Roman Holiday #1

This past weekend I took the train up to Roma, what an awesome city.  Here I am at Trevi Fountain, yes I threw a coin over my left shoulder to insure a return trip.  I went to the Vatican Museum to see the famous works of art, rode the Metro, had gelato, tossed coins, had a sword fight with some gladiators, and of course ate pizza.  Can't wait to go back to see more of the Roman sights and eat more.  Love living in Italy!  Until next time...

New Home for Sticky Boy

Guess I should have started off by showing you where I'm living for the next few years.  I'm currently with a US Marine Corps family who are stationed in Naples, Italy.  We live in a nice town of Licola, where I get to see the Mediterranean Sea out one side of the house
and the local mountains on the other side.
It's a tough life here in Italy, actually we have been having lots of rain and the houses are COLD.  The food is wonderful, the people are nice, the potholes are HUGE, and I'm learning some Italian as I go.  So there you have it, my views are great and I can't wait to see where my next trip takes me.

Sticky Boy in Venice

My Italian/European adventure continues... this stop landed me in the water.  Well not really in the water, ON the water.  Venice is an amazing city that is sinking and floods often.  I really enjoyed taking a gondola ride around the Grand Canal and all the smaller canals.

Venice is known for it's beautiful masks for Carnevale and I was one for my friend Miss M.
  Where will my next adventure take me, I'm not sure.  Travel plans are being worked out, check back soon to find out.
