Pray (In Thanksgiving)
My parents and I had the great fortune of taking a Fall trip to Italy with a weekend stop in Basel, Switzerland. My love for italian food definitely put this country at the top of my "places to see" list. As far as I'm concerned you cannot have a bad meal in Rome. Of course many of the foods I'm supposed to avoid - chocolate, cheese, milk, and yeast - were in abundance. I used the "I'm on vacation" card. It would have been a sin not to!
It helped that we walked a lot. We also got a good workout climbing 350 steps (some of them steep) to the top of St. Peter's Basilica. Yowza. It was well worth the view.
