Here is the latest post in my Feet of the World Series.
My husband and I took a vacation to Italy in September of 2010. He thought it would be a good idea for us to get away at that time because he knew I would be suffering from Empty Nest Syndrome big time. My daughter had left for college toward the end of August. The only thing we didn't realize is that I would be sad, and she would be sad, and it would all be so much more difficult to take because we were so much farther away from each other. Lesson learned.
I've decided to break the three weeks of Italy up into several different posts - I'm not sure if I remembered to take photos of my feet in every town in which we found ourselves, but you can rest assured that I have a million shots of food! This was the BEST pizza I've ever eaten. They bake the crust separately covered in olive oil, and then just add fresh buffalo mozzerella (made the day before. uh huh, yeah.) and cherry tomatoes and fresh basil. Sublime.
Something that I've never done before this trip is photograph my hands - but I am a SUPER tactile person, and the fact that I could walk up to all this old architecture and actually touch it was too much of a temptation for me.
Loved this old building with fresh vegetation growing out of it.
And this last photo is one of my favorite photos ever taken of myself. We were meeting up with some friends, who also happened to be in Rome, and I was talking with Yvonne on the phone trying to figure out how far away from the Spanish Steps they were. She's really funny, hence the laughing. My husband snapped this pic and it never fails to make me really happy to see it.
