As we’ve both been to Rome before, this time we opted to check out some of the spots we’ve skipped during past trips. We sought out the Quartiere Coppedèo neighbourhood for its unique architecture, the modern art museum and finally the Castel Sant’Angelo, which along with some great views over Rome has some very cool old weaponry on display.
Also, we muse on the timing of church bells over Rome!
This is pretty much just a photo post because there’s a bunch of stuff that I took with my phone that I didn’t have time to deal with earlier thanks to my laptop dying. Again.
Hope you like them!
I just don’t.. uh.. what?

Our initial thoughts were that Jesus was escaping from men with crossbows that had traveled back in time from the middle ages, when crossbows were invented, because they were gong to kidnap him and use his magical powers to enjoy endless amounts of awesome Jesus wine. Turns out it’s some other saint. Supposedly.
Boy George’s great, great, great, great etc grandfather. For reals.
No funny here – just the best gelato shop… maybe in the world! Check it out if you’re in Bologna.
We hit up Bratislava and soak up the sun and atmosphere of the May Day celebrations! Fortunately for everyone the weather was good that day, as the next day was not so great. During our rainy wanderings we discuss Bratislava and our new “discovery” of the Habsburgs.
