Last weeks weekly photo challenge was to share a photo that says “On Top.” I know that I usually share photos of my kids and things that are going on in my life at the moment, but as soon as I saw this challenge I knew what picture I wanted to share. The reason I am a week late is because the picture was taken over 6 years ago, and it took me awhile to find where I had stored it.
Jason took this picture of me in 2008 when we traveled to Italy. We rode the train from Rome into the mountains to a smaller town called Orvieto, and spent the day walking around exploring. It was a really great day for us.
We thought it would be fun to climb to the top of this really old bell tower. It was TONS of steps to make it to the top, and we had already spent almost the entire day walking, so it seemed like we would never make it, but we did and it was totally worth it so see this ancient town from up high.
Here’s the picture that I have always loved so much. I don’t know why I like it so much, but I do!
While we were up there, the bell actually began to ring, and it was deafening!
Here’s another picture of the actual view from the top:
Jason and I have seen lots of views from the top of different places all over the world, but I will always remember this as one of my favorites!
