Florence!

It's official.

I have registered to attend the Costume Colloquium in Florence this Fall.

Admittedly, I was a bit daunted by the registration fee, but it is a once in a blue moon opportunity. Therefore, I just closed my eyes, held my nose, and took the plunge.

I also got permission from my boss to take the time off so I can attend.

Yay!

Those are the good news.

The bad news is that probably ballistabob may not be coming with me, due to the fact that he has not enough leave time available.

Pooh.

I like travelling with my husband. :-(

In regards to accomodations, I am still debating whether to take advantage of the hotelling package that they are offering through the conference or to book something on my own. The disadvantage of doing it through the conference is that they don't tell you which hotel you are going to, and I much prefer to do my own research and read the reviews of the places.

With pictures.

Oh, and a safe in the room is not negotiable.

But I have time.

At least I have registered early and, taking into account that only 250 registrations will be accepted, first come first served, things are looking up.

And now, back to the drawing board.

Belfebe out.
