We downloaded Rick Steves' Audio Europe travel app and enjoyed a fantastic, free walking tour around the heart of Rome.
It's been just under two weeks since we arrived at our Airbnb in Rome - time is flying fast! But not everything has been plain sailing this week.
Did you miss us? It's been a little while, and a lot has happened. Not least we're now thousands of miles away from Vermont in Europe! Let's catch you up.
The time has finally come for a new set of tires on our F-150, but this time we decided to change the wheels too - find out why and what we chose!

It stands apart as the only National Park Unit that celebrates a single art form: jazz. Join us as we visit The Big Easy, learn about jazz and even try some jazz yoga!
Despite being one of the most significant Ancestral Puebloan archaeological sites in Colorado, it's very rarely visited - and maybe that's a good thing.
Off-Roadingview more »
We replaced the OEM tow hooks on our Ford F-150 with the Rough Country tow hook shackle mount and D-rings to improve our recovery capabilities.
What happens when off-roading goes wrong? We found out when a normally straightforward 11-mile trail turned into a 24-hour ordeal.

When I lived in England, I spent over 8 years in and around the North Yorkshire area. It's a beautiful part of England, with several National Parks within easy reach. One of these is the North York Moors National Park, and I was excited for the opportunity to take Diana there when we were back in the UK recently.
Within our busy schedule for our trip to Europe, we had carved out 10 days to visit Scotland. Although I've been to Scotland several times before, it's been years since I last visited and Diana has never been. Scotland is a beautiful country and we were keen to see as much as we could in the short time available to us. Looking back, I think we ended up with the perfect itinerary.
