After years of hard work and a little play, my husband and I went on a much-anticipated European holiday this year. The setting for phase II of our adventure was la Bella Italia. Here's a sneak peek at our digital scrapbook:
When I think of Rome, this image comes to mind. The city doesn't win any prizes for hospitality or graciousness, but it is full of fantastic sculpture - mythical, dramatic, inspiring and always surprising. (photos: Vatican)
boutiques with shelves lined with candy-like pasta
History has a presence so thick here, it's like breathing in steam. (Coliseum)
right place, right time (photo: St. Peter's Basilica)
When you step into Italy, accordion music plays. Yes, they're very enterprising.
Gelato shops, where the cone variety rivals the gelato variety, are like Willy Wonka sets.
