Sep 22, 2017 - Going home.........

Trains, planes, buses, taxis, ferry and cars .......... It was a LONG journey home - especially for Lee. Every aspect of our respective journies home (we weren't travelling together because we didn't book our return flights together) went as slick as can be - it was just a VERY long journey. We left our Naples apartment at Noon with a taxi taking us to the Station, where we took a Frecciarossa high speed train to Rome (Termini Station). From there - and only 13 minutes later - we were on a Regionale non-stop train to Fiumicino (Rome)...

Italy - Finally!

Sep 21, 2017 - Week Three

Hi so week three is over and we are getting closer and closer to mid terms. this week has gone very interestingly. I have had several long conversations with my professor about things that do not pertain to school or archeology. I did however learn today that I HATE my anthropology class. Once again everyone in that class is so judgmental and quick to voice their opinion before thinking that it might offend the speaker. Did they not learn that if you don't have something nice to say, Keep Your Mouth Shut! Drives me Crazy. I will get through...

Sep 17, 2017 - Week Two

Alright so last week was interesting. This past week I obviously had class but I also had stuff I had to get done. Me and haley had to get our permits turned in so we could stay in Italy legally. I also had some friends I had to catch up with this week, just to make sure they were doing well. I hadn't talked to them at all over the summer so I wanted to make sure. I had to get together with our landlord so we could get some thing worked out, like the broken toilet flusher and other small things. We also needed to give him proof of education...

Sep 13, 2017 - Rome

Rome…also known as “The Eternal City”…or, as I refer to it, “The Eternally Crowded City”… Sharon has again arranged the tour and as we make our way off the ship there is the sign with her name on it waiting to take us on the 1 ½ drive into Rome. We arrive in Rome and somehow our driver manoeuvres his way through the busy streets of Rome, dodging scooters, pedestrians and stop lights…There’s a saying, “All roads lead to Rome” – and it certainly appears that way, as we are not only flabbergasted at the beautiful scenery around us, we’re also...

Sep 5, 2017 - Day 1 and 2

The first day of school went well seeing as I only had one class, my senior capstone. I though while i arrived to the classroom how many new students I saw just on the first day. I only recognized 1 of the hundreds of faces around me. According to my professor we have 95 new students and 22 new graduate students. That is alot of people walking up and down those stairs. It was so crowded that I had to stop in the corner just to get by. Anyway about my first class: there are only three of us in the class, although there should be four but...

Sep 3, 2017 - School TIME

So for those who were following my Pisa trip, I totally forgot to update on my last day there so I can do that now: My last day at Pisa was fast. We stayed till lunch then were set free to do as we pleased. As a group we had lunch and said our good-byes. Before lunch there was a lot of picture taking with people saying good-bye to their skeletons and all. I got a good picture with Augustus and me. I miss seeing his bony face. I still keep in touch with the people at the University and plan to visit them again while in school. August was...

Aug 30, 2017 - Roman Holiday

Our accommodation in Rome is perfect for what we want! We are at Apartamentos Piazza Navona Corner where we have a fully equipped two-bedroom apartment with a tiny kitchen on the top floor of a building on Via di Santa Maria dell'Anima. This is a funky, patio-restaurant lined narrow street that parallels Piazza Navona and our building borders the Piazza. Unfortunately, we don't actually have a window that looks out on either the Piazza or the very active street; we look into a narrow courtyard on the inside but, like I said, it serves very...

Italy - Finally!

Jul 28, 2017 - Day 1

Departing Bangkok after midnight, we arrived 10.5 hours later early that same morning in Rome at Leonardo Da Vinci Airport. The flight was uneventful aboard a new A350-900 which was very comfortable. Very little sleep. The Satellite terminal of Leonardo Da Vinci airport is modern and stylish. Even the toilets had that Italian Designer Chic cool. Stewart was amused by the toilet cubicle doors that had automatic opening doors. After clearing immigration, getting a thumbs up from the officer, a few moments later we had our bags. After changing...

Jul 11, 2017 - My Great Great Grandfather's Storefront

My family found the address of my Great Great Grandfather's store in Rome. He and his family made and sold leather goods such as bound books, belts, picture frames and handbags. Notice the 78B street number above my head. It is now a scarf/clothing store in a very busy and thriving area of Rome. Lastly...we traveled home today and just arrived back to DC. Hate to admit it but we were all craving McDonalds after all that amazing Italian food. I am taking down some french fries now!
