MEMORIES FROM A YEAR AGO - A TRIP TO ITALY

Last year, at the end of September/first of October, my husband and I had a wonderful trip to Italy. I am missing the beauty and culture of that country (and the food!), and am looking forward to our next visit. We were able to spend 3 weeks visiting Venice, Florence, Rome, and Southern Tuscany. I couldn't begin to say what my favorite area was-they were all unique and special in their own ways. I thought I would share some of my favorite memories.

The canal in front of our Bed & Breakfast in Venice:

Beautiful pictures!
I know you have precious memories.
What's next?

Cindy Ruth:

Thanks Sandi. I'm not sure what's next. I had the good fortune to win a trip through my work to Atlantis in the Bahamas this past April, and we added on 5 days to go to Harbor Island, which we loved. I'll post about that soon. We also went to Sonoma this month for our 25th anniversary, which I'll also post about soon. It's Hawaii in February for some sunshine and warmth(much needed when you spend the winter in Alaska). Hopefully Italy again in a couple of years. Not sure if we would want to go back to same areas, or someplace new. I was just thinking last night about starting back my Italian lessons....

Beautiful shots! They make me yearn to return to Italy.

Barb Cabot:

What beautiful photos. I'm sure each one takes you back to that exact moment you caught the image. Such wonderful memories for you. Thanks for sharing.

This is such a cool post! I love the photos!!

Will you be visiting Oahu? It would be fun to meet if it works out. I would be happy to help with any questions...

Cindy Ruth:

Thanks everyone. I'm glad I got some good photos while there. Girasoli-no, we won't be in Oahu. We'll be on Maui, and we're on a direct Alaska Air flight from Anchorage to Maui. If you ever visit Maui, let me know-I'd love to get together.
