Ever wondered how long it would take to travel from Rome to Constantinople at the peak of the Roman Empire? Or from Luna to Larissa? Or Parma to Thessalonica?

It has been a trying year for me. I have illness after illness since Oct. 19th, last year. After numerous visits to a plethora of doctors, I finally have multiple diagnoses…and a permanent multitude of illnesses and disabilities. I am hoping that with a new doctor, these issues can be beaten into remission.
