I'm Back

Just got back last night from what was probably the most wonderful week of my life - spring break choir tour in Italy.  It was a whirlwind trip for sure, 9 days gone, 5 concerts/worship services, 6 cities, and innumerable sites visited, but I loved almost every minute of it.  Italy is definitely my favourite of the foreign countries I've visited.  I didn't want to leave and I can't wait to go back!

I hope to post more in-depth about the trip over the next few days - I took over 2,000 photographs and several videos, and I journalled at length so that I could share with my family and friends - but for now, because I'm tired and because my body still thinks it's almost 5 in the morning, instead of not quite 11 at night, I'll just hang up a few of my favourite photos and leave it at that.  (A parting note - none of my photos are edited in any way.  This is just how things really look!)

The Colosseum, Rome.

A random dead-end street, with potted plants and someone's washing hanging out a window.

The Pantheon at dusk.

Inside of the Duomo, Florence.

View of Florence from the bell tower of the Duomo.

Farm country, northern Italy.

Venice - city of water and song.

  1. I'm so glad you got to go on this trip! From what I've gathered between here and facebook it sounds like you had a wonderful time. I envy you getting to see Venice. It's kind of my new life goal to get there for Carnival. I'll let you know when I finally go and see if you want to tag along if you like. :)

  2. It was the most wonderful week :) Venice was lovely (though I think Rome might've been my favourite), but I agree it would be fun to go during Carnival! We'll have to go someday :-)
