    I've only ever been to Venice. And Venice is great. I love Venice. But there is SO much more I'm dying to see.

    And can we talk about that wedding? I didn't even know you could marry there. I'm sort of jealous.

    Also, you're pretty.

    Your photos are amazing! I'm so jealous that you got to go to a wedding at the Vatican. How awesome!! I went a year and a half ago and loved every minute of it. I was amazed that I could just wonder around with nowhere to go and I found amazing sites down every street! If you want to read my blogs about it, they are here:
