Well it's almost a year ago that John and I went to Rome with my college and Im feeling nostalgic about it.  Stuart's picture of the Alps reminded me because I took pic no. 1 out of the aeroplane window and i think its the Alps - on the way to Rome LOL!! The next pic is me and John at the colleseum - oh Rome is a beautiful city. The college is going to New York this year - Im missing out because we cant afford it. Everyone say ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. :(.

Well Ive finished my three days at work - we got 3 lodges cleaned and have started on the fourth - only 7 to go!!! Back to college tomorrow!!! Where does the time go? Right so I've got to get myself back into artist mode!! It's hard to fit it all in!!  We go to London on Thursday - to visit galleries with our tutor.  That should be good!!

Anyway hopefully I'll have some more pics for you tomorrow of what I'm doing in the studio - be late though - i'm going to dinner at my friend's - yippee I dont have to cook!!! It will be nice.

Love Laine xx

I think that is the Alps.  I remember flying over and being awestruck.  It's been a LOT of years ago now.

LOVED Rome...and Venice!

It's incredible to be standing in places that you've seen on tv or in books all your life.  Sort of like falling into a fairytale.

I've never been to Rome, I went to Venice and Verona. I love Italy. Shame you can't go to New York, I think you'd like it there. Have fun in London on thursday!! Jeannette.

Where is your college located?  Are you in England?
Never went to Rome, but dream of going to Italy!
Loved your pics of Rome.

Great pictures!   My first holiday abroad with Allan was to Italy - now one of my favourite places. We visited loads of places, but never got to Rome, but loved Florence etc...
Enjoy your meal at your Friends.

Beautiful pictures!
I'm green with envy because I have always wanted to go to Rome but haven't made it yet. You may think I'm crazy but I dream of seeing the Pieta ~ Michelangelo being one of my favorite artists and poets. Yes, it is a little known fact that he wrote beautiful sonnets as well.
Have a great time in London and bring back pix.
