This trip will be with me forever.


up the Italy trip.  These are random shots in Rome.

I went to Venice when I was 16, but couldn't
appreciate the art and architecture at that age.
This trip allowed me to see some of the most exquisite
works of art - especially the Sandro Boticelli room at the
Uffizi in Florence.  I got as close as I could to the 
delicate brushwork of flowers on Primavera and
The Birth of Venus.  And I lingered as long as I could 
under Michelangelo's Sistine Ceiling at the Vatican.  
The Cimabue and Masacchio paintings were 
also special to me.

This trip will be with me forever.


  1. Beautiful... as all of these trip=posts have been! (well, and ALL your posts!)
    I'm now craving a cappuccino!

  2. I can see why, sister! The beauty, the history, the art, the old buildings the food the cappuccinos! I'm going to read the newest post before I go to sleep tonight. It looks like a long and juicy story. ;)
    I'm so glad you had such a fantastic time there. I'm glad you're home safe, too.

    1. Thank you for enduring these on-going posts about Italy... almost done. ha ha!
