We’ve been so busy moving and talking about Seattle, that I haven’t really talked about our vacation.

In mid-December, we traveled to Italy – the boot shaped country in Europe.   In addition to Venice (pictured above) as also traveled to Florence and Rome (pictured to the side).

Italy was amazing.   There is so much history there, to go to Rome and see buildings that were built 2000 ago, and to see 1500+ year old buildings still in use!   And of course there is art – more paintings and sculptures than you could ever imagine.    As one of our guides said, “there are too many paintings in Italy.”

Now, while the art and architecture are impressive… the food is absolutely wonderful.  We did not go hungry and, in fact, put on some weight.
