Guest Blog - Teacher Meets Europe

Today I'm trying a new experiment - a Guest blog exchange - a bit like a house swap. I'm pleased to welcome my new blogging friend Monna, a Canadian on the loose in Barcelona, who blogs at Teacher meets World. And in return she's hosting me today as a guest blogger on her site - so when you've finished here, head over to her site to read my post on Memories of Travelling and Rome. I know you'll enjoy Monna's insights on what different cities she's visited have taught her.

Thanks for agreeing to participate in this crazy blog exchange. I love the shots taken of your family when you were a girl. In many ways, my Rome (from Christmas of 2007) looked very much the same as it did in the older photos. But I saw nothing as cool as your mom's dress!
