I wish I could upload photos from my trip, but the cruise ship’s Internet cafe doesn’t allow it. So once I’m home and settled, I plan to upload a few highlights. Of course, the funny “outtake” photos are probably the best… and we’ve had several of those! Even a few that could be used as blackmail should I ever decide to run for public office. Not inappropriate, but highly embarrassing and amusing.
Yesterday was Sicily and the mafia… today was Naples and Pompeii (which I loved!). Tomorrow is good old Rome, and then Florence, and then Barcelona! I’m sad to think that my fabulous vacation may be winding to a close… it will be hard to go back to the real world (which I will have to do just a few hours after I land… it should make for a very interesting first day back at work!). At the moment, I have no idea what day of the week it is, and it really doesn’t matter. I haven’t done any heavy-duty thinking in over a week… and it’s wonderful! Memories of stress from school and work faded days ago.
And… I have eaten my weight in pizza and ice cream. Luckily, we have also been good about hitting the gym.
Now I’m off to read a book before a late-night comedy show. I love vacation.
