This morning, we woke up as hobos which was exhilarating! We officially have nowhere to sleep tomorrow night and have no idea where we’ll be. When we woke up, we headed to the train station to plot our next move. We had talked about spending a few days traveling through Italy, probably stopping in Florence first, but Kristine showed some interest in Pisa so we looked into it and saw that train tickets from Rome to Florence were the same price as the tickets from Rome to Pisa then Pisa to Florence. The plan is to get to Pisa ASAP, spend the afternoon there, and then take the last train to Florence. Our rough plan is to spend tonight in Florence then all day tomorrow and tomorrow night and leave some time the next day. If the side trip to Pisa works out, we’ll probably do something similar by making a side trip to Bologna on the way from Florence to Venice. Athens may be out of our itinerary, as we have both heard from separate sources that its overrated and that there isn’t much to do. We thought about going to the Greek Isles to relax a bit and making a day trip to Athens, but who knows. The flight from Venice to Barcelona is only $79 compared to $239 from Venice to Athens, so that might have made the decision for us. Anyways, I’m now sitting in the train station with Kristine asleep on my lap waiting for our train to Pisa!
