We will be in Italy from May 15 till July 13th. The only Diversion will be a trip end of June to Southern Germany, Austria, and Prague. We will be joined from time to time by our Daughter’s families and my Wife’s sisters and one niece and also my wife’s friend whom she studies Italian with. We of course will be in Rome several times, Pompei, the Cinque Terra, Parma, Assisi, Cortona and Florence. Additionally we will travel to the wine fields of Processco. And many stops along the way.
I hope to be able to share some pictures from our trip while we are on it as well as some of our adventures.

The adventure has begun. Started in Atlanta with Virgin Atlantic offering us free round trip ticket anywhere they fly if we would wait. We said yes, but they didn’t use our tickets so we left on time. What we discovered in London was that our luggage didn’t make it. We got to Rome and had to run to catch the train into downtown Rome only to be greeted with a taxi strike. Thank God for scabs. Made it to the apartment around 11:00 PM. But not so tired that we couldn’t go out for late night drinks and desserts with Jessica and Brian.Mary Ann and I showered and washed underwear and to bed .
Mary Ann and I got up early and went grocery shopping at the neighborhood grocery having a quiet morning. Till the Tonners wake up
Lunch in the piazza where the Pantheon is. Built in 128 AD and still standing.
