Atomic Tiki Punk WHAT! WHEN! HOW!
A photofaker, approx. 1990. In Las Vegas!

hang10tiki we try.

GROG you nailed it, oh hang10tiki said that!

MaukaHale now that's cute.

hang10tiki he nailed it, you were correct.
=================================================

Our next stop was a hot spot Vatican City. The pope was there but we didn't see him. He was in a room that we were to tour but we had to detour around it so he could continue signing papers.


This shows what Vatican City looks like. It is a country.


Inside was crowded and very hot.


There were many beautiful ceilings.


Inside was crowded and very hot. Oh I said that.


There is art everywhere. So much has been saved and preserved by the catholic church that we all owe them a debt of gratitude.


I felt sorry for the pope they kept on view. Here there is no Rest In Peace. I'm glad he's really in heaven and not in this body.


Seats were out for the next mass for the masses.


Dan preferred his favorite seat on the ship.


Tomorrow the Amalfi Coast.

Wow, the Vatican looks really crowded and hot.

Their collection of artwork is amazing...so much incredible, irreplaceable stuff massed in one location. Almost frightening.

Thanks for sharing the pics.

(have I gone too far? If so, my apologies...

littlegiles I love to share and meanwhile I'm working and taking tiki project photos to share when these are done. On all the tours we heard the words priceless over and over again and we agreed.

hang10tiki indeed!

TikiAno good point.

I would say that Dan's laughter meant that you can go that far whenever you like. Not only that we are very flattered when you all take the time to honor is with your creations. It's so much fun to find them and to share them with our family. We all enjoy a good laugh.

PS remember when you sent us the Hot Chocolate Powder from your business? Dan fell in love with it and asked me to buy two bags. We are missing Oasis this year so send me a bill with shipping charges. I sure hope you still have it.

======================================================================================================

Our next stop in Italy.




We pulled into port at Sorrento.


Close up of the buildings that line the Amalfi Coast.


We got off our ship to take this tour of three places.


We boarded another boat for the hours journey to the island of Capri.


Once off that boat we took a tram to the top of the island where tourists hang out.


Post cards for sale.


I had my next Tiki Magazine photo taken by Dan.


It's beginning to be a trip to shops over and over again. We only buy tikis so this part is really boring.


I did snap some photos of art the inspires me. This was carved from a single piece of coral.


At the end of the shopping isle there was a redeeming garden to enjoy.


Overview of the garden.


Dan posed for Tiki Magazine.


For the first time I was able to touch the Mediterranean Sea.


Now it was time to catch the boat back to Sorrento.

Cheers, Wendy

Hi Wendy!

Glad you're both back safe & sound! I've been busy with the last weeks of school. Tomorrow is my last day so I'm catching up and loving the trip of a lifetime pictures. You really do a great service sharing your vacation pictures. As someone who is always planning a trip in her head I just love them! (Love the tiki pics too of course.)

Can't wait to see more!

littlegiles Pompeii was the place I most wanted to see on this trip. Here it comes.

TikiHula sunny but very hot. We needed to keep drinking water all day long to survive. However it was 109 in my home town while we were gone (as you know) and it was around 90 most of our trip. The difference is we were in the sun and mostly we never stopped in a shady place long enough to cool down.

LoriLovesTiki schools out, yippy, time for summer fun! I hope you have a wonderful summer.

========================================================================================

We continued this tour with a stop in Sorrento, Italy.


We were in a bus that drove us through town to


a restaurant for lunch. Dan loves that these countries always serve wine and he gets my glass too.


Back out on the street waiting for the bus that will take us to...


the city of Pompeii.


On the drive there Mount Vesuvius was pointed out. This is the volcano that destroyed Pompeii and could do so again.


The entrance to Pompeii.


There are thousands of these rooms where people lived and had businesses.


To walk from one side to the other in any direction takes one hour.


My Tiki Magazine shot.


Even back in time people thought to put speed bumps in the road to protect the people.


There were impressive views where you can imagine the grandeur.


They have moved much of the best art to museums but there was this one big area of pottery (no tiki mugs) and casts


of the holes left by bodies.


The volcano gave warning weeks in advance that it was going to erupt. So all the rich people left the city.


They insisted their workers stay behind to protect the businesses and homes. So those who perished were not the wealthy.


We saw a small amount of art along with


these casts.


Even stone roads show wear from the wheels that passed over it.


A corner bar. They had one on every block. Big wine vessels we put into these holding cells.


A city street would have not just a bar but a public


fountain with running water. They said that the wear of the stone shows where a person put their hand to lean forward to put their mouth under the flow. The wear shows that most inhabitants were right handed.


This shows how close the volcano was to the city.


We are now on the way back to the ship. All of the red light district with mosaics was under renovation so we weren't taken to see it.


Here is the modern Pompeii below the ruins. I wouldn't want to bet that the volcano won't erupt in my lifetime.


Back at the ship.


Time for dinner.


Now we are going for a walk before starting our work day. Cheers, Wendy

Thanks Wendy!

Today was my last day of school and boy, was it busy! My friend and vice principal is retiring in a month and I made a slide show of funny pictures of things she won't miss in retirement for everyone to see at a breakfast for her. Now I get 2 days off and the weekend and I work again for a week next week at a camp teaching digital photography. Actually that week is just 4 days. Then I have the next week off and I work the following. I'm off for the rest of the summer except for the first week of August when I'm filling it at my school's summer program. But soon I'll have lots of free time! Then I'll be on here more often. I need to think of some tiki art to do other than clay.......

LoriLovesTiki you've been really busy. I've been tiki busy too. I'll be sharing that after the trip is done here. You should be back to your art work, there's nothing more rewarding.

littlegiles it has the best views in the region and it was a bustling city. Such a sad history.

hang10tiki I think it would be fun if everyone posted a favorite photo from one of their vacations. Please this is a request.

===============================================================================================
The next day on the cruise was at sea. Now is the time to do activities on the ship.


hang10tiki your necklace was worn most days of our trip. It was easy to miss in the photos with my colorful shirts so here's one looking at the ocean. Thank you for this gift.


Our first activity was to go to a specialty restaurant. For $5 a person you may go to one and have a meal. Dan choose the crpe place.


His coffee was a work of art.


We are always able to see where the ship is located.


My favorite photo of myself in that spot. I'm smiling at you for looking at our vacation photos.


Next we went to the glass show. Dan's holding a seahorse goblet.


It's so much fun to watch all the techniques. The glass artist lined this melted glass string up perfectly and then


he took needle nose pliers and twisted all the lines of colored glass.


The luckiest people we know. Polynesian Paddy and his wife Barbara won 3 works of art on the last cruise and 1 on this cruise. We have won zero.


The next day was a tour in Santorini Greece.


This is the island of all the famous views of the white cities with blue roofs.


Coming into port we could see these home lining the rocky island hills. This is not Hawaii.


This is the island.


I am at once honored with signs showing me the way. I was a bit confused. Was I to dig a hole?


The streets were for walkers only. As was most of our tours the walkways were lined with many shops and restaurants.


When I did this selfie I missed the view and got the garbage cans.


There is the famous church seen in all the postcards.


Dan did a better job getting this one for submission to Tiki Magazine.


Once again I was sent on the right course.


We ended up at a Greek Winery. Dan was so happy.


It was a beautiful view and we could see our ship.


Dan enjoyed trying out all the wines.


I tried to be a real photographer by doing this artistic photo.


We took the tram back down the hill and


got on the boat to the ship. I got Dan with the magazine.


I'm good at selfies that show us but I always seem to miss the view.


One last view of the hillside of Santorini.


The ship heads on and we are back


at the glass show. This time they made a sea turtle.


Now I'm off to work on the Tiki Atari kickstarter mugs. Cheers, Wendy
