Roma Therapy & More

In the time since I’ve last logged on, we’ve done Rome in a sixth of a day (or at least as much as one can in four hours: Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Tomb on the Unknown Soldier, Colisseum and a lotta walking in between followed by a semi-private tour of the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel), then it was along the Amalfi coast first to Sorrento for shuttles to the ruins of Pompeii then back south to the picturesque village of Positano before coming back up to Sorrento for the tender back to the ship.

Right now we’ve just pulled in to the port of Ajaccio and I’m looking out across the harbor to the magnificently rugged island of Corsica for some more daytripping that we’ll be departing for in about an hour. So until next time, here’s some low-rezzies of the interior ceiling of the Pantheon, a jawdropping hallway within the vast fresco map room of the Vatican Museum, a fountain within the ruins of Pompeii, and a shot looking down upon the coastal town of Positano.

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
