Rome if you want to Rome around the world...


well i visited Rome and there was lots to see the sistine chapel and the colossium..wow. yet it did not have the same feeling as Florence...on my way to Rome i jumped on a train with some people i met at the hostel and headed to Pisa for the day..we wandreed and found the leaning tower so awsome...i really liked the smal winding streets with little cafes and little shops...had some good pasta and headed packtothe train station to wait for my train to Rome and my companions headed back to florence...i was sitting in the train station when a blond girl in a hat walked by me and i took a double take and she stopped and we both pointed at one another..i knew her from hawaii..she was a waitress at Kelly O'neils my favorite irish pub..we chatted for a bit she had left hawaii and was now living in chicago..she was there with a guy i suppose is her boy friend...small world right. we went our own ways..caught my train to Rome...made it to my hostel fine and the next day headed to the Vatican and sat in the sistine chapel in awwww....the next day i curuised the city alone and saw all the sites..that night i met some traveler and we wandered the city the next day together...it was an awsome day..i took like a million pix...then i headed to the train staion for my overnight train to sisiley to see my friend from Hawaii sean...i got to sisiley and got settled in and did nothing but watch tv and checked my email and laundry..it was an awsome day...went to a sicilian restaurant ..food was amazinng...today we are going to check out the sights...exciting..oh by the way..Seans house is so nice i dont know if he will be able to get me out..hahaha

Florence has my heart


i love love love did i say love florence...amazing i could stay here for ever...not that i can afford to but its a wonderful dream...spent all day checking out museums ..getting lost and wandering around the city center..i loved it..i do have a bit of a cold so that is putting a damper on my dinning experience...trust me it is hell..but i will survive...gonna save picking up some gelato till i regain my sense of smell/taste.. other then that i have died and gone to heaven.. my hostel sits out side the city .. about 10 minutes my bus and is atop a hill in an old italian building..i love it tooo much..i hike down to catch the bus down a gravel path passing a small vineyard...yeah i love it here
ps i will post pix as soon i have wifi i got hundreds
