Thanks Rose, I'm getting a little sad all over again as this cruise is winding down in my travel journal.

We didn't get to Napoli when we were in Italy...I wonder how it compares to other cities, like Florence or Verona?

Isn't it amazing how OLD this stuff is? Every time I travel to Europe, I'm amazed by the amount of history they have that we never will have (we'll never catch up!)

Yes Lori.  Ancient is something that won't happen in the US for many years.  I was really surprised at the amount of rubble, of homes and businesses that were bombed during world war 2 and still standing broken, as artifacts.  It was...

Yes. Although I feel like it would be difficult to get it across in photos. When we were in Turkey, we saw cave etchings that we incredibly complex and intricate, and they wouldn't let us use flash.

I can understand no flash...but even the iPhone takes great pictures in lit rooms, in low light situations, without flash.  I got away with snapping a few, I wish I had gotten more in the catacombs.

Yeah...I did get SOME pictures without the flash. It really is hard, though, to communicate the incredible intricacy of these things, and the awe you feel looking at beautiful paintings that old.

Well, I'm glad you stuck around to take photos, because we benefit from that.   I love that your camera bag has a name...   I know you're an old hand at pasta, but when we were in Italy (specifically Loveré , we had lasagna for lunch...

Of course! If you mouse over the word "recipe" in that last post, you'll see a link to my blog entry with the recipe. Let me know how it works out for you. SO YUMMY. Might have to do it in the very near future....

That's the problem with tours, isn't it? You have to go at THEIR pace, and not yours. Still, you can get more information from a tour that you  might get by yourself, so it's a trade-off...   Great photos, as usual.

We were well rested and ready to go on our Naples excursion.  The tour I picked for the day was "A Taste of Naples: PIZZAS & PIAZZAS".  It was a four hour tour that took us to the heart of Naples and dropped us off in front of the Piazza...

Oh, writing about my travels is helping me relive the experience but it's wearing me out in a different way.  At least my legs aren't tired.  Nor is my back screaming!  But emotionally, I'm toast! So, after visiting Gandolfo...

I was a little nervous about today's nine hour excursion, about my ability to do it.  The excursion guide said it was the equivalent of 1800 yards, but it was more like 1800 miles.  Just kidding, it wasn't that far, but it was a lot of walk,...

Lucca, Lucca, Lucca.  I loved it there.  The walking pace was faster than my liking once again.  How do you get a chance to really shoot if you have to walk fast to keep up?  Anyway, Lucca was mostly flat once you got into the...
