It's not every day you visit one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
We took a short train ride from Florence to Pisa, where we caught our plane to Paris. But of course we couldn't pass through Pisa without seeing its famous landmark. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a bell tower in Pisa's Piazza del Duomo, and it has been leaning since the 12th century. Nearly a millennium later, it's still going strong -- albeit with a little help. (From scaffolding, not from tourists pretending to "help.") (Not to say we didn't take a couple cheesy photos ourselves. You sort of have no choice.) It was actually pretty cool to walk up the tiny stairways through the crooked tower, and the view from the top was awesome.

And thus concludes our Italian portion of our European honeymoon. Hopefully I'll get around to my Paris posts and therefore finish blogging about our honeymoon soon. Then I can get around to blogging about that 2nd anniversary trip to the Amalfi Coast. But for now, regular blogging will resume shortly. As in, tomorrow. You're welcome :)
