From there we go to Milan just for two nights. We have three things to do there.
- Take Casey to see Da Vinci's Last Supper as Casey believes he has a connection with Leonardo--along with Michaelangelo and Picasso.
- Take him to the roof of the duomo as that is quite an amazing experience and place to be
- Have lunch with friend Sylvia who is sometimes known as Alice.
After our Lake/Milan excursion, we return to Viticcio for two nights, deposit Casey with Camilla's family and Ken and I then head for 17 days in Croatia. It will be the first vacation without grandson in several years. I suspect we will end up missing him and the dimensions he adds to our travel experiences. And I am sure that he will have a difficult time even though he will be 24/7 with his buddy Camilla.
From Croatia we return to Greve for a week, then spend a week with good friends Nico and Elena at Sant' Antonio in Montepulciano. Casey and their daughter Sofia have been friends for many years now. From there we go to Bevagna in Umbria for two nights at the lovely Genius Loci which is owned by another friend, Mary. And then...........home to San Diego.
So that's what's happening with us. Casey and I will keep our blogs going--just not as often. A good way to know when we update so that you don't need to check frequently (or infrequently as the case may be) is to sign up for a feed which tells you when a new post is up. There is a link "Subscribe in a Reader" on the right side bars of our blogs. You can click there and select a means of being notified. Then again, just check-in when the thought strikes.
