Good day, ye internet surfers!
This is just a little note to say that I’m back from Europe and had an absolutely delightful time there! It was a long (and short) five weeks, and it was totally worth it. I went so many places–Rome, Florence, Siena, Madrid, Alcalà, Toledo, Segovia, Avila, L’Aquila! But I think my favorite place was where I went on my free weekend, when I didn’t have anything scheduled: I took a day-trip to Assisi.
It’s probably the most beautiful place I’ve ever been in my life. Everything there was so green and vibrant and full of life. No wonder St. Francis loved nature! And the Basilica of St. Francis was wonderful–so full of frescoes–and his tomb was awesome, in the ‘awe’ sense of the word. Even getting caught in a hail storm while trying to find the church of San Damiano managed to be enjoyable! But it wasn’t just the natural beauty or the churches that were attractive–there’s something about that place that I just can’t put into words. I’d love to go back and visit for a longer time, to spend maybe a week there. Someday…*sigh*
Anyhow, I should (hopefully) begin posting again soon.
I thought I should add a picture or two of Assisi, to show you how beautiful it is!
