This and That from Italy

If you follow along here then you may already know that I am off on a trip getting to know Italy!

my first stop – The Vatican…


The scaled model above gave me a sense of how big Vatican City really is but nothing could have prepared me for the beauty of this place…

the balcony I have seen so often via television…

St. Peter's Basilica

A view out into the garden…


The sun shining through the windows in St. Peter’s Basilica is breathtaking…


Coliseum Rome

I unwisely chose to travel without my laptop and am dealing with some technical issues!  Perhaps I will come home with a better working relationship with my iPad but the jury is still out on that!  Just wanted to touch base with you all in real time and give a glimpse into what I am experiencing.  Thanks so much,as always, for following along here!  More and better photos to come, I promise!

    WOW! Again, WOW!
    (I was only 15 yrs old when I saw St. Peter’s Basilica for the first time – breathtaking is the perfect description.)
    First thing I thought of when I awoke this morning was “wonder what our EYES ON THE WORLD, that would be YOU, is seeing right now?” Hope today is “head-spinning” wonderful and even more beautiful than yesterday!!!
    Addio per ora e hanno una splendida serata!!!
