A Journal, with Pictures


by on Jun.13, 2018, under Happenings

On Thurs­day, we were dri­ven from Castel­lo di Casole to Rome. It’s a beau­ti­ful dri­ve and we arrived in time for lunch. Our hotel was the Mar­riott Park near the Inter­na­tion­al Air­port since the major­i­ty of those attend­ing the Euro­pean Cir­rus Own­ers and Pilots Asso­ci­a­tion “Migra­tion” planned to fly in. I said planned because only five of the planes end­ed up hav­ing park­ing spots in Rome and the rest of the planes were spread all over Italy. Turns out we could have stayed down­town which would have been much more con­ve­nient. It was a fun three days, start­ing with a group din­ner at the hotel, then the next day was a bus tour of Rome, lunch, then an after­noon to explore the city on foot. We took this oppor­tu­ni­ty to vis­it one of our favorite places the Piaz­za Navona, for a cool bev­er­age and watch­ing the dai­ly spec­ta­cle. Fri­day evening was the Gala Din­ner, then Sat­ur­day there were excel­lent sem­i­nars in the morn­ing and after lunch an option­al walk­ing tour of the city and din­ner. It was great to see old friends and make new ones while vis­it­ing one of the great cities of the world.

Sun­day we flew back to the Unit­ed States in what turned out to be a very long day due to flight delays. We final­ly got home and start­ed the manda­to­ry diet after a great ten days of food, wine, and cul­ture, plus spend­ing time with fly­ing friends. It was a great experience.
