Photo of the Week – Colosseum

This photo was taken, as my travel partner and myself set off on a quest to find a refreshing lemon gelato.

Up the hill we went, and as I peeked back behind me to catch a last glimpse of amazing historical architecture, I snapped this photo.

Sigh – take me back!

5 things that make me smile

1. A delicious looking meal that is placed before my starving belly

Lou Malnati's deep dish in Chicago

2. Coffee that’s ready for me to enjoy – especially first thing in the morning

Mmmmm cappuccino in Quebec City

3. My dog (when he is behaving)

Hanging on the beach in Toronto

4. Exploring a new city on foot

Stepping out into the amazing city of Rome

5. Sunny days

Italy then, and now.

Yesterday, I showed you a photo I took when in Florence, Italy in July two years ago.

Please watch the video from BBC to see what it looks like in Italy right now! Yikes, someone seems to be getting our snow!
