It’s time for me to say goodbye to Europe and hello to the United States. I’m sitting in the Marseille airport waiting to board a flight to Amsterdam where I have a layover before heading to Atlanta. I haven’t been able to upload photos from my camera to my computer since I got to Albania (and I couldn’t find an electronics store that sold the right equipment), so I have tons of posts just waiting for their photos. (My iPhone photos just aren’t good enough to go ahead and post everything.) There’s a lot more of my trip you will see soon. In Albania, I will post about my visits to Kruja, Durres, and the breathtaking southern beaches and Llogora Pass. After that, there’s my stay in Polignano a Mare in the Puglia region of Italy, a surprise afternoon visit to Rome, as well as four days in Nice and Avignon in France. Until then, I have to share my favorite photo of the whole trip, which I took this past Sunday in the old city area of Nice:

I took this panorama in the lovely city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, in July 2009. Dubrovnik is on the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia on the Adriatic Sea.
