The joke I received from my friend Rod (of the band Sur Rod from Nashville) is that I was on a world tour. Well, no - I wasn't. This was strictly vacation, but what a great time I had in August 2017 visiting Italy, France, Monaco and Spain.

Pompeii

Here's a photograph I took while touring the ruins of Pompeii. It had been a dream of mine to visit here, and it was everything I'd hoped it would be. To walk these ancient streets was an overwhelming feeling, and I couldn't take enough of it in. I will say it was rather hot, but the visit was over too soon nonetheless.

More photos to come. This is one of many.
