Goodbye Italy! We are traveling today to Nice, France. I will miss the accordion music on the clear warm nights, strolling through St. Mark's Square, as well as the paper-thin and delicious pizzas. Although I avoid generalizations, it sure seems the Italians are the most cheerful and happy people around! In the four Italian cities we visited, we relied on locals for directions, advice and lots of services - and we were greeted, almost without exception, by happy people. Can't say we had that experience in Greece. Wonder how we will find France and Spain...

We passed the time on the train from Milan with some smart, seasoned young Aussie travelers, Mark and Teresa Bushell, from Melbourne. They had so many interesting stories as they had been traveling for a month already and had been to LA, Vegas, NY, Dublin, Edinborough, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Prague, Venice and now traveling to Nice. We enjoyed drinking wine and visiting with them and hearing about their reccos for another trip - Thailand or Bali is what they suggest! Who knows! Wherever we go next. I hope you'll come along!
