Had a lovely 6 days in Rome with hubby. Far away from the daily grinds of life. Being able to see flowers and green grass and trees already while the ground's still covered with snow here.
Felt relieved that we were travelling without kids when during the 3-hour flight to Helsinki, a little girl (around 3 years old) sitting two rows away from us was really cranky. Every now and then she screamed and squealed as loudly as possible, then cried as loudly as possible as well for a long time. The crazy thing was that she always started doing the whole thing again when I tried to sleep. And when I finally gave up on trying to sleep, she stopped whatever she was doing. Boy, were we so glad to get off that plane (as I'm sure the other passengers who sat near her)!:-D
Anyhow, the best thing of the whole trip was to have our caricatures done. I'd been dying to have it done for years and finally we did it!!! Here's the final product. We're both SO pleased with the result. It's money worth spent (€20). :-D Lots of memories and laughter! Here's to life! :-D
