Luckily our current approach to home education gives us the flexibility to study a topic in depth without having to rush through it. However, I think we have had enough of Italy by now so I am happy to report that we are finally wrapping up at a suitable place - by the coast.
We were at Canterbury over the weekend where we walked along the Roman city wall.
We were on our way to see the Reculver Towers and Roman Fort. It location is stunning and right by the coast. Very appropriate for a departure by sea (as Marco Polo did when he first left Venice), don't you think?
Before we departed, we had a very delicious meal at an Italian restaurant. The food was so good that I completely forgot to take photos of them until we had finished eating... Fortunately, the restaurant has a shop section that sells food-related items from Italy so I took a few shots of the wide variety of food stuff there:
Since we have been all over the place (in time), reading the historical fiction recommended by Julie from Highhill Education has been very useful to take us back to 13th century Venice.
We are going to take a break from The Travels of Marco Polo for now and resume his journey in the autumn. You can read all of our Italian Experiences with him here.
