(Apologies for slacking off on this whole blogging thing since February. I honestly don't know where March went. I know it was here and I did some stuff, but man, it went by quickly!! And now April has disappeared as well. I love it, because it means I'm closer to summer and getting to see my family and friends. In the meantime, I still have a lot to do over the next 6 weeks!) Anyway...
In February we get a week off. Being an international teacher, I took advantage of this week and went to Italy with teaching friends Danni and Mel. The majority of our time was spent in Rome, with a side trip of a couple of days down to Pompeii and Naples.
As the saying goes, "When in Rome..." and we tried to hold up to our end of the bargain by doing all things 'Roman'. Or, at least the touristy stuff. :-) We also took in as many Italian delicacies as possible. Pastas and gelato in Rome. Fabulous pizza in Naples. And many delicious meals in between.
With that said, I'll do a 'picture post' of some of the highlights of the trip.
