italy photos

After another few weeks work following my return from Spain I was once again keen to see some more of Europe.  As luck would have it, a mate from Brissy, Rafe, was randomly flying into Rome on the same day I'd picked, so for the first time I had a travelling companion. We had a ball as we soaked up the Italian sun, culture and buckets of gelato!  The sheer beauty of the cities and towns we visited is embedded in my consciousness, and the contagious enthusiasm that Italians hold for their culture went a long way towards dragging me towards an appreciation of the finer things in life; art, architecture, fashion and gelato!!! mmmm gelato!!
