|Venice, Italy - the island of Burano.|
Did you miss me?
Whew...I've been busy!
We just returned from our 26 day Grand Circle tour of northern Italy.
What a wonderful trip...a trip of a lifetime.
This is the longest I've gone without blogging.
A whole month!
Because I decided to take a break and not post while in Italy.
It's a good thing because we were kept busy touring northern Italy (to name a few cities we visited: Rome, Florence, the Italian Rivera, Pisa, Bolzano, and Venice).
WiFi was spotty at some of the hotels.
Although our hotel in Florence had internet as good as at home.
And one of our busses had internet on board too!
Did I mention we loved gelato!
Hubby loved his chocolate flavors and I had two favorite flavors....Stracciatella (vanilla with chocolate chips) and Amarena (vanilla with cherries).
Luckily I didn't gain any weight on the trip even with eating what I wanted.
All that walking helped.
And the food was excellent!
I could live in Italy just for the pasta and gelato.
I'll be posting more about our trip so stay tuned.
Since we added a few days at the beginning of our pre-tour, we had to make reservations on our own for those days.
When Hubby called the hotel to book our room he was told he had to do it on-line.
Our first hotel room was comfortable and clean.
Nice bathroom with a tub/shower but it was so narrow only one of us could be in there at one time.
Now to unpack, do laundry and pick up the mail.
And finally time to catch up on all my TV programs.
There were only two channels in English - both news channels (BBC and CNN) in all the hotels.
So no TV watching while we were in Italy.
But I've already caught up on Game of Thrones and Mad Men since arriving home.
We celebrated my Hubby's 65th birthday today.
I baked him a yellow cake with chocolate frosting.
It was delicious!
