To prepare, I watched Roman Holiday last weekend. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. In fact, you can watch it free on YouTube thanks to Paramount. There are no zombies (but some alcohol is imbibed - and even more is spilled).
Also new this year, we have a few traveling companions for part of our trip - Ryan's parents and his sister, Kate, will be with us for the first seven days of our journey.
Check back starting on Monday, June 16, if you want to see what we're up to.
