I made it to Rome...

but sadly my bag didnt! It made me wish I knew a few more swear words in Italian. In the meantime, Im praying to the luggage gods that Alitalia shows up with it before I leave for Tuscany tomorrow. Otherwise, looks like Ill be challenged to come up with 20 varieties of the same black cotton dress and leggings outfit. Good thing my plane outfit was somewhat normal :)

So the day got off to a few bumps, but was made up for in beautiful sights and some gelato to ease the soul. I explored mostly the neighborhood of Trastevere, which is where we lived in the illustrious John Cabot Univ. days and took a stroll down the river to the Vatican and St. Peters. Despite the hoards of tourists, the square is just so unbelievably beautiful and calming... maybe a little too much- I may or may not have dozed off sitting on the steps reading. Oops. Darn you jet lag!

Anyway, off to wrap up the day and enjoy a lonnnng sleep. Pics and updates to come!


Pics now included 2 posts later- chronology is lost in blogging...

Ciao y'all

Welcome to my blog. I am hoping the title forebodes both sunny weather and sunny ambiance for my travels in Italy :) This country holds such special memories for me, and I can't wait to not only return to Rome, my old stomping grounds, but to explore Tuscany and beyond.
Check back for travel updates- Miss me!
