Last Glance at Italy

One of the struggles I had with this blog in Italy was that the blogger app on the iPad wouldn't load more than two photos. Since I had originally planned to just post the best pictures of the day once I ran out of pre-written posts, this was a problem.

It also meant that I couldn't share some of my favorite photos. So I thought I would post the ones I would have shared with you already if I could have. I've picked one from each of the cities.

Venice from the island of Giudecca
Of all the places we visited, I loved Venice the best. But I don't know what to do about that, because the fact that so many of us love Venice is what is ruining Venice. It's a conundrum!

The dome of Florence's Duomo from the Uffizi patio
Florence was the most compact and walkable city of the three. The Duomo is huge and a great landmark, as it's visible from almost everywhere. The Uffizi had so much amazing art, it was overwhelming. If I had it to do over again, I'd eat the overpriced food on the patio and once refreshed, dive back into the museum for a second go.

Hanging out the laundry in Rome
A city as big as Rome probably has a higher percentage of everyday residents than tourists. And what's more everyday than hanging your laundry out on the line to dry? This was taken in the inner courtyard of the apartment we rented through airbnb.

We did as the Romans did, although we hung our laundry on the roof, as we didn't have windows to the courtyard.

I'm thinking about printing these photos out and putting them on the wall in some artistic arrangement as a souvenir of our Italian adventure.


  1. I love these photos - you should definitely frame them!

  2. Wow - that laundry one is really gorgeous!!
