Italy 2011

For all those 2 people viewing our blog, if you were wondering, I made these cute changes myself. I went to thecutestblogontheblock and picked this one out. I spent a good amount of time editing it so it didn't have too many fluffy things. It will look sweeter as I continue to edit it. Anyways, on to things bigger and more foreign.

It all started back in February....but I don't want to tell the whole story. There is way way too much to share in one blog post. So I am just gonna give you the cherry's on the tops. I'll try to keep it to one picture per city...ish... for more pics, see my facebook

We left Saturday, Aug 6th on our large journey. We had a read eye from SLC to NYC. We saved $400 if we chose the flight that had a 10 hour we did it. Ness' step dad gave us SkyLounge which is basically a place for free food, drinks, and a place to sleep.

Cute Nezz-n

Then it was off to Rome! Everything was so much bigger and cooler than we initially thought.

Fountain di Trevi
Why hello there Pope Benedict the 16
My Name is Mazimus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, Loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.

Next stop...Florence!

This was once of our top cities we went to. It was like, Italy, mixed with a Swiss village. It was cool to see Michelangelo's touch all over the town. Top places in Florence: The Duomo, Piazzale Michelangelo, and the stinkin' David.

Main Plaza
Wheelin' and Dealin'. Isn't she cute?
Top of the Duomo. Scariest climb ever
Piazzale Michelangelo; The city of Florence

Next stop! Manarola! (Our favorite stop)

Manarola is part of the Cinque Terre (Five Lands) They are coastal cities that are probably the most amazing things ever. When we go back to Europe, this is once place we are stopping at again. It is the smallest of the five, right on the coast. This is what true love looks like.

Night in Manarola. If you can make the picture big, follow the boat ramp up to the town, and we are the first pink house. Right on the harbor.

Vernazza Next. #4 of the 5 in the Cinque Terre

This one was boppin more than Manarola

Next stop, Verona!

We got tickets to the Opera in the Arena to see Aida. It was a cute little town, but we only had one day there so we couldn't explore much. Bum

Where the Opera was

Next stop...Venice!

Next stop Paris! ( this is getting too long, wrapping it up)

Then Brussels for the flight outta there!

That was our trip!! pretty fun. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has even the inkling to go. Alright, I'm stinkin pooped of blogging. Peach out blog-world

You won't see us for the next two weeks (not that you see us much now. We stink at blogging). We are off to Rome, Siena, Florence, the Cinque Terre, Venice, Paris and Brussels. Have a great last couple weeks of summer, wish us luck, and check back in a few weeks to hear the tale of our journey through Europe. It will be epic.
