how to have a fun vacation (Rome edition)

ditch the travel guidebook for one day.

pick a new word in Italian and repeat it endlessly (mine was grazie).

try every flavor of gelato until you find the perfect combination.

have pillow fights in your hotel room.

practice your voiceover skills. who knew that watching SpongeBob in Italian could be so fun?
