Viva Italia - May 1st - May 10th (Adults Only)

Well I was finally able to finish posting my trip report on a website as well as loading all of my pictures on the website as well (I still have some labeling to do for the pictures). I hope you enjoy reading it half as much as I enjoyed preparing it.

Please note that I didn't hide anything, so there may be some mentioning of Disney surprises in the newsletter (aka trip report). I don't think it is anything earth shattering, but if you really don't want to know a couple of the special Disney things that they do, you may not want to read it.

Here is the link:

I just read your report and looked at your pictures!!! It all looks and sounds so wonderful, I am beside myself.
I was glad to see that your group made the trip to Pisa, I would love to be able to do that. Last night while I was reading my guide book I made a note to try and see about getting there.
If you don't mind my asking, what was the cost?

I'm glad you enjoyed the report and pictures.

There were 21 of us that went on the trip to Pisa. The hotel found a bus company that would take us and it cost around 25 Euros per person. There's not much to see there except the Leaning Tower, The Duomo, and the Batista, but it was so much fun taking the goofy pictures and the other options for the day were to go to a winery or sit around the resort. We came to far from home to sit around and I've seen a winery before. The options may be a little different for a non-adults only trip though.

Wonderful photos and newsletter! You made me 'homesick' for Italy (spent the summer working on a cruise ship last year, and hitting most of the places you went on a weekly basis).

If you're ever back in Pisa, there's a great bakery called Il Forno Vecchio. They do wonderful baked goods using medieval recipes - outstanding!!

Thanks for posting the pics - brings back lots of wonderful memories.

You have me wondering, though, if your Marco is the same person as the Marco that was on our trip - he looks different. Our two guides were Marco and Heidi, so I assumed the same ones were together again! I will try to post a pic of our Marco, but I haven't done that before so I'm not quite sure how.

Hey, J!
My email is not letting me send, but receives just fine... Not sure what my issue is, but wanted to say how awesome your newsletter scrapbook turned out! I rushed home to see if we had that program on another computer, saw it, got excited, clicked on it, and read that they wanted me to actually *buy* it, LOL! Which I will be doing. Soon.
Great documenting with photos you have done! Love it all! Now, I can get back to labeling my pics, now that I have a *cheat sheet*!!! Thanks!

diskid, the link seems to have expired. Got your report saved anywhere else? We are doing VivaItalia on June 30 this year!

Thanks
