I’ll never forget the ...

One of a very few...

We received this charming photo from the grandparent of a child who had visited the Sistine Chapel on a Tauck after-hours Vatican tour visit with her family. Absorbed in the moment, she is taking in Michelangelo’s magnificent frescoes above, while listening to Tauck’s local guide share their stories. To me, her image portrays what it me...
