Ciao Everyone,

We are now in Venice! Sorry that we haven't been on in a while. We are finishing up our trip here before we head home on Sunday. Yesterday and the day before we were in Cieque Terre, at Vernazza. We did some very extreme hiking along the coast, and spent some time listening to the Mediterainian.

Venice will be more relaxing in the next few day. We are moving to a hotel from a hostel tomorrow. Tonight we are going out and taking some night pictures of Venice. I know you all will look forward to seeing them.

God Bless and Ciao,

We have moved on to Florence today. Siena was a great little town. Very historic andmany great views. We are planning on posting pictures if we can otherwise look forward to our pictures when we get back. We will just do some photo blogs then. While at Siena we had a great tour of wine country and the history of the area. Roberto was very cool! We found a place to eat in on our tour that was the best meal we had all trip. Then the next day we had a meal in Siena that was more like TV dinner pasta.

Today we went to a museum that had some sculpters from Michaelangelo and Donatello. They good! Tomorrow we see Michaelangelos David, and some other museums. On Monday we will be on to some church tours.

God Bless and Ciao,

We are enjoying or time in Rome. We got to Rome on Monday and we will be leaving tomorrow at 5:30am. During our time in Rome, we went to the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Forum, the Borgeses Museum, and a few other places. We will try to post some pictures in the future. We hope to share them with you if when we get home. While at the Vatican the Pope was speaking, which was cool!

Tomorrow we will be going on our Tuscani wine tour in Siena. Essie got her bagages just fine, which was a relief. Well, we will see you later.

Ciao from Rome,

P.S. We hope everthing is fine in Minnesota!

Hi Everyone,

Friday- Hey we had an adventure, again! Our flight from Chicago to Madrid was last therefore we missed our flight to Rome. We caught a later flight to Rome. By the time we went to get our bags in Rome, Essies bag wasnt there, along with 50 other people that didnt get their bags. We are picking it up on Monday.

Saturday- We took some trains to Naples, and it was very interesting and hard to find the right street to get to our hostel. We ended up finding it at 10:30pm. Man were we tired. There are so many in Napels. We heard today that it is over 2 million.

Today- We wen to Pompei and Mt. Vesuvius. It was great to see those. Especially to walk up to the top of the Volcano crater, and look in. We took many awesome pictures we might share with you all later. Well time to go to bed.

Nick and Essie
