Pisa & Rome

Mom at Fountain of Trevi

I was chatting with my mom the other day about her trip to Europe, and she told me she'd kept letters and postcards she'd sent to my grandparents while she was on her tour.  
She also said she'd kept her original train tickets and I believe the ticket for the ship. 
She's sending everything to me so I can digitize it.  
I thought it'd be great to include them in the book I'm making for her. 
I'll be sure to share them once they arrive. 

Train Station Pisa

This is the train station in Pisa.  Mom's the one sitting on the bench in shorts.  
I think that's the one and only picture I have of her in anything other than a dress or skirt.

Tower of Pisa

And, of course, the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa.  I've never been there, but I'd love to see it.

St. Peter's Square Rome

This is St. Peter's Square in Rome.

I remember when my brother and I took a bus from Germany to Venice.  When we arrived at the Italian border, we had to stop to pay a toll.  The tour guide told us that most of the toll money collected at the border goes to the Pope.   I don't know if that's true or not but if it is, that's a lot of money!
