Since the last time I posted I've been really busy.  I went to spend some time in Bordeaux, visited some friends in Barcelona, and went to Pompeii and Napoli.  Bordeaux was amazing; they were having a huge carnival around town and the city was very lively, the people were very very nice, and it was a beautiful city.  Barcelona  was kind of crazy, that city never sleeps.  The waterfront was beautiful.  We did a lot of walking and saw a ton of buildings and areas. Napoli was really dirty and kind of not my favorite, but the pizza there was awesome (definitely giving alex pizza a run for its money) but Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius were mind blowing.  All of these pictures are a combination of the three trips.

In two weeks we will be spending a week in Tuscany, and the following week I have tickets to Berlin and Prague for spring break.  The following weekend I have a ticket to Amsterdam.  Two weeks after that we will be visiting northern Italy and Slovenia for a week, and I have decided to stay in Rome (or close to Rome) for Easter.  That pretty much sums up the rest of my traveling until after the semester.

Enjoy the pictures!
