The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

A wonderful vacation I took with my parents around 1974. They took me out of college
for a few weeks. The trip started in Nice, France. We went along the coast into Italy
and traveled all through Italy. We were with a group and a guide and stopped at many
historic locations including Pompei, The Coliseum and Vatican City in Rome including
the Sistine Chapel. Florence to see The David and the amazing museums. Milan, to
visit my brother and sister-in-law, (where I stopped a thief from taking my Dad's wallet). Pisa and the leaning tower. Venice. The Isle of Capri, and so much more. It was amazing.

Every once in awhile I try to relive those moments, they were life-changing and life-affirming.

Thanks for sharing my memories. :)

I've never been outside the country. A trip like that must have been stupendous! Chuckled at "They took me out of college
for a few weeks." Like a parent pulling a kid out of school for a two-day trip to Disneyland. I'm glad you have these sweet memories, Kevin, especially of your mom.

Your parents rock (still), Kevin. I'm hoping to get to see those places myself soon. Having the shared experience is a magical soothing gift mostly because of the *shared* part.
*hug*

@Ruth, thanks! I recommend it highly! It's amazing how much we saw in a few weeks. Don't wait! xo Kevin

@NJ, It was stupendous! There is nothing like experiencing new places. I hope you get to go someday. Thank you for your kind words. :)

@Blanch, thank you sweet friend. Yes, my parents do rock. I wish I had appreciated them more, but I think they know how I feel. Magical shared experiences, yes. ((((hugs))))
