This is a shout out of thanks to all of my followers. I so appreciate you taking the time to read my work and for any commenting. I am hoping that by the time I return from my 2015 summer vacation, that SCOTUS will have ruled favorably on same sex marriages and Obama Care; and that some police officers are finally held accountable for any wrongdoing in the Freddie Gray case.
GRAZIE MILLE! Thank you to bloggers, Jueseppi B and Dr. Rex for reblogging a lot of my work and for just being an extra ear. Also, thank you, RenxKyoko, RennyDiokno for rebogging some of my posts and Xena for your mentoring, support, suggestions and for rescuing me from the cyber stalker.
I will miss you during my blogging hiatus and have a great summer!!!
I am so excited about touring Italy for the month of May 2015. A lot of preplanning went into this trip, starting with purchasing Delta Airline tickets around July 2014. We three Floridian ladies who range in ages from 65-69 years old are so pleased with the results of all our work and with the budget for this one month trip. It is about $5000 per person for airline ticket expenses; travel insurance; overnight accommodations; transit expenses between cities; and a food budget per day. By splitting hotel, apartment and taxi expenses by three friends, we were able to save monies.
One of the highlights will be the 2015 Milan Expo (World’s Fair) which is supposed to be a foodies paradise. We are traveling from the northern area in Lake Como to south of Naples when we stay for a few days on the Amalfi coast.
I am a retired airline employee who also, used to arrange tours as a profession many years ago while I lived in Brussels. One friend, a former NY teacher is a frequent world traveler and the other NJ friend is a recently retired hospital executive who is about to learn what patience means. She was worried about the ISIS threat to attack the Vatican. I did not send her a copy of all the tweets by Italians to ISIS, warning them about Italy’s traffic problems along with some other funny comments.
Sample of a tweet by Cathy Crowley on 2/21/15:
In short, the Italians’ humorous tweets in response to ISIS attempts to instill fear is typical or their attitude towards life.
I will be taking lots of notes so that I can blog about our adventures when we return.
