All booked!

Today I finalized our hotel plans for Italy. I had put things off due to school getting started and had forgotten all about needing a place to stay :) I spent 4 hrs. at my parents house last night getting the rooms for Milan and Florence. Today I booked the ones for Rome. We are staying at 2 different hotels in Rome since we will start and finish there. My sister helped with our Venice rooms a few weeks ago. It is always hard to book a hotel you have never seen or heard of. We had great luck with our hotel in London and I am hoping for the same results. I rely a lot on tripadvisor.com when booking hotels. They have hotel reviews. That is always helpful although some travelers opinions are a bit different than mine they have been pretty reliable in the past. So we are one step closer to our Roman Holiday!! BTW the pic is of our hotel in Venice, too fun :)

PLANNING the trip is half the fun! (If not more) I could spend HOURS researching and looking at maps. You guys are going to have so much fun. I'm not bold enough yet to buy plane tickets in advance. If we can get past these elections and the economy smooths out... maybe... just maybe!

Cool!! Someday, we hope to go to Italy. By the way, someone here told us that there is a train that goes from Venice to Verona, in case you're interested.
