A tiny bit of Edinburgh castle as seen from my seat on the train
For six people living in Missouri, USA, I think it's pretty amazing that we've been to so many other countries.Three of my friends have been to Italy and when they found out that a journey to Italy is the next out-of-the-States trip the MOTH and I are considering taking this year, they had stories to share and a lot of "Oh! You Have To Go To" suggestions. Each one sounded great and I thought, two weeks isn't going to be nearly enough time to see them all!
For those of you who have been reading my blog since its February 2013 Grand Opening, you know I have a thing for castles and the ocean. Have I mentioned my attraction to waterfalls and fountains? Scotland and Wales allayed my castle fascination and if we go to Italy, my fountain fascination will hit overload. No complaints!
Fontana di Trevi - the largest baroque fountain in Rome
And then there's the art and architecture and the farm country AND, the cuisine. I need to start racking up extra walking miles right now to counteract the pasta pounds I'll be in danger of putting on!
