Final Countdown!

LEANING TOWER OF PIZZA!

I don’t think I’ve ever been so anxious to leave for vacation as I am today. Tomorrow is the day when my bus leaves for O’Hare. I look forward to the luxury of being on a cruise ship that will whisk me away to Europe. Of course, the only thing I dread is the travel time to Munich and then transferring planes to Barcelona.

I can’t even begin to express my excitement about going back to this mysterious world of antiquity. It is amazing to see these old cities like Florence, Pisa and Roma which have survived for all these centuries. The history that was studied in school comes alive in a surreal way. To actually be in some of these historic places is words beyond measure. It is a feast for the eyes to gaze on such wonders as the leaning tower of Pisa, Michaelangelo’s David, the Coliseum in Rome and St. Peter’s Basilica. anyone who has been there can relate.

I’m going with a great bunch of people whom I have traveled with before. Cruising on a luxury ship is the best vacation. I have not been disappointed yet with Celebrity Cruise Lines and I don’t want to ever experience something bad. For those of you who may be interested, next year we are doing a seven day cruise on the Western Coast to experience Wine Country. I’ll be putting that information up in a few weeks.

Until then, try following me on my blog. I’m hoping to be able to post from my iPad.

Ciao for now!
