We're Off to Italia

I am very excited to get on our way, but in reality, though we will leave our house at 9:45 this morning...Italy is eighteen hours away!

We leave Palm Springs and fly to SFO. (Farther west than when we started)

Then we fly to Amsterdam, arriving at 10:30 AM Saturday.


Finally at 12:30PM, (Saturday), we leave Amsterdam for Rome, arriving at 4:00 PM.


My big bag of clothes weighed in at 49.5. The "cooking bag" is 30 lb. We're off!

Next blog will be coming from ROMA! Ciao for now!

I kept watching for your final blog entry before you left.

I wish you safe and on-time flights and a wonderful time in Rome and Montisi.

And keep blogging!

Thanks, Nancy!


Have a FANTASTIC time Palma and Brad! Drink a good bottle of wine (or twenty)for me!


You certainly have a long way to go to get to Italy, but I know it will be worth it. I hope you and Brad have a wonderful time, Palma!

I'm typing this as you and Brad are peacefully sleeping 12,000 feet in the air.
Anxiously waiting for your first post from terra firma.


Have a wonderful time!!


Ciao Palma and Brad,

I tried to call your italian phone quite a few times but never got you.The segretaria was on or came on. I did leave you a voice mail.Hopefully I called the correct #. Let me know you got there ok.

tanti baci, Ida


Trying to catch up on your adventure from Toronto, hope your flights all went well - quite the route this time. Next month we will doing LAX-Toronto-London-Rome, so I get it.
