... last holiday in Europe. She is big, massive …oh we should clarify; we are talking about the ship. It would be on a par with the “Ventura” but it does have a water park on very top deck.

Volterra is really not known for anything but being in Tuscany, being a walled-in hill town, having a bunch of Etruscan history, and my favorite, being a Rick Steves favorite (and unfortunately for being in the Twilight movies in some way.) Our start there was a little rocky thanks to my stomach – I haven’t had issues with curvy roads since I was a kid, but man, they got me today! I wandered ...
