Ah, Italy! This was on the top of my list as the destination of my dream vacation! And so it came true this year. After much discussion and consultation on Fodor’s (www.fodors.com), we came up with the following itinerary: Leave US, land in Milan, then cover in the following order – Venice, Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre, Rome, Nice – and fly back to US from Nice, France. Here are some memorable moments from the trip:
April 16, 2004: 6 am… barely got any sleep – maybe it was the excitement of finally going to Italy or maybe it was the haphazard style of packing that we were engaged in for the past 2 weeks!!! So at 6 am, we went in our rented car to the airport – with just two backpacks! In hindsight, the backpacks were the best decision we made! It was so easy to move from one place to another.
Anyway, the flight from San Diego took us to NY – we landed there sometime in the evening. From NY we boarded a flight to Milan, Italy. The flights were courtesy, Sri’s delta miles! Perks of Consulting!
