Reggio Calabria & Scilla

This weekend, Token and I took an ITT trip across the ocean to mainland Italy. It was a lot of fun, although I think it's safe to say exhaustion has set in and I'm pretty much a zombie during the day. Getting to the mainland was so crazy... the bus drove straight onto the boat and then drove off once we got to the other side.

This is the site of an old Roman spa.



Reggio Calabria's main cathedral is pretty.



After that, we went to the town's museum. We weren't allowed to take pictures, but the big draw is a set of bronze statues. I guess people come from all over to see these statues.

From there, we were given free time, so we went with some friends to the market, then found some lunch.

From there, we went to the town of Scilla. We didn't really see too much there, but did get to see the famous castle and walked along the beach.




I told Token to give me a 'relective' look. Haha!!!

The end!
