Taste of Sicily Summer Trip Planning Progress
Did you have a good week? Well, we got through the arctic temps here the past few days. This morning, it was up to 14 degrees when I took the girls to school - a regular heatwave compared to yesterday (lol). All I could think about was those folks around the country who were cold or homeless. Awful situation to be in; and I counted my blessings that me and my little gang were in a safe, warm house.
After several weeks, Tanya and I were finally able to connect via phone last night! There's always too much for us to chat about, but, since time was limited, we got right down to business... discussing our Taste of Sicily trip. And it feels as if this trip is right around the corner - end of June!!
We definitely made some progress in our planning with the following decisions made:
Our next steps will be to determine the following and touch base next week:
I'm hopeful that by our next call, I will have finalized my dates for this trip. Tanya is pretty certain that she will be arriving in Catania, Sicily, either the 30th of June or the 1st of July, flying in via London.
But, I had wanted to stay an extra few days to a week since we have no pressing reason to come back home and so I need to finalize my timeframe.
I'm also checking airfare regularly because depending on the fares, it might influence my arrival and departure days. will keep you posted!
This week I truly had a blast writing my latest article for ThisIsTheBronx.info.
My feature was all about the architectural landmarks within The Bronx Zoo. Here is a link to the article on our site (read more) and to my Weekday Magazine Column in ThisIsTheBronx.info.
