I've been away from this little space of mine for a short time. For those of you who read my blog regularly, you might well remember that I mentioned a planned holiday to Italy earlier in the year. Well, that holiday has now been and gone and we had an absolutely amazing time.
As immigrants to Israel we are somewhat obligated to visit England, where our families live, as often as we are able. Naturally, because we are not quite yet millionaires, that means that we don't really get to see other places. However, very occasionally we do travel elsewhere and this year was one of those years! Italy it was.
Now, I know that plenty of you do travel on a far more regular basis than I do. I am also aware that I am not the first person to travel to Italy. Therefore I am going to give you just a taste of our trip and not my usual background history to it all! And believe me, it was very hard to whittle down that 'taste' to a few photos that I feel sum up our first stop, Rome. Let's just say I was reaching the 1,000 photos mark by the end of our trip!
So, enjoy our visit to Rome and our day trip from Rome to Pompeii. From top to bottom: the Coliseum, some tasty gelati, Pompeii, the Vatican Museums, the Ponte Sant' Angelo, the Pantheon, watching street artists near the Trevi Fountain, and finally, the stalls at the Tiber River festival taken from the Ponte Sisto.
