometimes you can score crazy cheap tickets! Flying our whole family from Paris to Rome costs about as much as one ticket from the U.S. to Rome. Crazy!
