Back from Vaca!

Can't event began to describe what a fabulous time I had. Europe is BEAUTIFUL! Somehow managed to visit 7 countries in 14 days and definitely saw more archelogical ruins than you can imagine. Of course I took a billion pictures, but since I can't post them all I picked out a few of my favs. Not all are shoe related (Europe Shoe Post to come) but they are just too pretty not to share:

The view of "Little Venice" in Mykonos, Greece

 One of the 20 decorated Donkey Statues celebrating the Santorini Donkey Republic 2010

Colosseum in Rome, Italy
Doesn't this picture look like a postcard? 

 
View from outside our hotel in Rome. AMAZING. More Europe shoe pics to come this week!

View from the mountains in Nice, France


Leaning Tower of Pisa 

"Love Locks" in Florence
Lovers put their initials on them and lock them to the chain then throw the key in the river to signify their unbreakable love. According to our tour guide, the police cut off all locks on a weekly basis and every week the chain is full again. Crazy!


Beach view from a cliff in Sorrento, Italy  


Caprese Salad with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes from a farm in Sorrento, Italy. The best caprese I've EVER had in my life. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. 


Top of the Byzantine Fortification in Corfu, Greece


Oxymoron! This sign made me giggle. 


 Parthenon in Athens, Greece 
It was probably between 90-100 degrees almost everyday of our vaca + 50-60% humidity. Needless to say there was a lot of sweating, but I did get a pretty good tan!

Here are a few other lovely pictures: 






Thank you everyone for wishing me a great vacation. It was awesome! Back to the real world and regular Pursuit posts.  YAY!
