Just two days before our departure, our travel agent called to inform us that the trip was cancelled.
On March 9th, the government of Italy announced a national lockdown.
There is no refund for the trip, only a deferment . No date has been given.
We are still waiting for a response from our travel agent who is waiting for a response from the tour operator who is waiting for the airline who has suspended all flights until further notice.
It's a long waiting game...
It's a no-win situation for any party and everyone is a loser.
I'm not even angry, just frustrated.
Our Italian vacation is in limbo.
It's a torturous wait and at 58, I feel my life seconds numbering.
The corona virus has hit the pause button on my bucket list.
So many places yet to visit, so little time.

According to Lonely Planet, international travel might not return until 2021.
I miss traveling!
