Niagara Falls is a wonder!
"Buffalo to Roma then Europe via the rails!"
On 4 February I flew out of Buffalo International Airport and landed at Roma Leonardo di Vinci Airport and was met by my business partner and his American-opera singer-girlfriend. Lucky me! I was a guest in their flat and they were so hospitable and took such wonderful care of me.
After 14 February I departed by rail for the rest of Europe to visit old friends and to find and make new friends. Never go to Europe without your Eurailpass! It is fantastic and saves so much money! Only trouble is you MUST be an USA Citizen.
"Next trip is 15 January through 15 September '03"
I will fly out of Buffalo and arrive in London to meet several chaps to whom I have been chatting for many months now. I am hoping for love and more...., but in any case, I leave after a week to ten days from Stansted via Ryan Air (OMG! Is this air carrier the cheapest thing going!) to Mialno. Where another chat friend is located. An Italian with blond hair!! Now, this one wants to melt my heart!
From there I will travel by train to Verona (Home of Romeo and Juliete) for the 30th Birthday of another chat friend! He says he is in love with me, but he is TOO young for me.
"On 15 September 2003 I must return"
Ok, I have been everywhere and done everything! I am hoping and praying that I have found an apartment to rent, and that I can rent it each year for a few years. The real dream is to stay in my American apartment from mid September to mid January and some place wonderful in Europe. Next year I hope to be staying the eight months in Paris (well, 20 minutes north)!
