Well, the end of the year has come and gone and the next 2 vacations are already set up. This year is about the kids the first part of the year, Disney World is the first trip ( have I told you how I feel about Florida ). The grandson was impressed with air flight on his first flight until he found the in-flight entertainment.
The next trip will be back to Rome with my son Damein Berry, this will be his first time to Rome and he is bringing the girlfriend Emma Christmas. Her first time to Europe and Italy. She has been hinting that a ring would be so romantic in Italy. It’s a trap.
My hope for this trip is after showing them around a bit taking some time in a cafe to sit and relax. Damein picked up the tube in London so fast the subway in Rome will be no problem.
Is it a product of the airline industry or am I just doing it to myself? I remember being so excited to go vacation in the 90’s not sure it feels the same. I got screwed more than enough time by the airlines that I feel different now. Just check old posts from this blog.
We leave for Itay on Wednesday and working this Monday and Tuesday is killing me with thoughts running around in my brain about the trip and are the flights on time and did I get everything done at work.
So for the next few month’s, I will be traveling quite a bit. We have the Tuscany region first and I will be doing some driving for the first time in Italy. I have driven in the UK, Scotland, and Ireland ( to the left to the left to the left..left..left ). So it should not be a problem, the rest of the crew we are going with says I should get an International license. When I asked about it at the rental company about having one in Ireland he just giggled and sent us on my way.
BTW if you go a barber in Ireland make sure they speak English if you ask for a “trim” of your beard. What was I talking about…
The next trip will be to Florida in February ( Dinsey world ) I so wish it wasn’t in Florida ( read previous blogs about Florida ).
And then in March back to Roma with my sister in law and son and girlfriend, it will be the sons and the girlfriend to Italy. Not sure if I posted about the last time my sister in law took a trip to Italy with us ( long story with crying ). My son is so excited about going he has been asking about everything we can go see.
I would like to post the photos and story’s of the trip’s here and not on Facebook, let’s see how that goes…
I always forget how long it takes to get to europe from the west coast, leaving mid morning we didn’t get here till 5 pm local time on Tuesday. All in all it was not a bad trip it just takes time .
Went to a local bar last night across the street ( Cheeky Monkey ) and the beer wine and food was so good. I was so tied it was a early night and now I’m up at 2 am local time.
Well after the tour of Velleta we didn’t get to stop and see much. It’s a very cute section of the city with cafe and shop’s, it’s a must see if you come here. Got a chance to go back to Velleta and it’s so small you could do it in a half a day. The hop on and off bus is a great way to get places.
We used the hop on and hop off bus ( north route one day the south the next ) to see the country side and besides the island is so small you can go from one end to the other in a hour. Depending on traffic.
More to come…
So this is the pont where I start to worry, less then 24 hours and vacation starts. and a 2 day wait till the flights,we had snow here today and are due more so I am praying for no delays.
