I am going to Italy!

In March, I am going to join my Mom and Giuliano on a trip to Italy.  To make the trip even more fun Chris has decided to come too!   We are going to meet in Rome on March 9th and Chris and I are returning on March 24th.  High level plan right now is Sicily, Pompeii, Tuscany and Rome.

I am so very excited about the trip.  Mom and I have been talking about it for a couple of months Now that the actual planning started I am getting even more excited about what we are going to do and what we are going to see.  I started a rough schedule and have been doing research about each location.  I know that Giuliano will be able to help us decide what to do and when and that is very helpful. I just have to be able to find the balance between getting all the highlights in and remembering that this is vacation.  Go slow and enjoy it.

As for getting ready for this trip, Christmas really helped.  Allie got me the Rick Steve’s Italy travel guide and Dan bought me the most wonderful luggage. For my birthday/Christmas my Mom got me the Kindle fire.  I used it on our trip to California and it was a great travel companion. I was able to load movies and books for traveling.  I have found some travel guides for the fire and those look great.  I am looking forward to using it to keep everyone up to date on where we are and what we have seen.   I also bought an eye-fi card that can be used to upload photos over wireless while traveling.  Knowing me, I will be taking A LOT of photos. 
The other thing on my “To-Do” list is to get in shape for the trip.  Last thing I want is to walk all over and enjoy the first day and be sore for the next couple of days.  That deserves a post of its own.
