Pompeii: Off the Bucket List!

Why was Pompeii on my Bucket List? Probably because I went to a few exhibits at art museums and was intrigued by the story. But no art museum can show you things like this:

Pompeii 1

This face is like an eerie refection of the tragedy that overtook the residents of Pompeii in 79 A.D., when Mount Vesuvius erupted.

How much of Pompeii is still standing was a surprise. The ruins were extensive, and could keep a visitor busy for days on end. The bakery, a house of ill repute, and a bath house are among the must-see sights for a day-tripper.

How about that amazing sky?

Pompeii 3

The November weather in Italy was actually quite delightful, and only got cold and windy as evening started to fall at Pompeii.

I had to leave Italy the next day, but what a weekend! Thinking about taking the same trip in April but doing different things!

Stay tuned for Portugal at the end of December.
