Lets talk about stairs

Last day in Firenze Up up and away So, if you've been tracking with me, you can probably see I've been going pretty non stop. I understand now the need for the siesta. So I could slow down, but that would be no fun. So lets ambitiously climb through my day. DUOMO This is the artsy angle shot. Don't worry, there will be another later. Notice thoug...

A long day, a quick post

Two galleries, a touch pass with the Duomo, shopping When I say I average at 10 miles a day on foot, I'm not kidding. Sammi's ankle can be the true marker if you don't believe me. After today, it was melon sized. We walked back and forth and through and up and over Florence today, soaking it all in before Sammi has to head back to the state's. Sin...

Wine country? Not for Kit, but the infinite land of good espresso Good Morning Florence! The first massive difference was actually last night finding the hotel in almost complete silence, I guess Rome is also good at stealing all the noise. And trash. The streets are clean, we are not in fact the only ones here as we come to realize on our way to...

Blast from the past

I'm going to be honest I really didn't put Ancient Rome up on any kind of pedestal. My dad (mostly probably my dad) and I made a wax figurine of the Colosseum in the 7th grade, really grade A material stuff. That is about where my true interest in Rome has held its roots, a wax figurine and of course the one scene in the Epcot ball where Rome burns...

The Heart of Rome

Cobblestones and thin-souled shoes are a match made in heaven, its time for another 10 mile plus day So I invite you to enjoy this day with me visually as there was a lot for the seeing and less for the talking. If you have any questions, feel free to comment and I'll explain away. Hopefully the visual tour will be less tiring but just as rewarding...

Holy Holy Holy how is this real

Kit goes to the Vatican Rome is huge, there is life everywhere. Since today is a holy day of sorts, let's start with a confession. I am a tourist. Much of me stumbling around Europe has been in the good graces of Rick Steve's Italy book, google maps, and trip advisor. Today however, my love and adoration goes out to a man named Mario. Being the co...

Wake me up before you go go

Hop, skip, and a jump ROME Woke up for a 6:00 flight over to CIA airport in Rome, which is about the size of the McDonalds in Orlando's I-Drive. Now of course, I read about transportation, I googled mapped it, took pictures, did all the things I promise you but there is nothing like a quite like trying to figure out public transport with a language...

10 + Miles, One Day, GO! So this day was so full of walking, hopping Metro's, and navigating language barriers, that we are gonna tell the story in the language of thousand word photo style. Fisherman's Bastion Growing up on Disney, it still baffles me that castles can be real things and this was just pretty garnishing to the Matthias Church. I c...

It's a three shot kinda day

JO REGGELT! It's almost 10 am here to my internal 5 am and espresso is the name of the game today. To a great deal of the folks back home, I promised a food blog and there's no time like the present when your hotel feeds you. They had a bit of everything, from fruit to liver paste (I'll get more adventurous I swear) Important: Cheese yes wow a...
