I'm really glad we ditched our group on this one.We climbed a wall. We saw the view. 
And most importantly experienced Dubrovnik. My dad loved Croatia, he
didn't like A LOT of the cruise so you know right before it ended
he found his spot:) Oh so did Robert and Elyse (if the place has a cat or in the case 5,000,000,000) 
they will ask to go there every day for the rest of their childhood 
(I'm not even kidding).

Elyse found a butterfly and it wouldn't let her day = day made

Let me be the first to tell you how much I disliked Venice. Much like the rest of Italy it
 was dirty,crowded, and had people trying to sell you stuff 
wherever you went. I'm not a big fan of Venice and the gondola rides are quite cheesy. 
I did like all the brides though all 400+ of them:) 
Probably will never come back to "The Floating City"

Today is my birthday so I wanted to share my favorite place in Italy! Italy is dirty. After a long day in Rome, Capri is just what we needed. My mom took the smart option to not
go to Naples or Pompei (absolutely miserable 90 + degrees!). Capri was definitely a highlight of the cruise as we ditched yet another tour guide for free time :) (We ditched quite alot)...
I kinda slacked taking photos in Capri until Bethany, Dad,
Robert and I ended up on a little beach:)

My new favorite and Bethanys fine work using Aperture:)   

Robert and Elyse enjoyed chasing birds EVERYWHERE

Rome was quite a long day so Robert & Elyse stayed in the kids club on the boat.
We got to go tothe Colosseum, catacombs (forgot which ones):, and of course no trip to Rome
 is complete without a trip to the Vatican or more specifically St. Peters
Basilica (the biggest church in the world!). We only got 20 minutes in the Basilica which was not enough time
there is so much to see! (Next time:)

I can't tell you how many people got this guards photo.
I felt bad as I was one of them

{lucca and pisa}

Yep. Pisa as in the Leaning Tower! If you have ever been to Pisa you will know how dirty it was and how if the leaning tower wasn't there you would probably never go there.... Sorry if you like Pisa....
my little brother loved it. Not a highlight for me.
But we did get to go to Lucca and I loved it! I don't know why I love it I just do:)
