Sorry it has taken me so long to respond... I didn't realize that you had written back! :) I did a tour through a different company when I was 15 so this should be a whole new experience. I am 28 and my friend Missi that is coming with me is 24. I work at a bank and I am also a server at a restaurant and Missi works at a restaurant in Seattle. Our flight gets into Rome on Aug 20 at 12:30PM and we will be heading to a hotel called Degli Aranci... it's nothing fancy, I just booked it because it was close to the hotel we are supposed to stay at with the tour group. It will be nice to kind of get a feel for the place before meeting up with the group. I looked up a couple of restaurants in the area too and I can't read a thing on the menu! :) This will be an adventure I'm sure! I can't wait... Keep in touch and maybe we can meet up that first night we are in Rome!
That sounds awesome that you are living abroad! I live in Boise Id and my friend that is coming with me lives in Seattle, WA USA. We are heading over to Rome a dazy early because when we had to change our flights from the original tour we were on it was just how it worked out. i have been doing some research and I have been in contact with someone through tripadvisor that went on this same tour. She has some interesting insight about her experience... She said the hotel in Rome is awful. I got a list of the hotels fromt he company and have been looking into them. If you give me your email address I can forward it to you. It will be an adventure if nothing else. :) Have you ever done a tour like this? How old are you? Are you a professional traveler or do you have a career? So glad someone joined this and is in contact! If you want to be facebook friends you can look me up... Lisa Herriot.
Yeah we are heading to Italy for the week before hand to have a look around in the north etc.
We're both 21 and haven't done a tour like this before. Most of our traveling has been this year when we've been doing weekend/short trips to places around Europe when we could fit it in with our studying. All the same questions to you..lol. :)
So looking forward to this though!!
