Every day that I’ve been home, I’ve had every intention of updating the site, but there’s just so much that I saw and experienced, that I’ve felt that there’s no way I can even begin to cover it all. Instead I’ve covered none of it!
Italy was amazing. Toni was fantastic. Seeing my good friend Brian (for the first time in seven years) was wonderful. I’m still riding on a vacation high, I think.
I saw so many things. I saw St. Peter’s Cathedral. I walked through The Sistine Chapel. I jumped up and down with glee at experiencing the awe-inspiring Colosseum. The Roman Forum gave me chills and I can’t believe that I stood mere inches from where Julius Caesar was cremated. I tossed a coin backward into the Trevi Fountain and climbed the dome of St. Peter’s. I stared in fascination at Michelangelo’s David and I stood in front of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. I circled the Leaning Tower of Pisa and marveled at the fact that it remains standing.
I have seen and done amazing things and I feel so fortunate to have been able to do this. Pictures, most of the 1700 that I took, are up on Flickr. Feel free to comment on them there or here!
Now if I could only adjust to life back at home!
