Our journey today started in Kansas City with our flight leaving at 4:40pm this afternoon. Abby is a teacher at Bishop Ward high school so she came straight from school. I already had the day off work so I spent the morning with friends and then had lunch with my dad. The most eventful part… Read More “It’s gonna be great!” 🙃 – Day 1 (Friday 3/10)

We got up this morning and went downstairs for breakfast, then we went back up and grabbed our bags and checked out of the Institue (they had a room up front where we were able to leave our bags).

Celina and I slept in a little today and didn’t get up until 8:00 which was fantastic, we have been going at it pretty hard these past few days so it was nice to be able to sleep in just a bit. Then we went downstairs for breakfast. Since today is Good Friday we knew… Read More Good Friday
We woke up this morning around 7:00am and I have to say that may have been the best nights of sleep I have had in quite a long time! I am sure a lot of it just has to do with the fact that I hadn’t been able to sleep lying flat in 48 hours… Read More Pilgrimage or Spa?
The last we left off we had just boarded our plane. The trip was pretty uneventful, I fell asleep pretty quickly, but woke up for dinner and my free cocktail! 😁 I’ve got to say, for airplane food, it wasn’t so bad. I had a chicken with polenta, Caesar salad, shrimp cocktail, crackers with cheese… Read More We made it!
We were up at 5:00 this morning and at the airport by 6. Flight took off at 7:00am and we went from KC to Atlanta. I was feeling quite tired this morning and just as I was about to fall asleep on the plane, the very nice girl sitting in the window seat next… Read More Here we go!!
I woke up this morning and could not believe that in less than 24 hours I would be on my way to Italy!!!

I started my morning with… Read More The Last Hurrah Before The First Hurrah
