A little update

Hello all! Here I am at a hotel in Rome. In the past few days we have seen the Colisseum, the Roman Forum, The Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, St. Francis Basilica in Assisi, il Duomo in Florence, Michelangelo's David at the Accademia, the Vatican, St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel, Ponte many things. We've also taken part in gladiator training, a fresco workshop, cooking school (and a competition that my team won!), and a painting class.

Tomorrow we're heading to Pompeii and Sorrento. These are all places I've been before (and you've probably seen in my previous posts) but, in my opinion, the piece de resistance of the trip will be our last day when we go to the Isle of Capri. I'm so looking forward to that!

It's been a great trip so far. The kids have been awesome! Our tour director is a sweetheart and so much fun. We had a couple of mishaps along the way - one girl got awful blisters and had to be taken to the doctor; one chaperone had his wallet lifted; a hotel room was broken into and some items were stolen. Those events were difficult, but everyone has been so positive and we have enjoyed ourselves so much.

Two more days and then we come home. Do I need to tell you I'm not ready to return to reality?

I will post pictures when I'm back in Canada.

Ciao for now!

I can't wait to hear more Rachel! Those are all places I'm hoping to see someday so anything you have to offer is very welcome. I hope you have lots of photos -- especially of the cooking competition LOL!

Sorry about the mishaps but glad they aren't spoiling the trip...will anxiously await your photos as that is the closest I'll ever get to those places!

Looking forward to reading more and seeing the pics when you get back, Rachel. The Isle of Capri sounds wonderful!

It does put a little damper on things when bad things happen but it is good that the positive is out weighing the bad...enjoy the rest of your trip.
