Exploring life experiences at home and beyond – Destination Happiness




Descent – Weekly Photo Challenge

I’m not a step/stair person. Give me the elevator or escalator any time. On my recent trip to Italy however,  avoiding  steps  meant missing out…so descend I did ( and ascend as well!! ). This particular staircase at the Vatican Museum was one of the more interesting ornate descents.


This one was at the site of Pompeii at the arena. Awe inspiring history.

brian ph 832 I have never descended ( nor imagined I would ever) so many steps as I did on this trip and each assisted me to see  amazing things.

Author: Travelling Macs

A mum to 2 grown up children with young families of their own, who always make me proud. I'm a wife, grandmother,friend, sister, a recently retired teacher and a beginning ukulele player. I love eating great food but am becoming interested in cooking. Love traveling around this great country in which I live and worldwide more recently. Often found traveling with my husband Brian. I write for pleasure and if it's read (and enjoyed) by others then that's a bonus! 2014 saw me begin the 'new' me. Working hard at leaving the fear of 'what if' behind and replacing it with YOLO adventures. :)
