Rome

No TWD for me this week and the next few weeks, I'm traveling. Our trip started last Friday when we left for Rome. For us (H. and I) it was the our first visit, K. had been here before. We have visited a lot of the city's high lights, like Galleria Boghese, Sistene Chapel, Pantheon Colosseum, Trevi Fountian, the Spanish Steps etc. But also left a few for a future visit.
For H. and me both the Galleria Boghese was the most beautiful thing we visited, loved the statues by Bernini there!
Trevi Fountain

And than there was the food of course, great pastas, pizzas and desserts, wow, we really have to come back.

Tomorrow we will leave by train to Civitaveccchia, where we will board the Carnival Splendor for our 16 day Rome to Ft. Lauderdale cruise.

On the way we will visit Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Malaga, Funchal (Madeira) and St. Maarten. If I have access to the internet I'll keep you up to date!

Have a great time! I'm a fellow TWD baker, and I was thinking that it would be nice if we all could chip in and get Laurie some small token/gift for all the work she does. Would you be willing to contribute? If I can get enough people, it would only be about $1 per person. No pressure :-) Let me know! bethberg12@yahoo.com

It's a great time of year to be in Rome. I too was there years ago around Thanksgiving. Enjoy and save trip

Looking forward to your recipe this week.

I love the Borghese. The sculptures are fabulous. It might be my all time favorite art museum.

Have fun.

Great shot of the fountain...my husband and son were there with a choir group and they tried to get such a good shot, but too many people around it all the time...yours was a great choice, straight on, above the crowds. Very nice.
