On top of the world in Florence

I have had an amazing time in Florence…two days was not enough!  I plan to post more pictures later, but here is the view of the city…pretty amazing, right?  Have you been to Florence before?  Which Italian food was your favorite? (pizza, pasta, gelato…there are many to choose from).  Let me know in the comments 🙂

You can’t go to Brussels without eating Belgian waffles!

Reverse 20 Questions: Manchester

If you have taken a long trip prior to the invention of portable DVD players in vehicles, you have probably played the game 20 questions.  For those of you who are not familiar with the game, it goes like this:  someone thinks of something and then the other people in group must guess what it is.  They can ask 20 “yes or no” type questions to figure out the answer.  This seems like an impossible task, right?  I mean, the person thinking of something really could be thinking of anything in the entire world.

There’s one more part to this game.  The person who is thinking of something, must identify their “thought” as a person, place, or thing (or in another version of the game:  animal, vegetable, or mineral).  So, who’s up for a game of reverse 20 questions?  I’ll post a picture of  a person, place, and thing from my trip, and you can ask the questions (or leave comments) below!

Much like Miss Rumphius, I’ve always wanted to travel the world.  I leave for England today to begin my European vacation (specifics will be disclosed along the way).  I hope you’ll check in to see my pictures, which I hope to be able to post as soon as I can during the trip.  I can’t wait to share this experience with you!
