Ciao, suckahs!

I got my passport today!

I am now free to travel the world.

Part of my afternoon was spent on the phone with the airline. My trip to Italy is in the works! Whoo hoo! June seems so far away...

My brother's job takes him all over the world so he's racked up quite the pile of frequent flier miles which, as it turns out, are transferrable. My plane ticket will be free.

My cousin lives in Italy with her military husband (off base), so I have a free place to stay.

I guess all I'll need is spending money for is food, taxis and lots and lots of wine.

Happy dance!

So, who's been there? Tell me what you did. Tell me what to look out for. Tell me what I absolutely shouldn't miss.

Most importantly, tell me how to not stick out like a sore thumb.

I'm mental with excitement about your upcoming trip.

I'm a total travel whore, and it's basically our hobby.

I have a couple of questions for you:

Is it your first time to Europe?
Where in Italy are you going?
How long are you going for?

Feel free to email me and I can bore you to death with too much planning information.

Well I haven't been there miss thang, but you must see all the artsy crap. Sistine Chapel, Romes many architectural wonders, and all those naked guy statues. (ew)

Awesome! Is Jim going too? I have been there 2x - Rome and south only though. Where are you going? Rome is magnifico - you have to drink a bottle of vino at one of the many cafes in front of the Pantheon one night and see the forum. If you go south, avoid the Naples train station like the plague but go to Pompeii and the Amalfi coast if you can.

Never been, though I'm 1/2 Italian. But, I know through family tradition that "Vaffanculo" is a nice, warm greeting.

For Your Scrapbook

I like stuff and things. I've been married for close to 14 years and have two miniature versions of myself running around (and it frightens me most of the time). I have never been nor will I ever be a vegetarian.
