We proceeded to Rome where we checked into Camping Roma and our airconditioned room. We spent the rest of the afternoon laxing out by the pool!

Today we said goodbye to Michelle. Michelle was heading back home via New York as her visa had run out. As it was still extremely hot outside me and Debra decided to make the most of the sun and the pool and spent the morning relaxing by the pool and soaking up the talent. In the afternoon once it had cooled down we headed into the city and wandered around the Colessum, RomanForum and various other roman ruins and buildings.

This morning we ventured out to the Vatican City.
FACT - Did you know that the Vatican City is its own country? Is has a pretty much zero percent birth rate (being that most of its country people are nuns)!
Vatican City' officially the State of the Vatican City. At approximately 44 hectares (110 acres), and with a population of around 800, it is the smallest independent state in the world by both population and area. Vatican City is a city-state. It came into existence only in 1929. The state of Vatican City issues normal passports.
In the afternoon we headed to the airport to start some more adventures in Spain.
