A Busy Weekend

We had a busy and fun weekend with friends. Saturday, after printing out what I need for Italy, charging the Italian cell phones, and making a Google map of restaurants in Bologna, we went out to dinner with Fiona, Steve, and a couple we knew in the Bay Area. Abby and John were neighbors 23 years ago in San Carlos. They have been in the desert for 5 years, and it was great to re-connect with them! They now are here full time!

Sunday, after pool time, last minute packing, we joined our Italian Meet-Up group. We had a great happy hour GTG with others sharing in plans for two of us who will soon be off on Italian adventures.

Then we saw Letters to Juliet for an enjoyable ending to the weekend.

Sweet, predictable, and filled with fabulous scenery of both Verona and Tuscany. Vanessa Redgrave was regal! No violence, just a fun way to spend a couple of hours preparing all of your senses for Italy!

You must be over the moon excited about your trip!! What a perfect way to get ready seeing Letters to Juliet. Who cares if it is not an Oscar winning movie (or at least that is the buzz I have heard) - anything with Italy as the star is a top rated movie in my mind.

Yay -- it sounds like a great weekend! I love the days before a trip, when all the fun is still ahead!
