Apart from our daytrip to Andorra last July, it's been a while since we traveled to a new country. By that, I mean a country that we haven't visited before. Italy, doesn't qualify 100% as a new country, since Hjörtur went there as a kid, but to the rest of us it´s new. It's quite funny actually that we've never been to Italy considering that we've traveled to all countries around.
Since we'll be leaving pretty soon, we're busy planning away. First and foremost, we need to decide where to stay for the first 4 nights, when we´re in Rome before leaving for Croatia (after Croatia we´ll come back to Italy). Believe it or not, we´re looking into camping grounds. Yes, you read that correctly. We won 365 free hotel nights and we´re looking into camping grounds, lol. We´re torn between Plus Camping Roma (in two 3 person tents) or Plus Camping Fabulous (mobile home w. 6 beds). If you´ve stayed at either one of them or know your way around Rome, we´d love to hear your thoughts!
So far our itinerary covers most of the must-see classics such as the Colosseum, Pantheon, Vatican, Spanish Steps and Trevi fountain.
But, hey, who cares about ancient Roman sites and artifacts when you're surrounded by the world´s best gelato (or so I'm told). Since Jökull doesn´t talk about much else than the fact that he´s going to Italy to eat pink ice cream, we can't wait to find out where the best "gelaterias" are ;-)
