We LOVED Cinque Terre! So very beautiful, picturesque.....insert all amazing adjectives here! Sigh.......so much to see.....

That would be so fun to do London before! Sean's already pushing it in terms of annual leave. He's already going to have to finagle stuff....

Which Orange county? CA or FL??
I live in Atlanta....

My company is based on Orange County California... I commute (Yes, it's a long commute but it's also why my mother got a free Business seat for this trip!)

And you motivated me. Did some apartment research for London last night and will be sending an email today.

Thank you for any insight you can give.
We caught a 10.30 flight to Rome and used the Disney transfers. We were on a bus at 8.15 and were dropped at the airport in loads of time.

Waving hi to OCC...I'm in Atlanta too.

Like the new bag. I haven't decided which bag I'll take for the cruise. I have the crumpler...but I'm also getting a Kelly Moore bag to take to Paris this winter as a birthday present. I wanted something that doesn't scream camera bag for traveling to touristy destinations.

I am really wanting to tour Cinque Terre too! I'm not sure what DH will do. He is pretty out of shape and I'm not sure he'll be motivated by this to get in better shape. But I've been to Italy before. And we will go again when DS is a little older. To me Florence is a multiday experience, tough to see much in just a few hours and Pisa is a drive by experience not something I want to spend my day on. But to hike and take pictures along the coast is something I have wanted to do since my last trip in 1999.

Ok...time to get back to make stuff for our Oct trip to WDW. Need to get something Disney related done this weekend!!

And I figured that on boards such as these that it would tie in somehow!

I've been working on our anniversary trip for this sept/oct. Less than 75 days out!! Bought the running outfit...not sure that it matters as the run is at night, but I figure they'll have photo pass there...

I was cruising around on DCL's website today, and all the inside rooms are gone. There are 4 ocean view categories, all of which have availability. There were 3 types of verandas, but 2/3 were gty status.

Interesting.

Cinque Terre is amazing. You can always take the train or boat between towns. I only hiked from Riomaggiore to Manarola which was not bad at all. Very nice paved trail and not too far.

Finally registered Ashleigh today for Spanish camp for next week. We'd put it off hoping that we'd go to Denver with Sean for his conference, but by the time the powers that be got their heads out of their you-know-whats airfare had spiked and the banquet had been cancelled. No real reason for us to go, then, I guess. Sigh...

So, planning at a standstill. Couldn't make the Rick Steves travel classes on Italy earlier this month as it was on the day that a big yard project started. I did hear back from the Malta tour company, and this was the response to my inquiry about 8 people:


Thank you for your email and enquiry about a tour in Malta.

If you want to do a tour based on the Malta Classic we cannot add to it, but we can change the tour. I can offer you the following full day variations:

Option 1. Valletta (incl St. Johns), Mdina, Blue Grotto & Hagar Qim Temples
Option 2. Valletta (incl St. Johns), Mdina, Blue Grotto & Marsaxlokk Fishing Village
Option 3. Valletta (incl St. Johns), Blue Grotto, Hagar Qim & Marsaxlokk Fishing Village

Based on 2012 rates a full day private tour with Licensed Tour Guide is eur405 plus entrances, Blue Grotto etc...

If you require any further information do not hesitate to contact me.


Now we need to debate amongst ourselves and decide what to do. I personally am leaning toward option 1, but I can't remember if I sent this to Mindy or not....(sorry, Min, if I didn't...).

In the meantime, my attention is turning toward our imminent East Coast vacation! I'm looking forward to some warm weather. It was 60 and overcast today.

Nope never saw this one - just used that picture because I never saw it before and I think it's funny...

If you'll remember, you were withholding that info since I was teasing you.

Be careful what you wish for....you may get warm weather and no a/c...

Yay for Spanish camp! DS is on his 3rd week of Spanish camp for the summer and doing great. He'll get a 2 week break at the gym camp then it's back to school already...yikes! Next summer he will miss Spanish camp for the cruise but hopefully the days we spend in Barcelona will make up for it. he goes to a bilingual immersion international school so I think he should pick up a lot this year in kindergarten.
