is one of my favorite things. I don’t think I’ll be doing much of it this year, but I have HUGE plans for next year. Italy for our 25th anniversary, New York (of course) and Arizona to see my brother and a dear friend who’s moving there this summer.
Italy is being tough to decide on where to go. I would normally prefer to pick one place and spend a lot of time getting to know it, but the reality is that it’s taking me over 50 years to get to Italy, so on the off chance I don’t make it back there, I want to make sure I see everything I want to see. On the other hand, I don’t have an entire summer or longer to see everything. So. How to fit in Venice (I just need one day to see the sights and ride a gondola and I’m good), Verona (Romeo and Juliet), Padua (Kiss Me Kate), Florence, Pisa (Just for the picture holding up the tower), Siena(Letters to Juliet), Montepulciano and Volterra (Twilight), Rome, Pompeii, Positano (Only You)… I could go on and on. I’m guessing I’ll settle for Rome, Florence and Venice with a side trip to Verona. Gee, poor thing. Hahahhahaa
Of course I never tire of New York, but I still have a list of places to visit… The Cloisters, Columbia University, The Natural History Museum, The Seaport Museum, The Guggenheim (only once – I’m not a huge fan of most modern art, but I think the building is cool.) The Jewish Tenement Museum and quite a few movie sites. Oh and I’ve still got a few places to eat that are a must (I’ve done Sardi’s, the Plaza, and the Russian Tea Room). I missed out on Tavern on the Green, but that still leaves La Cirque, Latece and the Rainbow Room.
