Italy, Croatia, and Greece 2009!

So in May/June of 2009 I got the opportunity to go to Italy, Croatia, and Greece and spend 23 days in really amazing places! I visited Rome, the Amalphi Coast/Sorrento, Florence, Pisa, Assisi, Ravena, Milan and Venice in Italy. I went to Split, Croatia. In Greece I went to Corfu, Athens, Mykonos, and Olympia. I had the most amazing experiences sight seeing! The first week we had a rental car, the second week we went on cruise, and the third week we rode the Eurorail train. We had the overall transportation experience. In Milan and Florence, Italy we got the privledge of staying with LDS Italian families, we stayed in hostels, hotels, and the cruise ship. I met a lot of fun people on the cruise from all over the world! It was fun trying to communicate with people in so many different languages. The first day of our trip we were in Rome we left our car in daylight and came back to the car in daylight and our car had the side window smashed out and all of our luggage was gone! So that made for a traveling trial! We lost so much; however, we got through it and bought the essentials to get by the next 22 days. We could of let that ruin our trip but it didn't! Ya we lost cell phones, an ipod, every piece of clothing we liked, shoes, make-up, etc. but we moved on and had a great time in Europe. It was hard to narrow down the pictures because I took so many! Below are some pics from every place we visited in order! I'm so happy that I got to go on this trip! It was amazing! First pictures are from Rome.
