Welcome Elaine!
Sorry we didn't make it back in time before you left. But I am hoping we'll overlap again next summer.

I just got home after a very short (5 day) DW trip and on the sad flight home I consoled myself with the thoughts of reading one of your epic reports.

Thank you!
Welcome!
It's wonderful to see that you are so excited to see this report started.

Wow! If you just returned home from 5 days at WDW, then we must have missed you by a few days. Would have been fun to meet yet another DISer!

Okay, so here is the first (of hopefully many) real life updates!

Today we have been back from our vacation for a week (already! ) and it has been a rather stressful one for both of us.
Tom's boss had emailed him to PLEASE cut his vacation short as his stand-in had thrown in the towel about 2 weeks after we had left for the US. He agreed to start on Tuesday (of last week) as we could not see him going in on Monday. We had only arrived back at 3pm and he would have had to start work at 5am the next morning. NOT good!!
So he went back on Tuesday and he has been coming home late every day since, so he already is worn out again.
I started back to school on Monday and even though I had to get up early, it wasn't all that bad (on MONDAY!!!)
But, come Tuesday I had learned that I had a new MAIN subject to teach. I am now a German teacher too, in a class that has 4 special needs kids.
So, I had my work cut out for me, but never the less I had already started planning another short trip.
We wanted to go back to DLRP for Halloween. Well, since I already used Past Tense you will have noticed that this trip is not going to be.
Why, you ask? Well, for one, I checked hotel rooms and since this is a holiday weekend they were EXPENSIVE!!! So over 300 Euros for two nights for hotels and then I needed to check on flights. We had used up most of our airmiles on the Business Class flight in May, so we needed to use the short term offer and when I looked up availability for that, it looked GRIM! Flight out in the afternoon, flight back in the morning. So NOT what we wanted to do on a 3 day vacation. So we tried every other option and what made it even more undoable was that we would have had to play taxes on the flights and they would have come to over 500 Euros. Low and behold it just didn't make sense for a 3 day trip.

So on Friday afternoon we decided to change our plans and go somewhere else.
Out of the spur of the moment I tried if our favourite hotel in Italy would be available the next weekend. And yes, it was!!
Checked for end of October and it was available too!
Guess, you know where this is going.
Quick thoughts and we decided that we could easily swing two weekendtrips to Italy and still not spend what we would have on going to Paris. So here you have it ......

We are going to Italy in 5 days

and then again a second time in 40 days!


I cannot believe we have only been back for a week and have another trip coming up in 5 days!

And this time I promise to KEEP my promise of doing a short report on our trip to Italy, especially since I never got around to doing one for our summer trip.

Been anxiously awaiting your new TR Karin! So glad you have started it. And how exciting that you are going on another, two, Italy trips. Yay for you.

We go back to WDW in 36 days and can't wait.

Looking forward to reading all about this trip. Have a great day!

Hi Karin! We just got back yesterday from Florida. Looking forward to reading about your trip. Sorry to hear you and Tom are having a rough week back at work, and can't believe you are going to Italy in five days! You have more energy than I do!

The surest way to cure post vacation blues is to go on another one as quickly as possible!

Excited to be climbing aboard at the beginning of your TR and hope to do a better job of keeping up this time around.

30 days sounds like

Jen, I read about Skip's feelings about your trip. Guess he'll get over it, but how will Claire feel? Any bribes involved?

Welcome Teresa!
I cannot believe you are back home already! Where did the time go?
Thanks so much for the photo of Mick on the DREAM. I am glad he enjoyed his surprise .... if only we had known about the anniversary as well.
Getting back to work was HARD - I teach a new subject this year and it took a lot of stamina to get back into the groove. Tom felt the same way.

But I promise to have some gelato and some pizza for you next weekend in Italy!

Welcome!
So good to see you hop on board.
We really enjoyed our 30 day vacation, but still it was not long enough - we are planning on doing a longer one next summer.

And you are so right about curing post vacation blues with another vacation. It really helped with our mood today.

19 days between trips sounds like a real good time frame between trips! I am so glad you stand up to your boss about it. Frequent Disney vacations should be part of our work schedule.

It's all good-natured....I took couple of days off earlier this year and he finally got a taste of all that I do since he gets to cover my duties while I'm gone. These are my first 2 real vacations since I started working for him in January!
