I'm back from Bologna, Italy and my first European vacation. It was wonderful and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a new adventure. My husband was my tour guide and he was invaluable at getting us around the airports and train stations. We visited Florence and went to the Uffizi, Venice and the beautiful Saint Marks Cathedral and Ravenna to tour the churches filled with amazing mosaics. Italy is certainly the center of art and architecture.
It is wonderful to be home today with the rest of the summer ahead of me. The weather in Italy was HOT, HOT, HOT. It is the same here in the midwest with daily highs in the 90's. Might as well enjoy it!
