WiFi is included at no additional charge in Rome and Venice.

I have no experience with the Tuscan hotel, so we will find out together.

Work this week was HORRIBLE. I'm being audited by a State Auditor and had to have all MY reports, files, ppwk ready 2 weeks early, as I'm going on Vacation ... Yeah it's my fault that I answered the darn telephone at work 2 weeks ago Now after working most of last week late and most of the weekend. I was able to FINALLY get thru the day. I handed off all my unfinished work and well Viva Italia !!! I too must have overpacked and I'm sure that I will have left something home - But the Car is picking us up at 1: 00 tomorrow .and .. IT"S FINALLY HERE ! THEN ...

The Airline for some stupid reason, Changed MY Seat !
For 6 months I'm sitting with John in a 2 seater row and in 24 hours I'm 3 rows back ...( No we didn't have a fight !!! at least not yet )
I call United and get a agent who speaks English as maybe his 4 th or 5th language ..NO Help then I have to get all crazy and get a supervisor. 40 minutes later we both have new seats .... and YES they are even IN the same PLANE !!

So My advice to everyone -- Double Check your Seat Assignments !!

Can't wait to see you all ... Lauren, Jeri, Christy, Jack and Cathy tomorrow and to then see EVERYONE in ROME ... Fly safe .

Ciao for now

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Please add Dino and me to the Vondaphone parade on the 24th. We land at 10:30am ( in our comfy clothes ). Hopefully we'll be at the Bernini by noon.

On our trip in September there was a charge for the wifi in Rome, hope that's changed
As far as Artimino goes, they did have free wifi, but there were several of us who could not connect to it. Something to do with security certificates and some other mumble jumble stuff. I did manage to connect via the Ethernet cable provided in the room.... Eventually

See you all soon

What an ordeal. I had that happen with my then 9 year old daughter on a cross country flight. Delta couldn't understand why I, a single parent at the time, got upset when they said I didn't have a reserved seat next to my daughter. They tried the old "equipment change" line on me but I knew that wasn't true. I've been an aircraft nut since the days you could sit on the porch at the holiday inn in Dallas and watch jets take off and land from Love Field.

So, sadly for Cathie, our seats are still together. I would have loved one of the larger pitch seats but never found 2 together. We, at least, are behind seats that don't recline.

I did manage to watch Vampires in Venice last night so my checklist is essentially done.

Safe travels.

I find the subject of ND filters quite polarizing.

Getting real close now, last few work details to wrap up today and believe it or not, I still need to get a hair cut.

Safe travels to all.

See you in Rome!
