I can't believe we are all going to Italy.
20.03.2020 - 03.04.2020
I have created this blog to share our (Dave & Mary, Don, Susan & Carrie, Paul & Judy and Ann & Christina) , trip to Italy in March 2020. This trip has been two years in the making. It started with a video from the Amalfi Coast on Facebook. I am not sure if Mary shared it with me or vice versa, I commented that I could picture the two of us sitting on the balcony having coffee. From there Mary said let's go, soon after Ann chimes in "Me Too, MeToo"! The rest is history and here we are less than 6 months to go till our trip to Italy. We will fly into Rome and then spend 4 nights in each of these cities; Rome, Florence and Venice. Our traveling partners are a mixture of family and friends; sister Susan, brother in-law Don, niece Carrie, sister Mary and brother in law Dave, Mary & Dave's long time friend Paul and Judy, and cousin Ann and her friend Christina.
You are probably wondering why it's taken two years to get here? First of all a chance to save up, plus we have chosen to do it ourselves to create DIY tour from booking our own accommodations, choosing transportation and creating an itinerary that will suit everyone, thank you Rick Steves. There is a lot of options in our itinerary of things to do and places to see in each city, everyone may pick and choose what they would like to do. We want to make sure there are no regrets. Marv and I have spent many hours reviewing hotels, flights and sites to see, I think we have come up with a pretty well organized trip. Our rooms are booked and this month we meet to review the itinerary and flight options with everyone. I will keep you posted as we get closer to are departure date in March. Until next time.
PS I am practicing my Italian, Rick Steves encourages everyone to learn some Italian, I will be watching a few videos to so this.
