Dinged again.

I've been meaning to write about our trip to Italy last summer for some time. This is as good a place as any to start.

Yesterday I received a souvenir from our trip to Italy. 180.80 euro speeding ticket in the mail. Brian or I were apparently going 77 km/h in a 60 zone by a speed camera evidently.

Yes we were in Italy at the end of August in 2009. Apparently that means nothing. They found us! And if we don't pay up in the next 60 days, the fine will double.

Damn it, damn it, damn it.

OMG!!! I can't believe they found you! (I'd expect that from the Swiss, but the Italians??) Where did they catch you?

That's a lot of money for going 10 MPH over the limit. Back home you'd only get hit for about $70.

In fact, for that much money, you can drive 29 MPH over the limit! (except on the interstates) So, slow down for now - you can go much faster for your money when you get home!

What's really funny is that it took the Italians so long to find you. If it were the Germans, you'd have had the ticket the following week.

Love to all.

Amanda- Right near our villa in northern Tuscany :(

Mike- They don't mess around in Europe! Keep that in mind while on your trip!

Hoppy- They definitely took their time!
