Trip to Italy

We are planning a much long-awaited trip to Italy. It's been 7 years since our last and only visit and to say we are excited at the thought of returning is an understatement!
Our plans include Rome, Amalfi and Venice! I think I'm most excited for Venice since we had to cancel that leg of our trip before. I'm going to keep a log here of all the places I need to remember to go.

I really want to see Ravello and Atrani while on the Amalfi Coast. So if you happen to drop by and have any suggestions. Please leave a comment!

This is a place in Ravello that looks out of this world! Perhaps we can go for dinner and just to walk the grounds. I can't wait.

I love this about Austin

Check out a little Shakespear under the stars for FREE at the Zilker Hillside Theatre (just across from Barton Springs) this Friday, Saturday, Sunday at 8pm. Head over with a group of friends, have a picnic, bring some drinks (on the d-l) and enjoy a beautiful evening replete with fireflies and FREE Shakespeare!

You know you can just kiss my #@%

What in the world is wrong with people? I wonder where some people get off thinking something is any of their damn business. These damn message board people..I mean, you really think you have some right to tell me what to do with my time on my trip? You are soooooooooo self rightous and condescending. If I post a question that you don't have an answer to, hey I don't need your snide little comments.

Sorry, needed to vent. :)

mas mexico por favor!

My mexican adventure can't come soon enough. Not much longer to go, thank goodness! Here's a photo of the view from the hotel we'll be staying at in Zihua.

Mexico trip

Well, this looks different. It's been a terrifically long time since I've updated my blog. In fact, I couldn't even remember by user name or password. Thank goodness someone else stored that info for me. So here I am again.

I'm in trip planning mode lately. Heading to Mexico soon. Zihuatanejo this time. It will be so nice to sit back on the beach and enjoy a cerveza. I've been reading this blog
to learn more about the area. What I've learned? Perhaps Mexico isn't as safe as it used to appears there might be a bit of corruption when it comes to the gov't types...go figure. I guess drug trafficing is becoming more and more of an issue. And considering the local police have to pay for every round of ammo they fire...I guess they don't chase after the bads guys very often. Hoping we'll be safe. Also, the people on this board can be bitchy.
But that seems common amongst msg boards. They all know best and some can be downright mean. And don't go saying anything even remotely negative about the place they live. Even though they complain themselves. I guess they don't want to hear it from someone else. to hit publish and see what becomes of my blogging attempt. Here's to 2007! May I not pull my hair out every time I log on to this thing.
