Trip Report Apres_Londee's Trip Report: London & Rome

Jump to last reply

Well, I just returned from a two week trip to England and Rome and as usual the posters on this board were invaluable to me while planning. Thank you everyone who answered my questions and provided advice, and thank you all posters past and present (and Fodors itself) because I almost always find at least 75% of the information I need by doing a search. This is without a doubt the very best travel resource I know.

This Christmas trip sort of came up out of nowhere near the end of the summer. The original plan was a week in London and then a week in Rome with my sister in October. Then my sister found a new job in the summer and couldn't take vacation time in October. After some discussion, we decided to go to Rome the week after Christmas instead. My parents were going to be visiting my sister in England at Christmas, and they kindly offered to pay for my share of the apartment rental if I joined them. So the new plan was to spend some time in England over the holidays, and then take off to Rome with my sister. Luckily, I was able to change our apartment rental in Rome with no trouble.

Unfortunately, my sister couldn't join me in Rome after all due to some visa troubles in the UK (things are getting sorted out on that end now, thankfully...hmmm, maybe I should get her to ask everybody's favourite illegal "sandy" for some additional advice). This meant I would be on my own in Rome. Besides being disappointed, I was also a little nervous about going alone. I had a wonderful time, though, and ended up falling in love with the city and enjoying myself immensely.

I'm not very organized when it comes to trip reports but I'll do my best to try to keep things relevant :)
