Our Europe Vacation Was FabulousApril 18, 2014
Hope all is well with you. It has been awhile and we will need to speak and catch up!
I guess everything was so hectic when I got back (and still is) we never connected. The trip was fabulous as always and the hotel in Positano was just perfect – mainly for the view and huge terrace. Everything went smooth – except for a little hiccup in Rome on our Coliseum tour. The taxi took us to the wrong pick-up spot and we were late trying to find the right place. It was frustrating speaking to the tour company who basically said we were out of luck and unfortunately we were leaving Rome the next morning. But with my persistence, I found the tour and talked the people in the Coliseum to let us join them and it all worked out well. The Rome Cavalier was also perfect. We didn’t mind the location not be directly in Rome as it was nice to be somewhat removed from the city and there was a convenient shuttle. We ended up being able to stay in the same room all three nights (if you remember you contacted them asking if this was possible since we used our points for 2 nights and paid for the other and therefore were going to have to move each night) They gave us a upgraded room with balcony with a spectacular view overlooking the city of Rome and the Sistine Chapel . Which brings us to that tour – also wonderful and nice to be there before the crowds. Capri, Amalfi coast (we bought a beautiful table there which was shipped to us in Dec.) Pompeii, Barcelona (rained that day so instead of going to the park – we went to Casa Batllo!) We even go to the market in Barcelona – since it was closed on Sunday we went early Monday morning before our flight to Ibiza to get our sautéed mushrooms! Of course our time in Ibiza with our son was also incredible. The hotel was in great location near him. He was off during the time we were there and really showed us around the island – places we wouldn’t even know existed. Also rented a boat and captain for a day and went to Fermentera and had a wonderful lunch on the beach. A surprise day at a spa he planned for us – La Hacienda – amazing place. If you don’t know about it – check it out!
Anyway, as you get the picture, the trip was another “trip of a lifetime”. Thanks again for making it become a reality for us and doing such a great job coordinating all hotels, travel, tours, etc. and taking all the stress out of the planning which when you wait until the last minute like I tend to do – it’s even more overwhelming ( and would not happen) without your help.
THANK YOU AGAIN, SHARON!
