Joined a new raiding guild in wow, and they raid hard, Fri, Sat, Sun, and Mon nights. But the times are good, they start about 6:300 and end by 10:00 my time. But it has not left allot of time to edit photos.

But I give you the smart Police...

Vatican and the rocks

This morning we did a tour of the vatican museum. We where supposed to see st. Peters cathedral, but the pope was washing some feet :)

So we didn't get to go in :(

In the after noon we did a fountains and squares walk. This was nice and we saw a lot of things.

Then afterwards chris and kenna and I went and saw the coliseum, big pile of old rocks :)

Also looked a bit at the form and walked to the monument that. Celebrates the unification of italy.

Fly home tomorrow and will start getting photos up and post better trip reports

Stairs, oh god the stairs!

Aka day 2

Ee started out with a tour of the Moreno glass works. This is were the famous italy glass is hand made. We saw a glass master make the glass by hand. It was hot!

Next we went to st. Marco square and did a tour of the Doge palace.

The would not allow photo on the inside :(

Next up was a gondola ride after lunch. I was with monica, Lori, and Tiffany. It was a nice hour ride with a bottle of bubbly wine.

Next I linked up with jerry, Mckennan and kenna's mom. had breakfast with them.

So after the ride we wandered. Saw many neat shops and I ended up bribing mckenna with chocolate to get her the rest of the way back to the hotel.

So now I am eating a nice penne and chicken dinner at Ginos

Day -1 and 1, hmm maybe it should be day zero

Well spent the day wandering around went back to the plaza of Marco Polo. and paid to go up the tower. also paid to go up the tower and have some nice pictures of the city from on high.

then wandered back taking numerous wrong turns. a street should not be that gap between two walls that is narrower than I am :(

saw a couple of churches, but they don't let photos.

anyway going to sit around for the after noon and read by the canal. got a not from the tour guide that we will meet at 6:00 pm for our orientation session.

Ok enough of the cryptic posts

I booked a week in italy :)

I have a night here in venice before the tour gets here, they are fly from new york so while is was walking around they are flying here.

So all told I will have 3 nights in venice.
Then I think we take a bus to pizza.

Stop for lunch I think. Then on to florence for two nights.

Then we bus down to rome for two nights and then I fly home.

Limited to my BB so I won't get comments unless you email me directly.

So far I have walked a ways to see the Piazza s. Marco.

It was getting dark by the time I got there and was full dark on the walk back. It is hard finding you way through streets that I can almost touch both sides. Only had to ask directions 3 times and got off course once.

Right now having dinner in the hotel and there is a live piano player that is fairly good.

Ta from Italy :)


Well this is interesting, this plane went to Venice, Italy

I think I will look around a bit :)


Hmm this plane went to Frankfurt, Germany. I wonder where this plane goes?


Hmm this bus went to the airport, wonder where this plane goes.

The urge to see things...
The feet are restless...
The heart wants some place warm ...
The mind agrees...

Hmm wonder where that bus goes...
