Capri/Pompeii trip


Last week I went to Italy and got to see some places that I've read about in history books. I went to Sicily, Naples/Pompeii, Rome, Tuscany/Pisa, and Monaco/French Rivera. There were some highlights of the trip: seeing an erupting volcano, seeing the Colosseum, St. Peter's at the Vatican, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and Pompeii.


Some of the pictures I have here are of me overlooking a bay on Capri Island (beautiful place), a gorgeous wall painting on a place of business like a cafeteria in Pompeii, a dog mosaic in the floor at Pompeii and a picture on the wall with graffiti (yes, people do deface a site that is nearly 2000 years old!)


I had a great time, but traveling can be exhausting. I'm glad I'm home and back to a normal routine.

It was fun to look at all the places you've heard about for years, Pamela.
