One Week From Right.....NOW!

...our plane will be touching down (if it's on time) at Ciampino Airport in Rome.

Yes, we're spending Christmas in Rome this year. At first, we thought we were going to return to Vienna for Christmas. Then, we went to Rome in March with Jo-Mama, Colon Blow, and Mrs. CB.

I'm not sure if it was in Rome or shortly thereafter, but at some point Mrs. TBF emphatically pointed out that she wanted to "...go to Rome instead of Vienna this Christmas!" and...we're going to Rome this Christmas.

Next year, I'm picking the Christmas destination!

No, no...there's no controversy. I was just kind of set on returning to Vienna because we had such a great time (and the best meal of my life) there last Christmas. Plus, this is...what?...our fourth trip to Italy this year with...how many trips to Finland? What? I caaaaan't heeeear you!!! That's right...

Italy 4 Finland 0

Anyhoooo...

We're returning to the same hotel we stayed at in March, the airport transfers have been arranged, the restaurant reservations have all been made, and now the waiting begins.

The waiting is the hardest part...

et - my advice would be to travel to places you haven't been to yet. See the world...before you leave it!

tms - it's about time you put away that skin flute.
