Back from Italy
My Italian sojourn was amazing and memorable but I am very glad to be back in the United States of America for many reasons.
The picture above was taken in Vicenza. It was the first place that I visited in Italy. It is where Camp Ederle is located. Camp Ederle is a US Army Airborne base in Italy.
I arrived at Marco Polo airport in Venice after 18 hours of travel. I was so exhausted that I fell asleep for four hours enroute Italy. I am usually not capable of sleeping while traveling but I guess I am getting old and I need my naps. LOL.
I spent 11 glorious and excitement filled days in Italy. I do not know how the tour industry can advertise those "European tours for 7 days" deal. Venice alone will take about a week to explore!
Traveling to a foreign country is a surefire way of making one appreciative of their own country. I am thankful for the opportunities I have been given to visit foreign lands but I am always ecstatic to be back in the USA. Travels abroad taught me the true meaning of the phrase, "There's no place like home."
