Bernini and more

 Forget cramped airlines, crappy airline food, and jet lag.  I traveled to Italy with a good writer friend, Ann Summerville, and we hit the streets of Rome on Saturday September 20th, running.  You can't go wrong in the Piazza Navona. It is dramatic, gleaming, and a dream come true.

 Bernini sculptures have to be seen in person. Pictures do not do them justice. The detail, the creativity, the story, the characters, the size - I was in awe.

So many statues, so little time.  This was just day one, hour one and it got better and better. My eyes are full of beauty - Italy itself, the people, the food, the art, the history. I shall share the adventure until you scream "No more!"


  1. Wow.Super pictures! I can't wait to see... and hear... more. I hope you had a fantabulous time. (Talk about an awesome detour!)

  2. I'm so happy for you that you got to see this in person.

  3. Fantastic photos! So pretty there!

  4. Joanne, I am BREATHLESS... your photos are STUNNING...
    I haven't been to Rome since the late 80's and it is still GORGEOUS. I can't wait to return....SIGH. Someday.

  5. I agree with Michael! Your photos make me want to take the next flight back to Italy! Glad you had a wonderful time, Joanne!
