In 1996, Sharon and I spent two weeks in Italy for our honeymoon. Although there are lots and lots of places in the world that are on my list to visit, Sharon talked me into heading back to Italy for the next two plus weeks. Frankly, she did not have to twist my arm much. We are going to cover some of the some ground that we did 16 years ago with a mix of new spots.
Up early, we caught an 8:20 a.m. five hour flight from Sacramento to Philadelphia. With a short turn around between flights of about an hour and a half, we scrambled to get a bite to eat. Once we got on the plane and out on to the taxiway, the plane sat for almost an hour due to thunderstorms. We finished the day somewhere over the Atlantic at 40,000 feet and 600 mph.
