Harry Verderchi and Trixie Go To Rome

a trip by Aeroswine
From: September 27th 2013
Until: October 13th 2013

If you don't know who Harry Verderchi is, please search the Internet for "The Honeymooners" season 6 episode 14 titled "When In Rome" made in 1957, or its remake titled "Confusion Italian" made in 1966. Ralph Kramden overhears his wife Trixie on the phone with someone named "Harry Verderchi" while they're on vacation in Rome. If you still don't get it, sorry I can't help you.

We're off to Rome for 17 days, staying with family living in the northwest hills just outside the city. We'll be spending lots of time with our teenaged niece....hope she's ready for this!!! I'm being told the wifi service at their villa isn't too reliable, but maybe I'll luck out and be able to post entries daily or every other day. We're hoping to get to Pisa and/or Pompeii for day trips on the weekend....wish us luck. We failed at Rosetta Stone but our dear friends gave us a pocket guide to common phrases. I've also downloaded a translation app on my cell phone...it'll be a hoot for sure!

So we hope you will enjoy reading about our adventures, mishaps and mayhem on our first trip to a non-English speaking country!!!
