Warm Winter Wishes

Hello friends… its an other challenge over on Deep Ocean!

For the next couple of weeks you can submit any outdoor or sport related cards.
There is not much to say about my card so I keep it short today and rather leave you with some photos of my trip to Italy – Rome to look at. I misplaced my memory card and found it yesterday pewh!

It was really amazing.. and as you can imagine.. since Barbara is Roman she knew so much about all the buildings we passed with the car – I had a 1:1 sightseeing guide with me all the time. There is so much history and things to see, it would be really worth to go for a week to Rome. The city was really busy all the time. You can not imagine the crow of people at the Fountain of Trevi or the Spanish Steps.. to the point that I gave up trying to go to sit on the Spanish Steps to take a photo. I do not really like crowds after having a bad experience being trapped once in a crowd people.

I hope you liked the photos and of course my card for today Smile

Take care
