I cannot tell you how many times I've wanted to take this silly photograph! There are about 50 other snaps of Soldier Boy and myself holding up and knocking down the Leaning Tower of Pisa, but I figured I'd spare you and only post a couple of them here!
Anywho… our Spring break started out in Pisa! It's a super crumbly city (and really… Italy is the only country I've ever visited where buildings crumble quite so elegantly, although I think that Slovakia is a close second) and was a bit scary with lots of street vendors up in our faces, but I really enjoyed seeing the Leaning Tower. It's just another one of those landmarks that you know about growing up and I, at least, never thought I'd actually see in person, but am happy to check it off the list!
Since the tower is just about all we could find to do in Pisa, we hopped in the car and zoomed over to Cinque Terre, which we were close to on our great European Road trip last summer, but we didn't make it all the way over.
I tell ya… the sea is like an automatic recharge button for my soul. I don't need to go into it, but just to sit and stare at it is enough to refresh my mind. Also… stray cats make me happy… and yes… I did pick up the one in the photo below, much to Soldier Boy's dismay.
… and so… now I shall say "arrivederci" until next time!
