Ancient Rome

Here are the first layouts of my trip to Rome. Ancient Rome is so fascinating. I still can't believe that some of those buildings have been there for more than 2500 years. I'm definitely taking Damien to Rome when he is a bit older. It's so much easier to understand history by seeing where it all happened than to just read about in history books.

OHHHH those pics are fantastic, beautiful. I would love to be able to take Migguel to Ireland, Spain and Morroco when he is older - as they were places that I spent my early childhood in and adore. I myself would love the opportunity to go to Italy as Ihave not had the chance to. Thanks for sharing with us ... but more, more, more!!
