Where I stayed

Flag of Italy  , Lazio,
Wednesday, April 21, 2010

I met up with a fellow Canadian from Vernon BC named Simon. We got stuck up in the volcano ash cloud. All the trains and bus prices got jacked up. We took a 20 hour ferry ride to Rome for cheap, and just arrived now. Will explain more later.

Hi Steven -
your blog is a great idea - we can all follow your adventure from home - armchair travel at its most exciting. Now that you are in Rome do you have plans for visiting Tuscany? I am just reading "Under the Tuscan Sun" - it's about a 200 year old farmhouse, Casa Bramasole, restored by local craftsman for travel author France Mayes. The book describes much about the beauty and simplicity of life in Italy.
Congratulations on your once in a lifetime adventure.
Thanks for sharing the lovely photos - I recognize many of the places in London.

Hey Steven glad to hear you met up with someone your own age to travel with, that makes life and traveling more fun! Great pictures of Spain too, you must have bought a new camera card by now with all the shots you've posted.... if you go to Ibiza- make sure to bring your dancing shoes! If you go to Monte Carlo I think you're old enough to go to the casinos even if it is just to take pictures.... or you should and then try to find Bridget Bardot's favorite stretch of coastline in Saint Tropez.... HAVE FUN!
