Our last real road trip was in January 2007 (after a long flight from Istanbul to San Fransisco)when we drove in 5 days from San Francisco to Phoenix, Arizona, from there to Albuquerque, New Mexico and from there to Las Vegas in Nevada and back to San Francisco.
This time we will fly to Milan, where O. has her annual meeting with GM’s of her company world wide. And their partners, mainly women…. We will have some good days in the Ritz Milan, I can guarantee that. From there we will drive to Lyon and Paris in France, stay there a couple of days and travel to Brussels and Amsterdam where I have some business to do. Then we drive back to Milan and take a day train to Venice. And fly back to Istanbul.. O. has been to many European countries and places in the America’s and the Far and Middle East, but she never made it to France, Belgium and Venice Italy. Yes, she traveled to Rome and Florence on a cold winter day during Christmas when everything was closed! For me is it since 2002, to see, the countries where I lived in the past, France, Italy, Belgium, back. And the Netherlands? Didn’t have been there since May 2007, and that’s a long time if you compare it to my visits to my home country between May 2006 and May 2007: 8 times, among other foreign trips. I guess I wrote and blogged too much!
