Italy Day One: Rome

A day to remember and a first for me blogging from my iPhone. 

It began with a special and unexpected moment never to be forgotten. 


The rest of the day fitted well with this week’s photo challenge: scale as Rome is all about scale at every turn.

Our last visit was on the 19th of July 1999 as you can see.  
It’s been far too long. 
Stay tuned 🙂

One of the great memories of our Italian travels is standing in the Sistine Chapel and looking up to the ceiling in total awe at one of the greatest artistic achievements in the world.

Asklepios i

The statue of Asklepios, the god of medicine, from The Vatican Museum in Rome. Round his staff is entwined a serpent, the symbol of medicine to this day.
