That's right, folks! We're back in the states after leaving way back on October 12th. Although I tried to keep updates on a regular basis, we were 'out in the vines' for the majority of our trip or I simply didn't have time to spend in front of the computer.
Here's a brief recap:
> Italy is wonderful - if you haven't gone yet, you should definitely start planning.
> Tuscany is gorgeous and should definitely be included in your planning.
> Roma, Siena, Firenze and Cinque Terre have more beauty & history than one could ever imagine!
> They don't call it Vatican City for nothing - it's enormous.
> Pop tastes better in Europe (real sugar) but it costs a lot lot more (sometimes $3.36/bottle)
> Bring additional memory cards and batteries for your digital camera - you'll need them.
> Scooters own the streets of Roma.
> You can easily go through two bottles of wine at dinner.
Over all, we had a great time with Heather and Adam on our trip to Europe. There were a few setbacks (like having our return flight cancelled) but we also got to meet Dave & Julie, some really nice people that we spent our last days with at the hotel/airport.
Now it's time to get back to reality...
