la dolce vita

cinque2.jpg


Well, I'm off to Italy on Monday and it's the most exciting thing EV-ERRRRR. I haven't gone a-travelling on the international scale in awhile with my last trip out to Oxford, England two or three years ago. But now I'm just starvin' for some other soils. Merrr, that sounds potentially unhygienic. Don't eat dirt!

Now that I've imparted those words of wisdom, I can travel in peace. My excitement is stirred – frothed, even – for a number of reasons. 1. It's vacation! I don't have to go to work! 2. It's Italy! Amazing! That's about enough reasons. I will see some sights, eat and drink fabulous things. That's about all the italian I know anyway. Io vorrei mangiare - I want to eat. I'm set to go.

With poor travel planning, meaning I'm poor and I also have poor judgment and a quick mouse clicking finger, I only get four full days in italy. But I am sure to make the most of it. I won't get to see a ton of Rome but we are also planning to go to Cinque Terre, or "Five Lands", the Italian Riviera. There will be much hiking, beach-exploring, ogling at beauty, picture taking, and of course, mangiare between these western Italian coastal collection of five towns.

And when I get back, of course, I will have a new lease on life. I will make changes. I will fill my hollow promises to myself. With a delicious filling.

p.s. I may or may not update while there. But will post feverishly upon return.

Dood! I didn't know that! With whom?! That's amazing! Okay, too many exclamation points. Have a rockin' time.
