Remarkable News!

LOOKING ahead to July 2010, you will never believe where the Mister and I are going!
Can you tell by the map? Is it big enough so you can see the names of the wonderful cities we will visit?
This is still somewhat unbelievable for me -- an opportunity to experience a little more of Europe and other cultures.
We will arrive in Venice July 24th and then travel by ship to Dubrovnik, Corfu, Taormina, up the Amalfi Coast, Florence, Monte Carlo, Portofino and then to Rome. July should find us in very warm weather with thousands of other tourists exploring the Heart of the World. (Or "The Stomach of the World," since the food is among the best in the universe.) We must begin studying all the places where we'll touch down so we will be prepared to take off quickly and make the most of our shore excursions.
We will be traveling with my sister and brother-in-law, so will have the delight of knowing at least two people on board. Ciao for now - femminismo

Oh Jeanne, how wonderful! Can't wait to hear about/see it. Such fun is in store for you and the Mister.

Wonderful I wonder if you will be able to or want to blog as you go... maybe on downtime on the ship?

Have you read Lawrence Durrell's travel essays on Sicily? Or his brother Gerald's hilarious memories of being a boy on Corfu: "My Family and Other Animals"? If not, I recommend them both. Though I don't think either would be very useful in the practical sense, they sure convey the feel of the places.

congratulations, I saw Venice a few years ago- I will remember it forever just from those few days.
