I changed film for these two photos below.
I think I prefer it.

After a 3 hour train ride from Venice to Florence, I checked into my hotel that was along the river.
Checked in and got ready to explore the birthplace of the Renaissance.

Long overdue photos from my Italy trip in March.

Copying the Italians - an espresso in the morning.

Beautiful canals and bridges
Who will win?

THE best gelato I ever had in my life. 

The first day in Venice was nothing short of beauty at every turn. However, as you walk through the city you notice that there are only tourists and, at one point, I felt as though I was on the set of a movie or an amusement park, only at sporadic moments though.
On another note, gelato in Venice...I never understood when people would rave on about 'the best gelato' thinking to myself how different could it be? In Rome, I didn't find it all that spectacular. Luckily we stumbled across a store voted 'the best gelato in Venice'. We went back the very next day because we couldn't stop thinking about!

Bath Architecture

As you can tell from the previous posts on Bath, the architecture here is impressive. 
I read that it was made an UNESCO World Heritage Site mainly because of its architectural history.

Sally Lunn's was recommended everywhere. The buns were perfect with tea.

Incredible history and architecture, truly a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As I travelled around Europe, I was able to experience the influence the Romans had throughout the region back in the day. It's really interesting to learn about society, the people, law, religion, food and customs expanding from 2000 years ago! Wish I had studied modern and ancient history during high school.
