Our travel agent, Jennifer, called us to let us know the tickets were ready for pick up. Tonight, the girls (Jennifer and Yordie) joined me at the agency and we walked through the paperwork and looked closer at the hotels. Our hotels have changed for Rome and Florence but are of comparable value. They are beautiful!
The one we are all really looking forward to staying at is the Royal Mykonian in Mykonos, Greece which is at the end of our trip. Check out this link: Royal Mykonian Hotel
Yordie is watching Shirley Valentine tonight with her partner and if that doesn’t get you excited looking at the hotel photo gallery will.
We certainly don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves though as there is so much adventure and discovery coming before we arrive in Greece. First Rome, then Florence, Siena, Cinque Terre, Chianti Region. Some of us are dreaming of food (fresh pasta, simple pizza, Chianti wine, cheeses, luscious gelato in flavours of the rainbow). I’m dreaming about all that and Vespas, the Vatican, the Coliseum, Tuscany hillsides, white marble sculptures, spectacular fountains, artwork in colours of wine, sienna, ochre and burnt umber.
2 weeks tonight we will be flying to Italy. Many thanks to our travel agent Jennifer George of Marlin Travel for the excellent service. We highly recommend her.
