Vacation?

How I would love to go on a vacation right now. Its been cold here in Colorado, and it would be great to be able to go somewhere warm and beautiful. Italy has always been a place I would love to visit.

I checked out Expedia.com to see what kind of deals are available to fly from Denver to Italy. I have always wanted to see Palermo, Italy. On Expedia, I found a vacation package, leaving DIA and arriving in Palermo with reservations at Sport Club Portorais Hotel. The Sport club is in Sirini , Italy, is beachfront and 5 kilometres from the medieval Carini Castle. 182_castello_cariniFor 8 nights, it came to 2,283.48. That sounds fabulous! If only I had the money 😦

 

 

So I can’t afford Italy, how about Ft. Meyers, FLA?

Warm and sunny, and a bit closer to home. On Expedia, I found a flight and hotel reservation, staying at the Neptune Inn, which overlooks 300 Ft of white sand beachesneptune-inn-ft-meyers.                                                                                                                                           The total cost of roundtrip tickets and hotel reservations comes to 2613.50$ (for 2 people for 7 nights)

So its cheaper to go to Palermo, Italy? The funny thing is, its a straight thru flight to Italy, the trip to Ft. Meyers has a layover in Dallas!! That would leave me an additional 330$ for spending in Italy!

Guess I better start playing the power ball!
