|Subject: Re: Rome and the Italian Seaside|
To start with the last questions first, this GTG of the family would
probably be either next summer or the following summer. It's difficult to
take children from school for such a long period of time.
And the other questions, I don't think it would be necessary to be very
close to Rome. We would be willing to travel, either by car or train or
bus, or a combination of those. Maybe by the time we are ready to get down
to brass tacks planning, we will ask directions about how to know exactly
where to go for the hidden places. We have traveled enough in England to
know the go past the Pub on the right which is just past a row of cottages,
turn left and carry straight on until you come to a ruined castle on the
right...it's easy, you can't miss it! (and it never is easy, and we
usually miss it on the first go-round!
