Goodbye for now!

August 14, 2008

This is it! Tomorrow I leave early in the morning for Ontario to visit my grandparents. On Wednesday, August 20th my plane departs for Rome (!!!); we’ll be heading straight to Palermo, Sicily for 3 days. Then we’ll take the train back to Rome for 5 days before staying in Florence for another 3 days. After that, its 3 days in Venice and then back to Rome for just one night. I’ll be returning home to Canada late on Friday September 5th.

All of this traveling around means that I likely won’t be on the computer at all until I return in September, so I unfortunately won’t be blogging myself or reading your blogs during this time. However, my dad has very kindly agreed to write up some guest posts! And he will be responding to any comments you leave (providing, of course, that the Internet doesn’t try to mess with him or anything).

Have a wonderful next few weeks everyone, and I’ll be back in early September to tell you about my adventures and return to regular health blogging! I will likely return with several extra pounds around my middle (hello delicious Italian food!), excessive amounts of photographs, a considerably lighter bank account, extreme excitement about the trip as well as moving out as soon as I get home (we get possession on September 1st!), and much anticipation regarding what all of you have been up to while I’m gone. Have fun and stay healthy:)


  1. Have fun! Wear sunscreen!

    I’m totally jealous, but looking forward to hearing all about it!

  2. Safe travels and have fun!

  3. Oh, you lucky, lucky girl!! Have a great time – sample all the local cuisine, see everything, do more, but above all else, have a safe trip!

    And how cool is your dad to take care of your blog for you while you’re away! He just might become addicted like the rest of us, though, and refuse to relinquish it when the time comes! πŸ™‚

  4. Have a great time…stay active! πŸ™‚

    Bag Lady- can't wait to sample all of the local cuisine. And he's mentioned the idea of having his own cooking blog because he DOES love to cook… I guess we'll see how busy he is in his retirement as to if he starts up his own blog (I wants mine back! hehe).

    Mark- hopefully there will be some active-ness between sightseeing and eating:)
