Virtual Vacation to Rome

I have been soo busy at work...like Mama B, I need a vacation.  At last due to my schedule, I just can't.  So I am browsing through all my vacation photos remembering how fun it was exploring and absorbing new surroundings, culture, and people.   One of my favorite places to visit is Italy.  I visited Italy when I graduated from college, doing the whole Europe tour.  It's an experience I will never forget and highly recommend to anyone.

I love Italy so much that I decided to visit again but this time bringing my husband who has never been there.  I was his tour guide and he loved it!  He loves history, eating yummy food, learning about new cultures...so it was a sure win win!
