On to Bologna

By Thushan Amarasiriwardena | 1 Comment » April 22nd, 2008

The eyes of a LongJaunter at three in the morning, trying to make it through the night without paying for a place to stay. Rome is expensive, real expensive for our budget. Even a hostel, where we slept in a dorm style room costs 30 euros, or about $48 a night. Our wallet dictated that we not paying for another night at the hostel – thus hanging out at a bar and the lobby before catching our train at 3 a.m to our next destination: Bologna. See it all in today’s photo gallery.

    dude, you’re giving me flashbacks of a eurail trip i made with my friend when we were in college. the last week or so we ran out of money and slept in public everywhere (sweden was the worst!), or slept on night trains. we also survived on a bag of bagels, peanut butter, and a bottle of malibu…ah, the memories. enjoying the blog!
