Europe 2017 – Switzerland and Italy

Had a chance to travel to Switzerland then to Italy.  Just been reminded how hot Italy can get in peak summer in June!  It was over 30C everyday.  In the main cities I stopped on this trip, namely Milan, Florence and Rome, there was a heightened sense of vulnerability to terrorism.  Most of the large Cathedrals had armed soldiers forming part of the security.  These cities are packed with tourists.  Nevertheless, if one wants to find peace and and reflective moment to pray in the Churches and Cathedrals, it is still possible.
