In August, 2007 my grandparents (mother’s parents) celebrated their 50th anniversary. As a present to the family they paid everyones way across the pond (all 25 of us). The tour lasted three weeks but it felt like a month. Everyday was action packed and just when you felt like taking a rest my grandmother would crack the whip and drive us on again to another part of town or to catch another midnight train. We met family (who treated us like royalty) and saw the sights, when all was said and done Italy was great but I was happy to fly home to Vermont.
