On Sunday I will be embarking on foreign land....literally! My parents are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary and decided to take a cruise on the Mediterranean. They told us over family dinner months and months ago and with a mouth full of ziti I said "I'm going". 14 people later and we're off to Barcelona! A 12 day cruise stopping in Nice, Florence, Rome, Naples, Kotor, Venice and Dubrovnik has me crazy excited and I've officially dubbed the trip as TOAL (trip-of-a-lifetime)!
I've heard horror stories about pickpockets but I'm tough so nobody will mess with me....and I also purchased one of those (awful-looking) wallet things you wear as a necklace under your clothes. I heard that they actually dress like Nuns and ask you what time it is right before they jump you. Try me sister!
I've had visions of the Vatican, spaghetti noodles and cobblestone streets for a long time coming and now that it's fast approaching the butterflies are beginning to dance.
I'll miss AR and please be sure to take care of each other while I'm gonel!!!
