On the eve of my journey to Rome
30.03.2012 - 30.03.2012 8 °C
The adventure is about to begin. My boarding passes are all printed. Just praying no issues with Air Canada or other delays. Paul and Suzanne arrived fresh from Texas and moved in this afternoon, so once again my house will be well looked after while I am away. Their marriage plans are moving forward having finally heard from the USA government. No final permissions yet.
Heading out now for drinks and various celebrations ...starting with the basic TGIF!
First flight is to Toronto at 8:30 a.m.
My mission in Rome is to stymie the dreaded pickpockets. I am living in terror of them after reading and hearing too many ugly stories. I sure hope to succeed. I am taking every precaution I have heard about. I gather that pick pocketing is a perfected art form in Italy so hopefully I can avoid that nonsense!
