We are packed and ready for our ride to the airport!



We departed Columbus for our flight to Atlanta with a close to an on time departure.  Our beloved Buckeyes were playing Nebraska at home.  We watched a lot of the game sitting in the airport.  As we took off, “The Shoe” was in the distance.  Go Buckeyes!swCq0nFs

We got our luggage and met Romina, our tour guide for our trip!  We boarded our bus with Caesar as our driver and arrived at our hotel around 2:45 PM. vMQll+rg We checked into our hotel, the Hotel Michelangelo, in Sorrento, Italy.

The hotel was located on the main street of Sorrento which was convenient for exploring the city.

Our room had a balcony which we enjoyed!

We were in bed early this evening because it had been a very long two days with little sleep!
