28. Just made it on train.
Fast train to Rome, number 9413′ lane 3′ car 7′ seat 12 a window. It is the back of the train and takes me a while to walk it. Last car. Almost back of train last car. A man helps me lift luggage on train. His woman friend watches as she has her last cigarette. Lots of people here smoke I find. Anyway, as I find my seat, she is seated across from me and talking on her phone.
There are announcements I cannot hear over her talking in Italian. People are still getting on. It looks like a beautiful and comfy seat. Overhead I place my red suitcase, umbrella, green pillow, and lift my grey hard suitcase. I have my lulu lemon purse carry on with iPad and documents on my lap. A table is in front of me for ease of typing.
We have not left yet and I am hopeful I am on the right train. I loved the last minute chat with the ladies from Cunard cruise and the time zipped on past. I look forward to the sights I will see today and the excitement building as I get closer to Steve and the next cruise adventure. We are moving. Ahhhhhhhhh ….. Ohhhhhhhhh …… Here I go!
I can see the Cunard ship out the window and say a silent fond goodbye, ciao.
Wish you were here ….
