i was going to start off this post by saying, "a few years ago, i went to italy with a great friend of mine"...and then i started counting the years and it was in 2006. how is that possible?? i think i constantly say that it was about 4 years ago, which means that i've been completely lying to myself & others for quite a while now.
anyhow, yes. 7 years ago, i went to glorious italy with my amazing traveling partner, amber.
i keep seeing post after post about italy and it is making me itch to go back there. but i'm one of those people who is a little bit snooty when it comes to traveling (yes, i will admit it), and instead of returning to a place that i've already been, i'd much rather be able to check off a new place...except when it comes to italy.
since i've been reminiscing and refuse to get over my need to return there, i wanted to share my photos from when i went "several" years ago. they are from rome, florence & venice.
(and please keep in mind they were taken with a very small, crappy $40 digital camera. so there's that.)

italy, i will return to you.
you and your wine-filled dinners, teeny tiny cute towns with black sand beaches & potato-topped pizzas, money stealing cab drivers and beautiful buildings.
