Work takes me to Italy next. Learning about the best places to stay, tours to make sure you have a great experience and the only way to travel on your time schedule. A couple nights in Rome, then on to Naples, Pompeii and Sorrento.

    Trip was awesome and when the lost luggage shows up, you unpack it and everything is fine, it must mean that the vacation is over. 😂
    But kudos to Kent from AA baggage service who brought my bag all the way to King, NC!

    Now to pack for this weekend's training sessions, Superbowl of Knowledge!

    JFK has got to be the worst for Intl connections. Guess there wasn't enough time for transferring the luggage to our connection. Well at least not mine. Just made it to the gate for my final leg.

    Could my arrival and departure gates been further away from each other... probably but it I had to hustle to catch a train then 10 minutes too late to change seats. Row 52 it is then.
    Long flight ahead to JFK, hope I can catch a nap.

    Last night, fun night!

    When in Sorrento, you must do the cheese making, pizza making, and learn the limoncello making process. What a blast. Funniest part was the drive after we got off the coach and into a 4 pax vehicle cross between a moped and a golf cart. But the best part is just like an amusement park ride:" keep your hands inside the car at all times" and they mean it!
    Sadly we had to say goodbye to Rossella who has been with us all week. Thank you for showing us some of the best things in Italy especially your home city of Sorrento.
    4am comes early... so good night!

    Sadly our last day... but what a beautiful view to wake up to. Today we will see a few more hotels, indulging in a gelato for lunch and walk it off by supporting the local economy! I think I have a few Euros left and a bit of space in my luggage! Ciao for now. This is the view from my room.

    Lunch in Positano was wonderful, as all meals have been, then back to the hotel for a rest (for some people) but a few of us enjoyed the patio with wine and a beautiful sunset!
    Off for a couple of hotel/villa tours. Now enjoying a simpler dinner. Off for a walk thru the historical district to window shopping!Read more

    Amazing drive south toward the Amalfi coast leads us here. Views, views, and more views of this city built in the limestone of the mountain. Hiked down to the Bay of Salerno. Even dipped my toes in the water, which felt great. The sand is volcanic with small stones were rough.
