The end of Italy

Hello everyone!
We have left Italy! We took an over night train ride to Paris, which turned out to be quite the experience. We had originally thought that we booked a four person cabin for us to sleep in, and were so pumped about not having to share with anyone, when in walks some random dude. It wouldn't of been so bad, but he had the smelliest feet in the world! and seen as there was not much we could do about it, we sucked it up and slept the whole train ride, 12 hours later arriving in Paris!
