Our trip to Europe begins in three weeks!
Many of the details have been worked out. We leave the 5th of September for Rome (via London) on British Airways. We’ll spend 4 days in Rome and head for Florence on the 10th. Florence gets our attention for 2 days and then its off to Venice for an over-night. The following day we’ll take a train to Bologna to catch a sleeper train to Paris. From Sunday, the 14th, through Wednesday we’ll spend our time touring Versailles, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower. We leave Paris on the 17th for London. A few days in London to take in the sites and then it’s back to AZ on the 20th.To prepare for the trip we’ve not only been saving our Benjamins, but we’ve also been dieting and working out. I’ve dropped 20 lbs from my waist and have increased my stamina and strength. I recall the last trip to Europe being all stairs. It sucked. At this point I feel I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in. I’m benching more, running farther, and feeling great. Heck, I weigh less than I did when I got married. Giddy up!
