In the meantime, both of us are pretty tired from just getting back. It's almost 8 am Italy time and we've both gotten very little sleep. It's over 18 hours of traveling for us...45 minute taxi ride to airport, 2 hour from Rome to Munich, 2 hour layover, and 12 from Munich to Tokyo, and a 1.5 hour train ride home). We're trying to stay awake at least 4 to 5 hours longer so our sleep schedule isn't too messed up :)
So the pictures... :) We spent four nights in Venice, seven nights in a small town in the Tuscany region, and six nights in Rome. Instead of posting pictures straight on this blog, I uploaded video picture-slides to youtube.
Here are the links to the video-slides: **UPDATE (7/28/08)..these videos have recently been set to "private"
