Sep 22, 2013 - Back to MI

On this day we drove from Buchanan, Michigan to New Hudson, Michigan where we settled into our campsite at Haas Lake Campground. We have been staying in this campground the past few times we have been in the Detroit area because it is fairly convenient to many of the places we usually go and to the folks we like to visit. In the afternoon, after we had a motorhome parked, we left to go in to Livonia to visit with Lois. As usual, she was happy to see us. We sat and talked for quite a while and then when it was time to have supper, we all...

Feb 28, 2012 - The Day Has Arrived! (Juuuuussst Kidding!)

Well I was suppose to head out today, but as I walked up to the Lufthansa desk to check my bag the lady informed me that they were canceling the flight due to a strike by the air traffic controllers in Germany. Because I got my ticket through continental and with air miles, Lufthansa could not help me. I was the first informed, many people had already gone to the gate (Blessing!)! I had to call continental, then get transferred to the miles department.... lots of waiting on hold! 2 hours later I finally got confirmation to leave tomorrow...

Nov 3, 2010 - trip to southern italy!

Our week trip to southern Italy was definitely a perfect break from classes and homework. We were able to have fun and relax and not worry about too much. I roomed in a triple with Cara and our friend Lucy, who normally lives in a double right next to use at the Hotel Tiziano in Rome. We definitely took advantage of the slow pace for the week, and caught up on our sleep! We went to bed at 6:30pm on Tuesday when we arrived at the Hotel Prati... at 11pm on Wednesday... at 7:30pm on Thursday... and at 7pm on Friday. We were always well rested,...

Oct 23, 2010 - letter from dr prebys

Here is the letter and itinerary we got from Portia Prebys, the head of Saint Mary's Rome program... Dear Students, For the trip to the Naples area, on Tuesday, October 26, we will leave the Hotel Tiziano promptly at 7:0am, for our full day in Pompeii. You all need to have your passports on your person (not down in the hold of the motor coach). Once the luggage is stored in the hold of the motor coach, the hold will not be opened until we reach the hotel where we are residing for our four nights in Naples. On our way to Pompeii, we will...

Oct 22, 2010 - a weekend in the states

Last Thursday, October 7, I booked a last minute flight to come home and was in Michigan for the weekend... I landed in Detroit at midnight on Friday and flew out of Detroit at 4pm on Monday. I felt it was very necessary for me to be home with my family during that very sad and very difficult time. Saturday was Stevenson's homecoming dance, so I got to spend the day helping Karen and Pop get everything together, and we even got to stop and see Anna and Aunt Carmen and Grandma for a little bit to say hi! Vincent had about 14 of his friends...
