A tourist one, of course! April 16-April 24 (Rome, Vatican City, Salerno, Positano, Arezzo, Florence, Siena, Rome) I met Michelley, Memaw, and Angela in Rome.

The first strange feeling I noticed was a sense […]Read more "Meloncholy"
We were in Athens for just under 20 hours. It was so wonderful to see in real life all the rich history, specifically art and architecture I have been learning about in class.
