Next Stop Rome!
Hello dear friends!!
Well, today is the big day - me and my gang are leaving for Italy. We'll be flying into Rome (direct flight from NYC) and arriving in the wee hours of the morning on Wednesday August 6th.
I'm not a great plane sleeper; I'm always afraid I'll miss something - food or a good movie. And unfortunately, my kids have the same bad habit. I am going to try to make a concerted effort to catch a few winks on this flight - we'll see if that actually happens!
Tanya is leaving today as well for her Uk/Scandinavian trip - but with the time difference, she will be leaving a bit later and be about a day behind because she first stops in NY.
Italy, and the spring and first love all together should suffice to make the gloomiest person happy – Bertrand Russell
What's really cool is that we didn't even plan to be traveling through Europe at the same time. Great minds think alike - or maybe it's just cuz we are cuz'es.
In any case, we are off!! More to come!!
Have an terrific Tuesday!!!
All Packed and Ready to go!
Hiya! Today is the BIG Day!
How time flies! I can't believe that we are already leaving on our trip TODAY!!!
And what a coincidence it is that Elisa's trip was booked for the same day!
We are both heading to Europe!! *Happy Dance*
If you travel and you haven't been to Europe, then you are definitely missing out!

We're gonna have lots to show and tell in the next 3 weeks of all the adventures in the great cities and towns that we have planned!
Now, while Elisa is leaving from JFK today, and is ahead of me in the time zones (I'm in Southern California). I'll be leaving later on and first stopping in New York - I planned a long layover to spend the entire day in my city!
Luckily, I got through most of my to do list yesterday and only have a few things left to accomplish this afternoon.
Unlike Elisa, I have absolutely no trouble sleeping on flights whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I have no problem falling asleep anywhere! As soon as I give my body the go ahead and close my eyes, I'm out like a light in a matter of under a minute! So, I will be snoozing on my red eye, so that I will be fresh and ready to go first thing in the morning!
My kiddos are staying home in Cali for this Anniversary trip, and I will miss them dearly! We will be staying in touch by means of FaceTime and text everyday!
And then once I return on August 28th, we will all be heading to Las Vegas to spend Labor Day Weekend! I reminded Cosette of this last night and she was like "you don't ever stop!" She is my cutie, but definitely not as much of a Wanderluster like her mom! Dominic definitely has more of my adventurous nature!
Wishing everyone a wonderful day, and I'll be catching up with you tomorrow from the Big Apple!
