Just stepped off aircraft in Dubai - Rome soon!!

Hello to you all,

Just arrived at our hotel, Rydges Plaza Satwa, Dubai. Hot, Hot, Humid!!

Emirates flight terrific, Executive room at Rydges is sooooo nice - our own computer to use.

7:30am here and I'm sipping a nice chardonnay I purchased at Duty Free with some lovely Brie and Italian cold meats supplied complimentary to our Executive Room.

I know, I know it's only 7:30am - but it's lunchtime in Australia so there is my excuse - hic, hic!

Depart for Rome on Saturday.

Check in with you all later.

Take Care,

Melissa

Hey Jeannette,

Have 2 seconds to talk. Have walked 2 500km today, slightly less than yesterday.

I have never been to a more magnificent city. Feel like I know the place like the back of my hand.

Promise to check in soon with more details - just touching base with this post to say we are having the time of our lives.

The most magic moment - rounding the corner and there in front of us ....the Pantheon, oh my God, I could have cried.

love to all,

Melissa

And so, your Italian adventure begins. I see it's a tad warm over there, but not as bad as Dubai. Say hello to Victor Emanuele from me!
