Told you I would be back. Was planning to do at least a weekly update while in Rome but after 3 bottles of wine writing is harder, thou friends would argue most the posts here are after a few drinks.
Anyways the big one Rome Italy!
Lets start with the good:
There is a lot and I can go on for whole paragraphs about it (and may)
The area is gorgeous. For a city with so many people and that has stood for thousands years it really has a small town feel. With no building over 6 story turn down any side street and it really transforms into a small town.
The food. My god the food. How is the whole country not 500 pounds I don’t know (likely due to all the no steps, more on that later). Italian dinners are later usually around 8-9pm. Meal sizes are huge…
This morning I had to say goodbye to my puppy,he had lived a long time and father time caught up with him. He never found a ball he didn’t love and I will miss him leaving his toys all over the house.
I brought him home from Fallon,NV when I just happened to be in the supermarket and he was the last puppy of the litter and was min’s from going to the pound. He was a very happy dog and I hope I gave him a better life.
As he got older he decided that everything in the house belonged to him,and would lift his leg and make sure everyone knew. When it was dinner time he would find a toy and run around the house bouncing and shaking the toy just to let everyone know dinner was done.
So we are off to Florida again, this time it’s just Grandma myself and the grandson I thought. Seems Tanner and Sandy and uncle Nick and Joyce would be meeting up there. The flight was not as bad as I thought even with American changing my wife’s flight, that meant I had to herd a 10-year-old across the country.
The grandson was so excited to meet Mickey and on I think the first night we had dinner with all the characters at 9pm, grandpa was so tired.
As for the park itself, the scam that everyone knows about it being expensive is so true. I could have taken 2 European vacations for the price of one trip to Disney World. One of the good things if now you can get adult drinks in all of the parks.
We also got a chance to take him ( and me ) to the Kenady Space Center, it was another hot and humid day so not to much time was spent there. I think Donta liked it after he saw The Atlantis shuttle.
All in all, it was a good week I would suggest a break in between the days of any visit. Donta did not mind hanging out at the pool and they show movies there also. Our room was at the almost end of the “resort” and I use that word loosely so after a few days Donta wanted to go to the room by himself. After a wrong turn and a point in the right direction, he found it.
