I did this last summer. They will love it. Go to Positano but it is really hard to get good accommodations right now. Find hotels you like and ask them to call you if they have cancelations. Naples is in-between as is Pompeii. Rome is very hot and crowded in June/July so you're better off spending fewer days there and more at the beach. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I think if you're opposed to abortion because it's an innocent human life, then you should not be ok with any exceptions. Not rape, not threats to the mother's life. Otherwise you're a hypocrite, because you're totally ok with "killing that innocent baby" for someone else's crimes, or for reasons that are no fault of their own. Just own that this is what you want. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
