Holiday instalment #12 - The Final Day...

Turley's tour of England and Europe 2010 was coming to an end..... our last day in Rome was spent re-visiting some of our favourite spots.... the Spanish Steps, the Trevi fountain and of course Pepy's Bar and Cafe - on the corner of the Piazza Barberini ... a great spot to sit and watch the traffic whizzing around and to have that last Bellini.....




The last photo is of an elephant at the base of an obelisk we came across in our walking round the city.... we had not seen it till the last day.... so there really is more for us to see when we go back again.... Don't know when, but I did throw my penny into the Trevi fountain which according to legend ensures a return to Rome.

So at the end of the day, we travelled out to the airport and boarded our plane to head home..... with a touch of sadness that this wonderful 4 weeks was coming to an end.... this really was a trip of a lifetime for us.

thank you to all my followers who have come back day after day to read my journey and leave me such lovely comments.  I appreciate it.

Now back to normality and catching up on my crafting posts in the coming days....

I have really enjoyed all of your photos and your wonderful journey, what I like about seeing Europe is the 'carefree' lifestyle of how the people live, the sceneries are so quaint and people seem to appreciate all the little things - it doesn't seem so fast paced and crazy as over here in the states.
