007 Bungee Jump

Also in May, a couple of weeks before our family arrived, we traveled to Switzerland for Dustin and some friends to do the Goldeneye Bungee Jump off the side of the Verzasca Dam. It was a late birthday gift for Dustin and Todd whose birthdays are in April. They were totally stoked while I was completely freaked out and figured that they were going to die. I mean its only a 220 meter fall...that's 721.8 feet for crying out loud! And it is the 2nd highest fixed bungee jump in the world!

I heart vacations!

In May, Dustin's family came to visit for a couple of weeks. While they were here we went to Slovenia to visit a cave, Cortina, Amalfi coast, Pompei, and Rome. We had so much fun together sightseeing, eating and shopping. Wish we could do it all over again!

Eating yummy food at our house in Roveredo. My Italian friends made us gnoochi, arrancini, lasagne, and melanzane parmigiana. It was the BEST meal we had.  

Eating in Rome. The second best meal we had.
