I'm back!!!

Bellissimo Italy

A warm hello to you all, I have returned to blog land. My family and I have been in Italy these last few weeks and have just returned. Italy truly is one of the most beautiful places in the world. We travelled from Rome, Orvieto, Tuscany region, Florence, Pisa, Venice, Assisi, Sorrento, Naples, Island of Capri, Burano Island, Possitano, Pompeii and back to Rome.
We went on a guided tour and met some lovely people of all ages. Lino was our tour guide and he was truly an amazing person, we learnt so much history about Italy. Here are some pics......
Cathedral in Florence
 Enchanting Pompeii

 I just had to touch the walls of Pompeii
 Scenery from our hotel window
 On the streets of Venice
 On the Bridge of Straw.
 The view from the top of Tower of Pisa
Look how beautiful
 The bell on the top of Tower of Pisa
The oldest ancient artifact I found in Italy!! lol...I took him home.

I have so many more photo's but I won't bombard you with them all. We enjoyed our trip away and it is something I hold dear to me. Of all the places in the world, Italy was the one place I have always wanted to see. How special to share it with those closest to you. On our return from holidays I found 2 parcels waiting for me.... a stack of felt from lovely Fiona. Thanks girl, I will make good use out of this.

Can’t wait to use these! 
I won a giveaway at Cath's place, many thanks Cath, I will enjoy stitching this little beauty for the next FNwF's.
                   I love it
I best get going now to finish all this washing that has come home with us. I will enjoy catching up with everyone in the coming days.
Cheers, Anita.

WM and I visited Europe on a whirlwind tour in 1983 and Italy was my favourite place of all! So much so that I started learning Italian a few years later! (but gave it up as DD grew and needed more attention). Thanks for sharing your photos. I'm glad you bought that "ancient" souvenir home with you!! LOL

PS I'm in WA from 25th May to 9 June. Are you near Perth or the south west?
