Hi Kay, its nice to see you touring the world! Such gorgeous scenes. Buildings with architectures, so rich in culture! Hope you are having a great time.

P.S. I have been blogging off and on, but still manage to spend the weekends taking photos.

Thank you Kay, for the little vacation you are giving us here. Wonderful images. I have never been to Italy, although it is so much nearer for us :-)

So many memories came flooding back when seeing some of these photos. I stood in that shop I believe looking at similar masks, walked the bridge in Rome and feasted on that gorgeous building in Florence with its intricate designs. I, too, leaned over a railing or two trying to get that perfect picture. :)

Love the "leaning tourist" least you got a picture without other tourists in the way! So much lovely color in the streets!

So beautiful - I love the colors of the waters, and the "leaning tourist" makes me smile. :)
I've never been to Spain or Italy, but certainly hope to go one day!

Thank you for the virtual tour in Italy. Especially the photo of Florence is very beautiful!
Thanks for your visit and comment on International Women's Day! Yes women were supposed to be thè special pet of her husband. He could treat her well even better than his dog, but she had to obey him instead of dealing and sharing together all aspects of marriage.
