Finally! I can post photos on my blog. Here are some interesting ones from our trip to Europe.
This is a photo of the sun setting over the Cinque Terre in Italy. We only stayed here for two nights but both evenings we walked the Via Dell'Amore from Riomaggiore, the town we stayed in, to Manarola, the next town over.
Best meal in Italy. Grocery store food, Siena, Italia. The tomatoes were divine. I've never had a better tasting tomato. So good I took some on the plane with us to Amsterdam. The meal? Bread, two different kinds of cheeses, olive tapenade, tomato, prosciutto (for Val), and wine.
This store was right outside the walls of the Vatican. I love the name of the store. And their array of Superman T-shirts on the right.
The Pantheon is absolutely the most stunning landmark in Rome. When we arrived there was a large protest outside -- as best as we could guess, about the changes to retirement age, lesser benefits, etc. During our 25 days in Europe, we saw at least 5 protests.
Bonsai at the Flower Market in Amsterdam. Donna - this one is for you.
Val's Life and Travel Blog
In April 2010 I left the security of my FT job to travel for eight months -- across the US, Europe, India, and SE Asia. I spent six weeks in Spain in Feb 2013 and experimented with working remotely for an extended period of time. (It worked!) This blog is mostly about my travels and occasional life updates.
