We went to Florence and saw Michelangelo's The David just 10 weeks after it had been cleaned for the first time in 400 years, we walked on the beach in Nice, we met a number of people that we are still in touch with today. It was awesome. A close second was a trip to Greece where we viewed where the Oracle of Delphi resided, the first Olympic stadium, spent a week in Athens, took a trip up to the Peloponnese peninsula and stayed 3 days in Santorini and 2 in Mykonos and then on to Egypt where we saw the Sphinx and the pyramids and took a river cruise on the Nile from Luxor to Aswan, so many sites, so little time!
