Tentative Itinerary June 2 - 24, 1999
Last year, my trip to Europe was wonderful. I had a great traveling companion and I got to see a lot of places I have always wanted to see. But I was frustrated by the fact that we spent so much time traveling and not enough time experiencing the places I was visiting. Why did I do that? Mainly because I was unsure if I would ever again have the opportunity to see that part of the world.
Well, fate is kind and I get to go back, and this time I'm doing things different. I am going to stay in Italy and concentrate on the two areas I never got to see last year: Rome and the Amalfi Coast. I considered stopping in Florence for a couple of days, but even that seemed too frantic for this laid-back SoB. I want to stay in one place long enough to meet people and make new friends. Plus, the juxtaposition of busy bustling Rome with a few days on a lovely, serene Mediterranian beach strikes me as a nice balance.
