We have begun our trip to Italy! I’m not sure about you but we begin our holiday the moment we step out the door. Catching the train and the flight are all part of the journey for us.
We love the adventure of travelling and this trip has had the added bonus of starting off in the AMEX Airport Lounge. We haven’t visited an airport lounge before and I must admit it’s a pretty cool way to start our trip. There is unlimited champagne, wine, beer cheese and hot food. We could get use this.
Ahead of us is 24hrs and 30min of travelling time before we touch down in Rome, and while we might arrive a little tired and smelly due to 40hrs from our last shower, we will certainly arrive excited and ready to explore and experience the sites and sounds, along with the tastes of Italian wine and food.
Melina asked me before I left what I was looking forward to the most? Firstly I am looking forward to having uninterrupted and hurried time with Carolyn, I’m looking forward to building new memories and shared experiences. I’m certainly looking forward to taking lots of photos and doing lots of walks. I’m looking forward to just being away.
Next stop Italy!
