George and I went to Europe Sept 2013 , I was excited to go as its been 30 years since I went the last time, back then I was young and did not fully appreciate it. We arrived in Rome mid afternoon and found a taxi which too, us to our B&B. Ok so I was in for a surprise spoiled by American standards of B&B after running my own I was not remotely prepared for this one. In Europe you are not staying in some one’s home like here , they have apartments which they convert into multiple rooms for many guests and you all share a bathroom . Ours was like staying in a hostel, big shock for the princess here….
