Honey, I am home!

Hello friends! I did mention that I was busy spending time with my family during the Christmas and New Year holiday. Well, I sure did! In fact, we were busy visiting Spain and Italy the past 17 days. It is definitely a trip of a life time. I JUST got back and am recovering from this amazing trip...

These are a few places that we had been to ....
File:Sagrada Familia 01.jpg
 Tour de Pise et Cath├ędrale Notre-Dame de l'Assomption de Pise, Italie (Cathedral and Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy)
(Pisa Tower, Italy) 
Rome
(Colosseum, Rome)
The Sistine Chapel, Rome
(Sistine Chapel, Rome)
 and many many more.....

I can't wait to share the travel photos (3 cameras, over 3500 photos) and happenings with you!! Everything went well-we had good weather, great food...and amazing sights! Like my previous Baltic cruise posts, I will try to divide them into various posts. So stay tuned! Sorry that I have been missing in visiting your blogs and admiring your cards... Hope I catch up soon! We started and ended our cruise in Barcelona, Spain. Today we then took a flight from Barcelona via Paris and then back to Toronto (phew)! Meanwhile, I have lots of laundry to do....a few pounds to lose and fill up a very empty fridge :)

What a fabulous trip! I went to Spain last May for a 12 day tour and had such a great time seeing that beautiful country. I recognized the Guadi church immediately...such a very interesting piece of architecture!

and Italy? My favorite country on this planet!

Happy New Year!
