Bucket List

Iím getting very excited. DW and I are leaving for Italy this Tuesday. There are a number of big items on my Bucket List that will be taken care of on this trip.

Visit Pompeii.
Visit Venice.
Climb to the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa (294 steps so at my age Iíll give this a serious try anyway).
Audience with the Pope.
See the Sistine Chapel and St. Peterís Basilica.

We will be visiting other Italian cities and many other major tourist sites, but they werenít on my Bucket List. I've been working on my list since 1999 and with this trip I only have a few more things left on my list.

Mileage will probably suck with that 6.4 towing in open water.

What an amazing trip you have planned. I done most of those things many moons ago, but would do a repeat in a heartbeat. Enjoy Italy.

Enjoy your trip to Italy. One of our favorite countries. Are you planning to drive or train it when you are there?

We will be taking trains between the cities and using public transportation (busses) to get around to the various tourist sites within the cities. Should be interesting to say the least.

The trains are a great way to travel city to city and definitely our preferred method. Much more relaxing - Too many crazy fast drivers over there for this country boy.

But, a rental car is not too bad if you wanted to explore the countryside. Its actually not too bad out of the cities.

Have fun and have a great trip!
