My Trip to Italy

Marvin D. Rouse @ Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice, Italy 2015

Wow, is all I can say! I am just returning from Europe, blessed to physically see some of the greatest and most famous Artists in our History, such as, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Van Gogh,  Rembrandt, Jackson Pollock & Picasso,  and the list goes on. Not to mention the endless famed historical museums and churches that date back thousands of years.

The trip of a lifetime begun leaving Ft. Myers, FL to ATL, then to Amsterdam and finally arriving in Milan, Italy, which for me was long winded being that this was my first time overseas and had to endure a bit of jet lag. But amazed to be  arriving on the morning of World Kindness day as we learned from the greeters that approached us with flowers and luggage tags at the Milan airport. As we headed to our awaiting uber which was taking us to the UNA Hotel you could feel that this was going to be a life changing special trip.

The first thing that wows me on the way to the hotel is the moment this giant castle appears out of no where  and amazed me in the most profound way...it was absolutely majestic!  After getting settled into the hotel we headed to the streets to get something to eat and walked to the Duomo to check out the big Castle. Once there, we walk in to a small room adjacent to the castle and paid to walk up 200 stairs or so to the roof where it was an amazing view of the Milan skyline and the Galleria where we would eat dinner later in one of the oldest malls in the world.

Getting up early to eat the best food in the world before heading out on a early foggy morning walk on the wet cobble stone pavers of the streets of Milan to go and see Da Vinci's "The Last Supper" at the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie was just the begging of something great to come!   ...My life would change forever!
