Vegas for the weekend

So after just getting back from Fiji I had a show to go to in fabulous Las Vegas. The Mike O Meara Show live.Its a radio show from Washington DC gone to podcast 10 years ago. It’s just a hour flight I thought,and the wife was to be joining me.She like Vegas a lot more then I do,that did not work out like we planned. She had to go to the Philippians from Fiji for work,that kinda pissed me off.

So my son came up from Arizona for the show and when him and I go to Las Vegas nothing good happens. I didn’t know the hotel that my wife booked Downtown Grand was one of the the hotels a lot of the fan’s use. I met some of the people I seen online and even got a chance to meet some of the friends of the show.That would be Jimmy in a dress.

The show was good and by 7 pm local time I was a tad ginned up shall we say. So Damein and I didn’t stay for the whole show he needed to get to the other side of town to his hotel.

We had a good time and didn’t get into to much trouble,till we saw the food tuck selling chilly cheese dogs. I will regret that in the morning I thought and I did. But for Vegas that’s nothing to regret to much.

Nonchalant About Roma

So my wife tells me we can’t come to Rome anymore because I’m not a excited about it as I used to be. We are here for 2 weeks and this is my 5th trip to Rome and I have been a tour guide so many times I hope its just a tired of running around thing.

Damein and Emma

This time we are here with my son and his girlfriend Emma and I think they are enjoying themselves. He got a chance to have his birthday in another country, so both the kids have been here now. We told Alex and Damein one trip each the next time its on you to come back.

One of the things we did different this time was rent an apartment for the 2nd week very near the Pantheon and it has no lift.Bad idea, 45 steps to my room and 65 steps to my sister-in-law’s room.Now that is after 20K steps a day looking around at everything else.

As I write this i’m at one of our favorite place’s the Di Rienzo in the plaza with the Pantheon,we have coming here every night after walking and the stall seems to have adopted us. One of the waiters I remembered from when my daughter was here and I found out he has been working here for 14 years.

Yesterday we were off for a fast tour of Florence another city I love and today they are off to Tivoli,Italy. I felt a little bad this morning like I was catching a cold so it was nap day for me.You need nap days when you are here.

A new year of trips

Well, the end of the year has come and gone and the next 2 vacations are already set up. This year is about the kids the first part of the year, Disney World is the first trip ( have I told you how I feel about Florida ). The grandson was impressed with air flight on his first flight until he found the in-flight entertainment.

The next trip will be back to Rome with my son Damein Berry, this will be his first time to Rome and he is bringing the girlfriend Emma Christmas. Her first time to Europe and Italy. She has been hinting that a ring would be so romantic in Italy. It’s a trap.

My hope for this trip is after showing them around a bit taking some time in a cafe to sit and relax. Damein picked up the tube in London so fast the subway in Rome will be no problem.

That time of the year again

So for the next few month’s, I will be traveling quite a bit. We have the Tuscany region first and I will be doing some driving for the first time in Italy. I have driven in the UK, Scotland, and Ireland ( to the left to the left to the left..left..left ). So it should not be a problem, the rest of the crew we are going with says I should get an International license. When I asked about it at the rental company about having one in Ireland he just giggled and sent us on my way.

BTW if you go a barber in Ireland make sure they speak English if you ask for a “trim” of your beard. What was I talking about…

The next trip will be to Florida in February ( Dinsey world ) I so wish it wasn’t in Florida ( read previous blogs about Florida ).

And then in March back to Roma with my sister in law and son and girlfriend, it will be the sons and the girlfriend to Italy. Not sure if I posted about the last time my sister in law took a trip to Italy with us ( long story with crying ). My son is so excited about going he has been asking about everything we can go see.

I would like to post the photos and story’s of the trip’s here and not on Facebook, let’s see how that goes…
