On The Road Again...

Tomorrow morning, we will be heading off to Siena, Italy for a 50th birthday party extravaganza with our neighbors Corey and Suzanne. They picked up a rental car (I think it's a VW Passat station wagon) at the office, and the four of us will be cruisin' on down the highway starting at about 8:00 tomorrow morning. Mrs. TBF is boarding her flight in Nice, France right now as I type, so she won't be back in Basel until about 11:30 p.m. I'm sure she'll be missing all the nice scenery for at least part of the seven-hour drive while she's catching up on sleep.
I'm looking forward to this trip. It'll only be the third major driving trip we've done in the time we've lived in Switzerland - Basel to Madrid in late 2001, Basel to Burgundy last spring, and now Basel to Siena.
The maps are ready. I'm packed. Talk to you early next week!

Ooooo... Have fun! I'm sure the warmer weather will make you happy...

Oh and I opened up some fizzy water yesterday and it went all over me! I thought I had it under control, you know open slowly and it's fine.. But no the damn cashier woman must have shaken it about 50 times before spiraliing it down the check out area...

The result - all the fizz is gone.... GRRRRR...

Now I know you can relate. :)
