Roaming Around Rome

It has been swirling around in my head for several days of how to write and describe what I am thinking! As our time here in Rome continues, there is so much that I want to write about but so much of it is feelings rather than experiences! Maybe if I begin with a few … Continue reading

Princess at the Piazza

We did it!!! We broke away from pasta tonight and found a little Chinese restaurant around the corner which we walked to for sweet & sour chicken! I had told Randy this morning that I just could not look another pizza or pasta noodle in the face! Wasn’t it just yesterday that we sat in … Continue reading

Italian Inventions

Waking up each morning here in Florence has opened our eyes to so many new things! We are able to look … Continue reading

Florence Fiascos

Well, to say yesterday was an adventure is saying that the Pope is Catholic (sorry but since we are in Italy i had to use that saying)! We arrive at the train station in Venice and took the 4:30 train back to Florence. We had already decided that when we arrived back here, we would … Continue reading

Italian Wannabes

We, along with thousands of people who have passed thru here, dream of living here or at least want to look Italian! With my milk of magnesia lilly white skin I dont stand a chance. Dressing all in black or gray trying to fit in as we walk along the streets of Florence, we still … Continue reading

Easter In Italy

Oh we had so many plans! Plans that included us worshipping with other Italian believers in a church where many different people from so many different places would be joined together! I had even imagined that hopefully someone from church might invite us over for an Italian Traditional Easter meal! I know, i get carried … Continue reading
