And We’re Off! (OK… I’m Off… ;) )

It’s here, it’s here!  Finally!  After all this time, I am finally  making my way to my dream destination of Tuscany, Italy.  This has been a long time coming.  Of course I was last minute everything,  Booking my Airbnbs, getting last-minute items and by 1:30, was still packing my bag!  Considering I had to leave the house by 2:00 pm, I’d say that was cutting it a “tad” close, don’t you think?

I was going to try to use the Über but got flushed twice.  Hmmm… By the time a taxi was called and arrived, it was already 2:15. Cutting it close again. They say to be at the airport 2 hours before take-off time.  That meant arriving at 3:05.  I cannot believe it, considering the amount of traffic we got, but we made it by 3:15!  Cost me a bloody fortune, though. $75.55… eesh… if it costs that much to get home, it would have been a better bargain to use the Park ‘n Fly!  Ah well.  Now I don’t have to worry about losing my car key!  Silver linings, Baby!

So, here I am at Pierre-Elliott Trudeau Airport in Dorval, sitting waiting for flight LX87 to Zurich, Switzerland.

I am so excited! I have a friend in Zurich so I took an 11-hour layover so he could show me around.  Way to start a vacation, eh?

Hope I don’t bore you all to death with my daily postings (considering I haven’t written but one post in how many months?)

See ya tomorrow!

  2. Wonderful, finally your trip of your dreams. I hope everything turns out even better than you imagine, and I’m sure you’ll be serenaded by a lot of charmin Italian men.

  3. Hi, Dale! I’m SO glad you’re taking a vacation. You really probably need to get away for awhile. I miss your fiction stories, but I have missed a few deadlines myself. Anyway, I’ll be looking forward to your blogs and see what all adventures you will find there. 🙂

    Love the picture, too. Va-va-VOOM! 😉
    Have a great trip!
