Yes! I figured Italy would be nice. That is where I would really like to go if I traveled! That would be first on my list, than I'm thinking Spain and Portugal. Maybe Germany for Oktoberfest and Ireland. I heard it was really pretty (very green) and fun there! But I probably won't go ever because of the money and also I'm afraid to fly and way over the ocean like that!

So Besides the United States, I've only been to Mexico!

While I didn't dislike any of the places I've visited so far, I'd have to say that Rome was my least favorite. I enjoyed the Vatican City very much, but in general, I was not incredibly impressed with Rome. The other places I've been were gorgeous, but Rome, not so much. It was more run down than I had imagined. I do have an interest in visiting other cities in Italy someday, though.

I guess that depends on what part of Rome you're thinking of. Some parts will be run down, yes. That will be true for any big city. But I love the Vatican City, the Colesseum and the Pantheon. It has much more to offer than Milan and Naples, despite the fact that they also are very old cities. And after I read historical novels about people in Rome, I like how looking at its run down parts makes me come closer to all the people, who lived in this city hundreds of years ago. Most of them didn't live in big nice houses, but in small apartments in far less attractive parts of the city. Okay, I guess I will stop there. But I had to defend Rome as a place to discover both history and culture.

Like I said, I loved everything about the Vatican City. It was worth the stop in Rome to me. But with Rome in general, I wasn't impressed. I realize every major city has areas that are run down, but not all of them to the extent that Rome was. It was just surprising to me. I did enjoy seeing the Colosseum, especially hanging out at night outside of it when not many people were around. But overall, I don't have a great desire to return.

A word of advice if you travel to France. If you travel to the Mediterranean Sea for a beach day and realize you forgot your bathing suit, don't let that bother you. From my observation it seemed like half the people there forgot their bathing suits too!

Aw, I have so far missed out on Switzerland and Luxembourg. Well, maybe I can remedy that one day.

My niece spent a semester in Italy this year, taking her university classes. She traveled all over the country, and also visited France, Spain, & Ireland as well. She enjoyed everywhere.

She ran into a little trouble when she tried to take a photo inside the Sistine Chapel. Not permitted. When they say "no," they mean it!

I'm surprised she even tried. I've never seen a place so adamant about no photos being taken than the Sistine Chapel. Our tour guide went over the policy several times, stating that someone taking a photo could put the entire group at risk of being kicked out.

Normally she's very level-headed. As she tells it, she tried to discreetly snap one shot of the ceiling. At age 21, she should've known better than to disregard a firm rule. Anyway, she was booted singly (no group affected).

She found a wide disparity in travel prices - for example, a ride in Venice was almost prohibitively expensive, while most travel between Italy and Greece was cheap.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg was as close to Europe as I ever got.

I'd like to go to Poland where my ancestry is from. They all came here in the early 1900's . But I'd like to see if I could find any relatives of mine that are still there. I'm sure there are.

I would probably end up like the Griswold's , from European Vacation movie, where they are in Germany and they go to meet some long lost relatives. They end up going to the wrong house and the people aren't their relatives and Have NO idea who they are and why they are visiting, but they let them in and feed them and everything. And in subtitle it's saying " Who the hell are these people" ! Or something like that. I haven't seen that movie in awhile but it was funny! That is what would happen to me with my luck! LOL!!!
