Porte Venere/ Colorful Italy

Wed, 5 Jul 2017 | By kimswim | Views [694] | Comments [2]

Porto Venere is a lovely little town very close by so we decided to try taking the 30 minute bus ride over the hills. (I wouldn't have to wear a seat-belt and we wouldn't have to worry about parking.) Good choices. The ride was pleasant and there was ... Read more >

Sailing, sailing and yes, there are quiet places on the ship where you can get away from everyone

Sun, 2 Jul 2017 | By kimswim | Views [575]

If  you haven't cruised in a while, it's hard to describe the experience. For me, it is the ultimate vacation. There is no bed to make, no dishes to clean, no cleaning at all and fresh towels and sheets daily! And, my meals are served  to me ... Read more >

Pompeii

Sat, 1 Jul 2017 | By kimswim | Views [466] | Comments [1]

In all of our trips to Italy we somehow always missed Pompeii, so it was on our "must do" list of tours to take. And it certainly did not disappoint! I think what struck us most, was the sheer size.Of course they estimate that some 20,000 people lived ... Read more >

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 | By kimswim | Views [553] | Comments [4]

Of course I look different too after 40 plus years. When I was here many years ago, you could see the Acropolis from anywhere in Athens! It was the beacon on the hill. There was some excavation going on but nothing like the operations ... Read more >

The Power of Impressions – A couple of brief days in the Eternal City - Rome

Mon, 15 May 2017 | By krodin | Views [269]

Rome draws me back time and again. There is no way to learn what this city has to teach and to offer in just a few days as a tourist.  Lifetimes can be spent here and it would still be impossible to uncover the myriad stories, hopes, dreams and ... Read more >

Our final port of call before our cruise finished was on the north western coast of Italy, near the Italian Riviera. Genoa is Italy's largest and busiest port and sits in the shadow of snowy mountain peaks. And, on this day, might I suggest the wind ... Read more >

Rome - The End

Mon, 6 Feb 2017 | By supergg | Views [305]

Wow! Our last full day in Roma. As we headed toward the Vaticano we were among huge crowds. Discovered that at 12 the Pope would be offering his Sunday blessing. We stayed for a short while but, sadly, couldn't understand a word he said. Our original ... Read more >
