    Default On The Road Again

    Well not exactly the road. Tomorrow, I'm leaving for a two week vacation (my first two-weeker ever). We fly to Venice, then take a cruise to Dubrovnik, Croatia; Kotor, Montenegro; Corfu, Greece; Sicily, Italy; Capri, Italy; Positano, Italy; Pisa, Italy; Cinque Terre, Italy; Portofino, Italy; Corsica, France; and Rome. Hopefully, I'll have some nice pictures to post.

    I don't think I'll have access to the internet, but if I do, I'll drop by and say hello (or "buongiorno").

    Spider, there are internet cafes in Rome and probably some of the other places you will be visiting. But no need to take time out to go there (unless you feel a great urge). Enjoy the great food and sights, be wary of pickpockets, especially in crowds, and take the time to smell the roses, wherever you go.

    Holy crap, that's quite an itinerary for only two weeks! That'd be a two-month holiday for me :-D

    Enjoy Dubrovnik; it's the underrated gem of that trip.

    Have a great time, eat a lot of food (you'll encounter a lot!), and be safe (for example, don't drive in Italy :-O).

    I'm very envious!

    Be sure to try the lemoncello in Capri.

    I'm back. It was an unbelievable trip. I took about 850 pictures, so I'll have to go through them and pick out a reasonable number to post in an album here. I'm still doing laundry, putting stuff away, and generally getting things back to normal, but I'll get some pictures up ASAP.

    You got that right!

    . . . and be safe (for example, don't drive in Italy :-O).
    That, too. I sat in the front seat of a taxicab in Rome, and it was like a wild amusement park ride.

    Talk about a trip for tasting reds. Sure hope you smuggled a few extra bottles home.

    Only in my gut, but they were good. Great wine list on the ship, including some nice chiantis (please, no Hannibal Lecter jokes), and some good and not so good local wines ashore.

    Enjoy your trip! Looking forward to seeing those photos!
