We’re in Brussels

Monday, September 25th, 2006

After a two-hour delay in Chicago, we are finally in Brussels. We missed our connecting flight to Rome but may be able to make our train to Orvieto. If we miss our train, we have to purchase new tickets and arrive later to our destination. Dad is picking us up in Orvieto so hopefully he’s reading this and will plan for our possible delay.

And we’re off!

In just a few short hours, we will be leaving for the airport. I cannot believe I am actually going to Italy – today!! I will try my best to blog and keep up with everyone while I’m on the road.

Ci vediamo pił tarde!
