Day 15: Arrivederci Italy … Buon Giorno America!

In CategoryTravels, Uncategorized

Travel Day Home

Today started very, very, early … before 5:00 a.m.  The hotel was kind enough to pack us a breakfast to go.  We sleepily got on the coach one last time and were driven by our adept, and faithful driver Benito to the airport, Fiumicino Leonardo da Vinci.

Along the way, I reflected on this trip of a lifetime and knew I would always cherish the experiences and memories created here.   I did rub the nose of the Porcellino – little pig, which folklore says I shall return to Florence some day.  Woo hoo!

Santo cielo, (good heavens) Italy was far more than I ever imagined.   I hope you enjoyed my blog of this spectacular trip.

Molti bacios!  (Many kisses)

little kisses

Ciao bella! (Goodbye beautiful)

buon giorno Stati Uniti

P.S.  Remember in one of my first blog posts of this trip, referring to the plane ride,  I said that “my soft Target pants ended up looking like stretched out toddler clothing, while so many of the other lovely ladies on board were in their high heels and skin tight clothing, and full-on make-up … maybe on the way back home.”

Well … although I wasn’t in my stretched out toddler pants this time, I certainly didn’t get all “dolled up” either.  Oh well … maybe next trip.

    This truly was a wonderful trip. Although I loved the history of Rome, the beautiful ocean of the Amalfi coast, and the canals of Venice, it is the hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria I loved most. When we venture to France, I would like to visit the lake region of northern Italy and some of the small towns up there.

    Thank you for all the time you spent documenting our excellent adventure.

    Love you, D
