Ireland and Italy Reloaded

Can't wait as tomorrow I am heading to Northern Ireland and then eventually Italy. I am flying to Dublin and going to spend about four days with my cousins the Gallaghers. They live in Northern Ireland and so cousin Mark is picking me up at the airport and then we will make our way north. Can't wait to have a great time out that way! Then on Tuesday night I make my way to Lucca, Italy for Dominic and Sheila's wedding. What a great time that will be as the big day is going to be on Thursday at a ceremony in downtown Lucca. Dom and Sheila are staying at my cousin Jim and Katie's place in Aquilea and it is going to be quite the party. Looking forward to hanging with my college friends Brian and Chris as we are all going to be staying together with my cousin Jim at his apartment in Lucca. Talk to you when I get back!

New book to read

Yesterday I picked up my copy of The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. This is the third installment in the Robert Langdon series and after heading over to Borders to get the new book, I headed to the coffee shop to begin the read. I must say, much like the others, it is a page turner. I am about 45 pages in and already I am hooked into whatever is going to happen over the next 500 pages or so. I am staying away from so I don't read any reviews and have anything spoiled for me. Should be a fun read. As for coffee shops, those of you who know me, know that I do not like coffee. So I went to Intelligentsia and had a hot chocolate and a chocolate chip scone. One thing I do love, I do love chocolate and cannot stay away from it. The only thing better than chocolate is peanut butter. Put them together and.......yep, the best.

Good luck to everyone reading The Lost Symbol, interested to hear your thoughts if you are just starting out.
