Today, we wake up at 4:00 a.m. Our taxi will pick us up at 5:00 a.m. to head to Fiumicino Airport where we will catch a British Airways Flight at 10:57. We get to the airport in plenty of time. We find a café to have a nice breakfast and we go shopping in the Duty Free shops to use up the last of our Euro’s. That was actually fun. As our flight takes off from Fiumicino Airport we say Arrivederci “Roma!” Until we meet again!
We arrive in London’s Heathrow airport to catch a connecting flight to LAX. Here we have about an hour to do more shopping at the Harrod’s store. That was really fun since we didn’t get to do any shopping when we first arrived in London. I bought more things to put in my overstuffed backpack.
We board our plane and thanks to my friend we get the front row seats in our humble economy class. I enjoyed the extra leg space and there were no reclining seat in front of me to take up more of my space. JOY! I can’t believe that I stayed awake the whole time. I watched 3 movies in a row.
We finally arrive in the good old US of A and we go through customs. When I reach my house I slowly unpack and do my laundry. I turn on my laptop and connect my portable storage device to view my pictures. I begin to remember all the wonderful experiences that I had during my Grand European Adventure. Hey, Kathy’s Grand European Adventure! That’s what I’ll name my web page!
“Traveling allows me to see the world through my eyes . . .
My passion for travel, exploration and adventure is genuine and strong . . . . . .
And my desire to travel the world has me already dreaming and planning of my next grand adventure!”
Stay tuned! Ciao’ for now!
