The plane was delayed an hour, and I only had two hours in-between flights, which ended up not being enough time. I missed the next flight to Istanbul and the airline had rescheduled me on the next flight, which was nine hours later. Ok, I'm sitting there, at Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino airport with nine hours and nothing to do. I grabbed my bag, my passport, and two girls I met on the plane and headed out to explore. We received some incredibly confusing directions to the Colosseum and left. Needless to say, I would rather spend nine hours eating gelato at the Colosseum any day.
|I NEVER thought this is what I would be doing during my Italy layover. I was so thankful, for once, for my ticket transfer.|
|The boxers made me giggle.|
|When in Rome!|
|Thankfully, we found the train station after being completely turned around and confused for longer than we expected.|
|I would say we had an incredible day, completed with lemon and strawberry gelato. I've always wanted to try it, but not until I was actually in Italy. Blessed!|
