    Our favorite vacation area has been Italy, specifically, Rome, Florence and Lucca.   We've been to Italy twice and plan to go back again.

    I loved Rome for its history.  I always was fascinated with the Roman Empire.  Visiting the Coliseum was a must.  Just walking around inside give me the chills.  Then outside, walking the old Forums brought so many images to my mind.  Visiting the Pantheon was amazing.  Just looking at those massive doors amazed me as how they were able to build such marvels centuries ago.   Walking in the piazza navona was another one of my favorites.  

    In Florence, just the beauty of the paintings and sculptures was breathtaking.  I am not sure how I did it, but I was able  to climb up the 300+ stairs in the Duomo getting to the top and taking in all the sites.

    Lucca , the walled city was another must for us.  My son was an instructor at a Italian cooking school close to Massarosa, Toscana Saporita Cooking school.  We stayed there for two days and I got a chance to watch them make olive oil the old fashion way with oxen and turning wheels.

    On our most recent trip, we did the Naples area  Seeing Pompeii was about as breathtaking as the Coliseum.
    We took a trip into the mountains and visited the town of Lauro.  In Italy, when you talked about the town you came from, you put a Di in front of it.  So, for me, it was DiLauro.  We went to the town hall and were able to find records of some of my old family.  Very interesting

    We will be heading back some day

    Since I really don't like to fly, our vacations are places we can drive or ride the motorcycle to. 
    My favorite trip, so far, was going to Key West, Florida. 
    But, of course, when you travel by motorcycle, the vacation starts the minute you leave the driveway! And the, the whole trip is an adventure! 
    My husband really wants to go on a cruise, but I'm not a big fan of boats.
