Did you miss me?

That’s right!  I’m officially back in Lebo-land..and still refusing to unpack.  You know how it feels..those 24 hours after you have just come back from an amazing vacation..and are already planning your next trip..when you refuse to accept that you have to get back to reality.  But come to think of it, my reality isn’t all that bad.!  Or maybe it’s the gorgeous weather outside that’s influencing my sunny disposition!

But before I jump back into everything Lebanese, I just wanted to dedicate this post to the last couple of cities I visited on my vacation.  I wrote so much about Barcelona, that I think it would be unfair to continue without mentioning Cannes, Nice, Monte Carlo, Florence, Pisa, and Rome.

So, here are a couple of highlights from the rest of my Eurotrip..in pictures, of course.  😀

France (Cannes, Nice, Villefranche, Monte Carlo)

Cannes, France


Nice, France


Villefranche, France

One of the most beautiful views I've ever seen in my life! This is the town of Villefranche,,in between Nice and Monaco, France.

Casino Monte-Carlo

The Casino Monte-Carlo, the casino that singlehandedly put Monaco on the map..

Monte-Carlo, Monaco

Monte Carlo, Monaco.. my first time driving along the Monaco Grand Prix race track (or any race track for that matter)..

Italy (Pisa, Florence, Rome)

Leaning tower of Pisa

It sure is leaning alright! The leaning tower of Pisa, Italy.

Pisa, Rome

And what would a trip to Pisa be without a cliche "holding the leaning tower of Pisa up" picture! That's my bro..!

Florence, Italy

Beautiful Florence..and the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge in the distance.

Duomo di Firenze, Florenc

The front of the Duomo di Firenze..what intricacy! Beautiful! Florence, Italy

Colosseum, Rome

The Colosseum..

Hercules Sculpture, The Vatican

My favorite sculpture in The Vatican - The Belvedere Torso. Ok, so he's missing a few limbs..but check out those THIGHS!...

The Sistine Chapel

The roof of the Sistine Chapel, by Michelangelo..

St. Peter's Basilica

St. Peter's Basilica - the largest church in Rome and the world..

St. Peter's Basilica, Rome

Inside St. Peter's Basilica...

Trevi Fountain, Rome

Trevi Fountain - one of the most famous fountains in Rome..of which there are thousands!..

and here’s my favorite..me, my Mom, and my brother..with two “past their prime” Gladiators outside of the Colosseum in Rome!

Colosseum, Rome


This trip was really one to remember.  And although it was especially difficult saying goodbye to my family (it keeps getting harder!), I am happy to be back home in Beirut!  (Yup, I said it!  Beirut is home!)

Now, let’s see what this crazy city has been up to..

    It’s looks like it was a lot of fun, it’s good to know you changed sceneries a little, that’s always healthy. Btw, back when my Mom was a young kid, visitors were still allowed to go into the Pisa tower. It was really creepy, she said. They banned visitors the year after she had gone there, haha!

  7. Welcome back!
    I love the classic pic of your brother holding up Pisa.
