Bella Italia: A BIG Gallery

The spiral staircase leaving the Vatican Museum, Vatican City















May 2012 was Wendy's and my 10th wedding anniversary. For the 10 years of our marriage, and two years before, Wendy had been telling me that she REALLY WANTS TO GO TO ITALY, so finally, we went.

We spent 5 days in Florence, 7 days in some Tuscan hill towns (Lucca and Pienza), and then 5 days in Rome. Click on the LARGE image above to go to the full gallery, or the link can be found under the Main Gallery>Topside Travel menu items at the top of the page.

Lisbon and Amsterdam, Small Gallery

In mid- to late March we travelled to Lisbon, Portugal for a conference, then stopped over for a couple of days in Amsterdam on the way home, giving us a chance to visit the Keukenhof garden. It was very early in the season, after a long and odd winter, so the garden was not at its peak. This was a difficult trip to balance photographic desires against the reality of attending conferences, minding the small one and dragging stuff all over Europe.

The gallery is embedded below, and also up in the Main Gallery section under Topside Travel.
