Naples

Naples

SECOND PART OF THE POST CONTAINS SOME ROMAN EROTIC ART WORKS. POSSIBLY Not Safe For Work. We drove into Naples, parked in the port, and walked a couple kilometers to the Naples National Archaeological Museum. Naples is over 2,800 years old and constantly lives in the shadow and threat of the volcano. Naples itself is [...]

Sicily

Sicily

From Naples we took a ferry to Palermo, Sicily. Driving in both Naples and Palermo is ridiculous. Its the worst driving we have experienced outside of Greece. Sometimes when there are no lights or its a 4 way stop you just have to GO and hope someone lets you in/stops in time. – add in [...]

In the shadow of Vesuvius

We stayed in the hills overlooking the bay of Naples in a town called Sorrento. That was the base for exploring the area including the ruins of ancient Pompeii. Along with Herculaneum, its sister city, Pompeii was destroyed, and completely buried, during a long catastrophic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius spanning two days in [...]

Tuscan hills and Montepulciano

Bologna – gritty city of covered streets

Arcades, or covered walkways are present on many streets in the city center, making it possible to walk for many kilometers sheltered from rain. In the evening when the stores shutter, [...]

Funny, cool, prikol photos

Funny, cool, prikol photos

Here are a couple funny, cool, prikol type photos that finish up Venice. There is some mannequin nudity so possibly not safe for work. This first one is for the sausage dog lovers, it was running around a piazza at night waiting for the owner drinking in a bar.

Cruising the canals to 30

Cruising the canals to 30

The second day was spent exploring more of the little streets and cruising the canals on the water taxi. Although it is the venice biennial and the Peggy Guggenheim modern art collection beckoned, the weather was just too nice and the colors too magical to spent time inside. Celebrated my 30th birthday in a restaurant [...]
