Our World Tuesday: it's going to change


pdclipart.org
We're going to Europe again.

My husband and I are about to have a transoceanic adventure.

We're crossing the Atlantic onboard the Carnival Destiny, from her present base in Miami, Florida, to her new home in the Mediterranean.

Then we can add Italy to the list of European places we've visited.
 
So far, our European travels have included Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary, with a quick stop for a few photos at the train station in Luxembourg on our way from Switzerland to The Netherlands.
 
We disembark in Venice and, after visiting there and taking plenty of photos of my husband's dream destination, we'll be traveling by train as far south as Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii, then flying home from Rome.

We sail next week from Miami, so this will be my last visit to Our World Tuesday for a while. I'm hoping to be able to post some photos from Italy, however.
 
We aren't going to take in a basketball game in Miami, as we've done a couple of times before...our first ocean crossing will be excitement enough!

Above, the jump to start overtime between the Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers, January 29, 2005. It was my first professional basketball game, and it was exciting alright, but Miami lost in overtime.

Oh WOW! Lucky you!!! Didn't you just get back from a trip? I hope you're completely recovered from that last one. Art will be so jealous when I tell him. He would especially like to see Venice and Pompeii.

A great tick list there Kay but I couldn't find Stalmine or Knott End on it? Hope you enjoy your next trip. Stay in shape LOL.
