Onward to Italia

May 14:  Today was the day we had to say goodbye to M & K and their little cuties.

We were grateful for the all the time we'd been able to spend with them, but it was tough to finally say goodbye, especially knowing that it would be a few months before we'd see them again.   

We drove the few hours to London Stansted Airport, then caught a flight to Rome!    We arrived to Rome starved and ready for some good old fashioned Italian food.   The shuttle driver recommended Mezza Brenta bia del Casale Agostinel Roma, which was not too far of a walk from our hotel for the night.  

No one spoke much English there, but with the help of google translate and some pretty humorous butchering of Italian words we thought we knew,  we managed to order ourselves some pretty tasty authentic Italian food. 

Stay tuned for more Italian adventures...

Quite some experiences you had. Trying to order Italian food in Italian. That would be hard when no one in your family has studied a speck of Italian. Did they have spaghetti, ravioli, parmesana, lasagne, etc on their menu or are those all anglicized words?

Speaking of "speck"....that was one of the ingredients we had trouble translating. :) Can you guess what it is?

Dad thinks pepper I guess bread and butter. By the way what lucky ducks you are that you got to spend time with M and K and kiddos.
