Sardengna/Sardinia- Adventures in Cala Ganone  

Posted in , , ,

Our adventure began on the 22 of September 2011 until the 24. We took a night ferry from Civitavecchia to Sardegna, what they didn't tell us was that our so called "ferry" was in fact a luxury cruise ship (to my standards) equipped with all the fixings to keep us entertained for the next 8 hours. We didn't purchase the cabins on our way there, but rather enjoyed deluxe reclining chairs for sleeping. There are no words to express the beauty I saw in Sardegna. The water so clear you could see the bottom of the sea. The people so welcoming and entertaining. The food so particular to this region. And lastly the great friends I shared all of this with. Sardegna is by far one of my favorite places I've been to.

Touring the Vatican City  

Posted in , , ,

16 September 2011

My first day trip to Rome and I decided to head to the Vatican City. I was spiritually moved by the magnitude of this great city-state. I enjoyed touring through the museum, where many great sculptures, paintings, and other art works are housed. Besides the Sistine Chapel, I was fond of the remains of the Hercules statue. Once you see the picture you may understand where I'm coming from. This sculpture is very peculiar and the mystery of its origin is what makes me so drawn to it. I hope you like it.
