I think we are going to cruise to Rome, from Florida! It’s NOT expensive! And my sister and brother-in-law might go with us! For an inside cabin it’s not much more than airfare to Rome. And, it’s 14 days. A week at sea to get across, and then, stops in Portugal, the Azores, and 2 stops in Spain before you get to the port that is an hour and a half from Rome. Then we’d spend about 2 weeks in Italy, and fly home from there.
I’m breathless! 2 weeks at sea??? I’d be in heaven.
It’s kind of amazing how we are actually able to manifest dreams, isn’t it. I’ve always believed that I’d get to Italy. Once I realized that was where I wanted to go, I just knew I’d go. I didn’t know how, or with who, if anyone. But I knew I’d go. My sister had given me the name of tour companies when I moved down here, that have educational tours for older folks like me. She told me there were lots of single women on those trips. I’d hoped I might have a significant other to go with, because hey, if you’re going to go to a place where pleasure is a way of life, a place as sensuous and beautiful as Italy, then I would guess that naturally, most people would want to go with someone they loved.
But, really, I left all the questions up to the Universe. I just said, I’m going to Italy when I retire.
To have a cruise there added in, a 14 days cruise, is seriously over the top.
Thank you, Universe.
Now we will begin to fine tune the trip. What places do we really want to see? And how much will hotel and food be costing us once we are off the ship. And tours. I think we need to at least find local tours for each city, if not a larger one that will take us around the country to the places we want to see.
But it’s beginning to be more than a seed I’ve planted. It’s germinating. It’s sending out roots and beginning to break ground. Wow. Kind of blows me away.
In other news, Dan is thinking of running a gas line from the meter to the back of my house, so we can have a grill by my deck that is plumbed right into natural gas, and wouldn’t need a tank. This morning he mowed my lawn and I did some weeding of the beds in the front of my house. He pruned back my hibiscus. In an old life he had a landscaping business. Lucky for me. We went to open mic night last night, and boy I was fading fast by the end, after being up in the hot tub at 2 am, lol. We have plans to go to a show in town here, put on by one of the guys who performs at open mic night.
Loving my life. Love and light to all.
