Time to Say Goodbye – Day 13

Time to Say Goodbye – Day 13

And then we were finished.  We had a morning in Paris and then quickly scurried to the airport.  We were running a tad behind because of the train schedules, some ticket issues and some last-minute sight-seeing, but we knew we’d still make it with a little time to spare.  (Turns out, you really need that […]

Arrivederci – Day 11

Arrivederci – Day 11

And then we said goodbye to Italia.  *Sniff*  After we woke up in the morning, we went to church with Erica.  I met another friend that I had known from the old Italian branch (Gioia Durrazzani) and attended my old military branch.  Both branches are now wards and are much bigger than I remembered.  They’re […]

Venezia – Day 9

And now we come full-circle.  I went to Venezia the day I left the country.  It was the last place I was before I took off.  It sure was beautiful to see it again.  Thank goodness for a little bit of rain that day, because it had finally cooled off just a little bit.  We […]

Verona – Day 7

Verona – Day 7

Verona ended up being one of our favorite big cities.  It was beautiful with everything closely located to each other.  It’s also an incredibly romantic city.  Our host was very kind and even let us call during the day if we got lost.  She also recommended an amazing gelateria to us that we ended up […]

Firenze (Florence) – Day 6

Firenze (Florence) – Day 6

[…]
