Adventures to the Old Country


In about a week I'm packing my bag and going to Italy and Sicily...for 3 weeks. I'm heading back to Italy to spend some time relaxing, eating, drinking and celebrating my new year with some family that I haven't seen in 15 years. It's definitely a trip that I've been hoping to take for a while, just waiting for the right opportunity. Too bad I couldn't convince any of my friends to come with me; and too bad I don't have a cutie to accompany me. The good news is that I'm hoping to find one there...drinking wine alone is just no fun at all!

So, my itinerary is pretty flexible...
June 12 - June 15: arrive in Milan then head straight to the French/Italian border and the Italian Riviera - Staying in the small town of Torri Superiore nestled in the mountains.
Town of Torri Superiore, Ventimiglia

June 15 - 20: Make my way to Tuscany. Spend my days in small towns, visiting vineyards, drinking wine, and wander around the countryside. Maybe I'll get a Vespa to zip around town in! Or, probably just a bike...a bit safer for me, if you know how I drive.
Town of San Gimignano, Tuscany

June 20 - July 1: Take a boat to Sicily to visit my aunts, uncles and cousins.
Random market in Sicily

July 1 July 5: Head over to Rome for art and beatiful gardens...then fly home!
Borghese Gardens, Rome

Stay tuned for updates of the trip...complete with pictures, news of love, food, and adventure!

Ciao!

I hope you are having a wonderful time! I wish I was there! Of course now that you are gone I need a name of a person you were going to put me contact with to help me with my Dad. This actually was a student who was in the nursing program and his mom. I think we can send some work there ways starting in July. I could you the son in the evening and Mom in the morning and a few days full days a week. I'm not sure if they are still looking for work but if you have their name or how I can reach them I can give them call and try and set it up it! I miss you!!! Drink some wine for me!!! Love you!!
