The people, the food and the lifestyle just truly appealed to me.
Here are pics from my trip. I love looking at these pictures. Enjoy!
|Our first gondola ride.|
|Close to St. Mark's square|
|A view from the bridge.|
|Venice really is sinking! This is INSIDE one of the museums.|
|Piazza San Marco|
|@ Piazza San Marco|
|The water taxis|
|Ponte Di Rialto...the Rialto Bridge|
|I did selfies way before the Kardashians made it famous :-).|
|Florence...Close to the Duomo|
|My sister decided to embrace the Church :-).|
|We climbed up Il Duomo when we were there in 2007. And when I went back in 2012 with J, we went up this one...The campanile.|
|At the top. Yes, we were sweating. It was a long way up.|
|The Spanish steps. It didn't change much from 2007 to 2012 when I revisited.|
|Fontana di Trevi|
|In front of the Colosseum. You have to pay to take pictures with them. It isn't free.|
|Inside the Colosseum.|
|At the Vatican in Rome.|
|This was one of the scenes from Mission Impossible 3. Wicked cool!|
|Dinner with my sister on our first night there.|
|I looked so young in this picture. Little did I know that 4-months from then, I would meet the man I would later marry. Oh and yeah...he is part Italian!|
Hope you're having an awesome week so far. For my east coast readers, be safe and stay warm!
