Trains going green!

Nice photo!

This picture was taken in Rivne, Ukraine – wouldn’t that be so neat to see as you are riding the train to work every day?

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!

Hmm…my vote?

Switzerland!

I would love to go there to see my friend who moved and is teaching there. Then I could also quickly make a detour to one of my favorite places – Italy, then while I am at it, maybe check out Germany, oh hey…then Belgium, and Paris since it is so darn close…..
