To celebrate our 40th Anniversary, Dan and I took off on a tour of Italy via a Trafalgar bus tour. Usually we like to cruise, so this was a departure from our usual mode of travel. Every two days we packed up and moved locations. It was far from a “relaxed” vacation, but it was WONDERFUL! According to my trusty Fitbit we walked 82 miles over a 12- day period. We drove 1, 183 miles and experienced, heat, drizzle, rain, cold, and humidity. Oh yeah, and a few mosquito bites along the Tiber river! A couple from our church joined us as they were also celebrating a milestone event, and had always wanted to see Italy. So the four of us, and 44 new “friends” hopped on a tour bus with fabulous Italian guide named Gianmarco.
This is the first in a series of posts that will take you on our journey through Italy just as we saw it. We will spare you the thousands of pictures we took, and include a couple of favorites. We hope this series will inspire you to embark on your own adventure. Being retired is wonderful!
