Arrivederci Bella Italia

It's been awhile so thought I would finish up my trip to Italy with a few random, if not favorite, scenes.
 European Highspeed Bullet train....getcha there in a hurry! Like over 200 kph (124 mph)


It was a great way to travel and see the country side....





Even if it did go by too fast to take a good picture!!


This little fella wanted to come home with me but alas...suitcase was already overweight.
I've decided to make it my mission that where ever we go (along the coast that is) I'm finding a light house! Hey my spanish finally came in handy (Spanish and Italian are quite similar)...I tried to ask directions to this light house but the man didn't know the word "light house"....so I improvised and asked for "Luna Casa"? Snap, just like that he knew! Nice to know my bilingual skills are paying off!


"Like a Puppet on a String"
The shops in Italy, particularly Venice, have the most amazing window displays. 


Her joy is contagious!!
...and so I say "Ciao" to

Firenze (Florence)


Roma (Rome)

Sorrento
 Pompeii

and finally my favorite....
VENEZIA (Venice)
Torner√≤ Bella Italia 
(I will return beautiful Italy)!!

Cheri is right you do have some beautiful memories, and the last one is my favorite....get it framed and visit there a little every day.
