Off To Italy
So sad… I only have one more day in London and then I am off! Currently, I am staring at the flat I have been living in for the past 6 weeks and cannot fathom how I am going to pack it all in 2 small suitcases. Ok, to be fair, it’s one large suitcase and one small one. Add in all the extra clothes and souvenirs I have purchased… I will probably be sitting on my suitcase to make it close. Perhaps I should have purchased another bag. Oh yeah, and that weight limit thing? Fuggeddaboudit. Someone will be paying extra to check their bag. Where’s Dad’s credit card when you need it?
I need to catch my flight to Italy at 7:10am! So, I will be getting up extremely early Friday morning. Early is now redefined. I have to get up at 3:40AM! That’s the time I go to bed, not get up. Perhaps I should just stay up for one last night at the pub… I didn’t realize that British transportation was so complicated. I have to catch a taxi to a bus stop to an airport and THEN I can get on my flight. OMG!! So much work at such an early time.
Public transportation is highly overrated.
Here is a little sneak peek at what I will be doing for the next week:
We are heading to Venice and I cannot wait to ride in a gondola. I hope the gondolier is cute. Next, we will be heading to Athens, Greece for a little fun in the sun and to check out that Parthenon (and all the guys). After Greece we are flying back to Italy to stay in Rome for a few days. I have wanted to go to Italy for so long! Now I’m going twice… on the same trip.
I cannot wait to see all the ruins and sights in Rome… blah, blah, blah. What I am REALLY looking forward to: the FOOD. Especially in Italy. Especially after Britain. All that authentic Italian pizza and pasta…yum… I hear my stomach growling already.
