...but I'm thankful for the vacation we got, so I'll smile :)

I think I've been avoiding a final vacation post/wrap up, because that means that Italy is just a memory now...but since we've both been back at work for a week and a half, I guess we're back.

Here are the final few pictures we took on our trip: Italy Day Nine & Ten

We had some trouble returning home because there was a large weather system over France that delayed our plane from Milan to London. When we finally arrived in London 1 1/2 hours late, we had just missed our connecting flight to the states. We were re-routed to Chicago, spent the night there and then continued home to OKC the next morning. All in all, it took us almost 48 hours to get home. Ouch.

Wiser should have the last few videos edited and uploaded soon, but here are three more days:

Thanks for all the traveling prayers, kind words, interest, well wishes and encouragement on this amazing trip. We are totally in love with Italy and can't wait to go back!

Live Action Shots

We have uploaded almost all of the pictures from our trip, so check out the entire collection here: Italy Trip on Flickr (including Days 7 & 8 pictures that haven't been posted yet).

Wiser has been fighting the video-upload battle since we returned from Italy and finally prevailed, so here are videos from our first three days of the trip. I think I'm a little homesick...

Oh, and don't worry, we have lots more ;)

Ciao Italia!


So we finally found a wifi our hotel. All we had to do was ask. Brilliant. Our minds are growing weary, so it's probably a good thing we're headed home in the morning.

We uploaded pics from our first day in Como here: Como - Day One and will add the rest (plus lots more video) when we get home. We LOVE LOVE LOVE's been like living in a postcard. I'm already trying to scheme my way back. I think it should be a yearly trip, who's with me?

Headed to the train station first thing in the morning to catch our train to the airport and then we're homeward bound. See you soon!

Culture out the wazoo.

It's letting up a bit

Not much to post today; we spent most of our time in museums that don't allow cameras. We are so cultured now we can hardly stand it. Wiser posted the pictures to flickr today, so the descriptions are his, too. Including the part about getting in trouble for taking a picture of David, that was so not me. We did get rained on a little bit today but didn't let it dampen our spirits. Gelato makes everything better :)

Here are a couple of pics from today: Italy-Day 5.

And a little surprise: Wiser was able to get some video uploaded so you can get a sneak peek at some of our time in Rome HERE.

Not sure how much internet is available in Lake Como and that's where we're headed tomorrow, so you might not hear from us for a couple of days. So Happy 4th to everyone! Wish we were there watching fireworks with you...we'll just have to be satisfied hanging out on the lake in Italy instead.
