Mark G

I have a wonderful partner, Sean. He puts up with my crap, and I totally appreciate that. He is one of the sweetest and caring guys I’ve ever met and love him dearly. I enjoy a balance of home life and not-home fun. I appreciate the theater, movies, concerts, travel and am a total computer nerd. I'm the guy that friends call when their computers start acting funny (and it's usually self-induced). Oh yeah--and I'm THAT guy who plays Everquest and World of Warcraft. You’ll likely find HGTV or DIY network on my TV at random times of the day. I am originally from New Hampshire. I once had someone ask me if New Hampshire was in Boston. Joined the Air Force and have not lived there since. I love to return to the area visiting family and friends. During my 21 years in the Air Force, I was assigned in Limestone (ME), Stuttgart (Germany), Ft Walton Beach (FL) and Oklahoma City. I retired and settled here in Midwest City, OK--for now. I am an acquisition program manager for the Air Force. Travel just a bit for the job. I've been from coast-to-coast and a lot of the many places in between. I've met 4 celebrities in my life: Cokie Roberts, Bill Gates, Ben Stein, and Stephen Paulson. Not the Angelina and Brad crowd, but it's my claim and I'm sticking to it. I am a fiscal conservative and a social liberal. Yes, a gay that aligns with some sort of conservatism. But the bottom line is that I like my money and don't like giving it to the Government to do what's best for me. In the same light, I don't like the Government telling me who I can sleep with and who I can marry. The repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell makes my heart sing. Now we need to chip away at DOMA. So that's a little bit about me. I've been to some really fun places and met some funny people. I have three terrific kids: Jennifer, Christopher and Jamie. Every one of them is unique in their own way and I love them all dearly.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Driver was on time and dropped us off at the correct terminal. Other passengers were complaining their drivers dropped them at the wrong terminal and they had to figure out how to get to the correct terminal on their own.

Florence Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Florence is a must do, but I'm not sure this tour was the right answer. We spent more time travelling and eating than we did sightseeing. In addition, our tour in English was actually in English and Spanish. The tour guide would explain what we were looking at in one language, then tell them/us to take 5 minutes and then gave the tour narration in the other language. We left Rome at 7:30. Arrived in Florence at 11:00. They gave us 1 hour on our own. We ate lunch from 12:00 - 1:30. We toured from 1:30 - 4:30 with a guide. We arrived back in Rome at 8:00. This tour should be given in a single language and increase the number of places visited. A bit disappointing.

Rome by Night Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

We actually skipped this tour even thought we paid for it. If you look at the image in the description of this tour, you see the Coliseum all lit up in the dark. That is misleading. The tour starts at 6:30PM, and in July the sun is still shining at that time. We were disappointed that we were made to believe this would be a tour of Rome all lit up. Not so.

This was an awesome tour. We got the highlights and had the Vatican to ourselves for a short while. We got upgraded by the tour company to include breakfast in the Pinecone Courtyard. It was very cozy and a really great upgrade.
