Spent the day reviewing our trip itinerary, packing and cleaning house. I'm pleased to report all my stuff will fit in a 21" Carry-on and a back-back. (Will check the bag so I don't have to worry about the liquids restrictions.) Traveling light this time - it helps that it will be summer so the clothes are thin & light weight. Hope I don't regret packing so light ... oh, yeah ... I could go shopping!!!!

Checked the weather for Rome - clear, mid-80's during the day and in the low to mids 60's at night. Perfect!
