My World Tuesday Season # 2 Episode # 26

This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren,  Sylvia and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive.

These are some photos of my Europe trip. We landed in Milan and took a bus to Verona. You must visit Juliet's balcony while there. Italy is amazing.
A trip is not complete without seeing a castle and its bridge. This is made more special with the fly fisherman.
We then headed for Venice and what a ferry trip to Lido as the Sun was setting.

It was night when we settled at Lido and this marvelous structure was lit.
A trip to Venice must include seeing the Rialto Bridge and the gondolas.
There is so much to see I will have to share more later.

I have been to Europe 3 times -- once in the 70s and twice in the 80s. I saw Verona and Venice in the 70s. I would love to return to Europe one day. I have a feeling that your photographs are going to make that desire even stronger! Very nice photographs of both Verona and Venice.
