Many of you have asked where I went in Italy and what I did, so here is a quick synopsis. I went with a very good friend whose nephew is on a two year work assignment in Italy working in the city of Treviso in northern Italy, very near Venice. We decided to make the most of a visit to see him so we flew into Rome and stayed for two days, then on to Florence for two days and then to Siena where her nephew met us. We spent that weekend touring Tuscany and then on to his place in Treviso. He took the following week off from work and acted as a superb tour guide driving us all around northern Italy and of course taking us to Venice. It was a fabulous trip and I know that I've seen places in Italy rarely visited by tourists as well as the most popular places.
The above photo was taken from the water bus as we returned from the island of Burano back to the city of Venice. I'd feel mighty alone out there in that tiny boat!
I'll post some other shots as I make my way through the 2500 pictures I managed to download. I'm afraid no one in Italy would ever recognize me with out a camera in front of my face.
