SR, back in the US

Back again in the states after two weeks traveling around Italy. I had a great trip through Rome, Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Venice. Toured all the Roman ruins and St. Peter's at the Vatican, and saw enough Renaissance art to have nightmares about being carried away by throngs of winged putti. (Well, not really, but close.)

Traveling was not without its drama - a train strike stranded us briefly in Pisa and Lucca, and I caught a hideous cold in Florence - but overall I had lots of fun.

I need some time to get my photos together and when I do that, I'll tell you more about the trip itself. Right now I still need to get back on schedule after flying in yesterday evening. (Wide awake at 4 a.m.! What fun!)

Thanks for checking in and leaving comments while I was gone. It was terrific to see that so many of you kept my blog alive while I took a break. :)

  1. Bon Giorno! Glad you're back. Hey, as soon as you get your feet back on the ground, let's make a plan for next weekend. Can't wait to catch up and hear all about your trip.

    I missed you!!

  2. Hi Steve,

    I'm glad your trip was terrific.

    Perhaps some day I will get off my duff and see some of the world before ...well, you know. Glad you're back.

    I loved your post title and "Yo"--made me laugh.
