I have discovered that pictures are not coming through, darn! I think it is the slow wi-fi at our hotel. I have great pictures from our day in Florence so will try to post tomorrow or at our next hotel!
We arrived safe and sound in Rome about 9:30 Friday morning and immediately headed by bus to a lovely winery in Montepulciano. Luckily they took us to the top in smaller cars. The climb would have killed us.
After wine tasting with meats, cheese and bread, we headed to our hotel to meet the other 42 people in our group. They all went to Venice a few days before. We're staying for three days in the ancient castle owned by the Medicis. Very cool place. Tomorrow we head to Florence.
Hi all! We made it to the airport and through security. Woo-hoo. And our gate is at the very end so we are even closer to Rome😊 We have about an hour before we board and then depart at 6:30. I have high hopes of sleeping on the plane since I woke up at 5:00!! This morning.
Looking forward to sharing some wonderful moments with friends! And the sharing with all our friends we left behind.
Getting ready to depart in less than two for weeks the magic of Italy. Carol, Dan, Felicity and I will begin our travel adventure on October 20th as we head to Italy! It seemed so long ago that plans were made and now it is less than two weeks and we'll be on our way!
Writing this now to see if I can resurrect the old travel post to share news with friends. We'll see!
Oh, and full disclosure, the picture is not from Italy but I needed something...
