Palermo, Sicily…all the way to Venice, Italy! My daughter, Erin, and I carried our heavy backpacks on a ‘magical’ journey up the west coast of Italy. As I peruse the photographs that are still struggling to find their way into on-line albums, I am in awe of the experience still! A vacation and several books worth of memories shared with one of the two most precious girls on the planet.
Il Duomo di Firenze (The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore), Palazzo Vecchio, gelato flavours, leather markets, perfect campsite, cat orphanage, huge booming night time thunder storm, sunsets on the Arno, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, Santa Maria Novella Church, exceptional views, long walks, the Uffizi Gallery and Botticelli…all so rich and wondrous!
