Day One: Roma

Posted on Thursday, October 13th, 2005

Dave!My favorite place on earth is Edinburgh, Scotland. Tying for a close second would be a dozen different places in Italy, the city of Rome included.

And so here I am in the Eternal City, almost five years after my first visit during the Catholic Church's Holy Year of 2000. My love for Roma has not diminished, and I am just as excited over being here now as I was then. There are sights here to overwhelm the senses of even the most jaded traveler...


Now I want a gelato.

    I’m new to your blog. You are so right about everything overwhelming the senses! I visited Italy/Austria/Germany three years ago (my first trip out of the states) the sights, sounds, smells… so overwhelming I didn’t know where to start! I miss Italy the most..I hope to go back soon, and maybe this time take hubby along! Have a great trip!

    I just listened to some Dean-o in your trip’s honor! Not too surprising, I’m green with envy, yet again.

    Rome = Fantastic city.

  7. Mmm, gelato is good here… I can only imagine it more so in its country of origin.

    Wow, your trip to Rome sounds so exciting….and all I get to do is stay at home and watch the Travel Channel on my Cable TV. If it wasn’t for my good-looks and wealth, I would say “life” is not fair! LOL Enjoy your vacation…..
