Traveling allows me to see the world through my eyes

No Time For Good-Byes
We finally arrive in Rome and check in to our last hotel for the tour.  The end is drawing near and it almost feels sad like we’re saying “good bye” to old friends.  We arrive at our hotel and check in. 

It was too late to try to venture into the City Center so we decide to find a local restaurant to have dinner. It was the usual group:  Kevin, Lauren, Allison, Megan, Thomas, my friend Bea and me!  This night out was to be the last time!  We walk back to our hotel and actually sit out on the patio and chatted about all kinds of things.  We move into the lobby and continued to make conversation about life in general.  This was how it was practically the whole trip. We shared experiences and traditions from our respective countries.  I look back at the multitude of conversations at the breakfast and dinner tables or during those long bus rides.  I have to say that I enjoyed every single one of my tour mates. I also really enjoyed our TD and our bus driver, Antonio.


One of my tour mates came through and e-mailed me his picture. This picture of Judith (our Tour Director) and Antonio   (our bus driver) was taken on the last day of our group tour.  Judith was an excellent TD.  She was nice, knowledgeable and got things done for us.  Antonio was an extremely good driver.  He was also very warm and friendly and got us through this tour nice and safe.  Thanks for the picture Kevin! 





Running, cycling and hiking gives me that rush! Music energizes and soothes my soul! Photography preserves my memories and tells my stories! Art provides beauty and fuels my imagination! History gives me knowledge, a deeper understanding for the present and hope for the future! Family & Friends warms my heart! And Travel . . . well Travel keeps me HAPPY!
