On to Venice part One

To continue my series of posts from our vacation, I move on to Venice. That's Venice Italy (as opposed to Venice California...) just to be clear :)
We spent about two days there and we found Venice to be magical, romantic, and pretty! Here's what we saw and did on our first day in Venice...

Rome part Three

It's been almost four weeks since our vacation, and I'm still day dreaming about Rome. It was just so wonderful!
This is my third post of vacation photos, hope I'm not boring you with those, I just enjoy sharing :)
This time it's the fourth day in Rome. We took that day easy, starting with a walk through Villa Bourgeoisie which is a HUGE park that starts right by our hotel and stretches in to the center of Rome. We continued from there to the train station to buy our tickets for Venice, and then spent the rest of the day just strolling along. 

Photos from Venice will be posted next :)

Rome part Two

I am so glad you guys liked the first photos I posted from our wonderful trip to Rome & Venice. As I promised, those were just the beginning... Here are some more snaps from day three in Rome. We started that day off at the Colosseum and continued from there to other ruins in the area, as well as important buildings and monuments in the city.

and inside the colosseum

that's my "stop photographing me" stance :)

The locals call this building "the wedding cake"... (Capitol Building)

ending the day with some yummy gelato 

More to come in a few days.
