Italy... muah!

Italy was incredible... history and art wrapped into one perfect combo! 
Italy's memory list:

*Laundry hanging out the windows of colorful apartments beside the flower boxes...
*Reading 2 Timothy by the prison where Paul wrote it... un-explainable moment. (Prison cells like the picture to the right is where he would have been kept.)
*My one soggy pizza... J's 9 pizzas in 5 days- he didn't share in my distaste...
*Three attempts and fails of people trying to steal our things..
*Feeling the urge to facepalm all the street salesmen...
*Did I mention the amazing historical buildings? Awesome.
*Saw the Pope release some doves of some sort...
*Eating at a classic Italian restaurant, only thing missing was music... A street performer came right by our table and played his accordion just for us...
*Large butter balls on my pasta instead of meatballs... I need to learn more languages.

And more to come... Have a blessed week!

  8. So fun!! A friend of mine was an exchange student in Italy this past year, and, after having four years of Latin, Italy is one of those places I hope to go some day. Thanks for sharing! Great pictures.

  13. Your pictures have done justice to Italy. I adore it and I could easily spend a good month there. Although I would come back twenty pounds heavier! Looking forward to go through your archives :)
