Fathers, Trains and Writing

My First Trip to Italy
I made my first trip to Italy this summer to meet with my father who I hadn't seen in 17 years. There are MANY memorable experiences of Milan, Lake Como, and Venice (see picture), but perhaps one of the dearest is sitting in the many wonderful cafes, talking with my father and drinking some of the finest cappuccinos this coffee aficionado has tasted (aka "caffeine fiend"). My record was four in one day and my stomach is now paying the price. Ah, Italy, you are still with me in more ways than one!
