I tell you it was definitely an experience! What was funny to me was the kid's reaction to seeing the colliseum in Rome. They really got into it. D/S now wants a Gladiator costume for Christmas and was quite upset I didn't buy him one there on the spot. We were quite awed by the Italian countryside as well and the Alps had their first snowfall of the season. It was breathtakingly beautiful to see the snow covered peaks on our way to Monte Carlo and Monaco from Savona.
OK now here's a mystery... why can't I find a wash cloth in European hotels? Oh and d/d was so excited by the small sink next to the big sink, I had to explain that the little sink was a bidet and not used for washing hands
