I’m going to learn Italian! I downloaded a Learn Italian app which I found online. It said that the app has been used by more than 50 million people. Thinking that’s a pretty good reference! Anyway, now I have about a year to learn Italian before I go!
Yes….I’m planning a trip to Italy next spring. I’ve been dying to go there for years. I don’t have any specifics yet, but Dan is kind of excited about the idea. Ever since I saw Eat Pray Love I’ve wanted to go there, where pleasure is a way of life, to enjoy the “sweetness of doing nothing” in the words of Liz Gilbert’s friend, Luca Spaghetti. And then, “Under the Tuscan Sun”…..also made me want to go even more.
I am kind of thinking of Rome, Florence and Venice. Maybe 2 weeks. Maybe on a rail pass, and sign up for a tour for the really big places, especially in Rome. With a rail pass we could get off wherever we wanted to. I’ve always been planning on going to Italy when I retired, and how much more fun would it be to go with someone I loved?
I’ve talked to my sis and she and her hubby might join us for part of the trip. I’m pretty excited now that the idea is starting to take actual form, and isn’t just a dream I had. Just thinking of riding the train through Tuscany…How cool would that be? Idk. It may end up totally different than I think, but however it ends up, it will be a dream fulfilled.
Wow, how life changes. Love and light, to everyone.
Under the Tuscan Sun was my manifesting movie. Before that came out, I didn’t like to watch romantic movies because I was trying to be all don’t need a man Ms. Independent. But something changed in me. Hope got me to take a chance. I watched that movie over and over on TV and fell in love with it. Then I started to apply the building train tracks to be ready for the train metaphor to my life in little ways. I’m excited for you!
I LOVE that movie! Between the two movies, I was in love with the idea. Thanks so much for relating and sharing the excitement!
Okay, here ya go. Learn this. Vaffanculo! LOLOL
Thank you! I’m sure this will be helpful!!
Even more important than “dov’e i bagno.” Of course, it would be an appropriate response, should no bagno be available. 🙂
Well, here’s something that might come in handy no matter where you are.
“Rotolare i pantaloni è troppo tardi per salvare le scarpe ei calzini”
Hmm…rolling his pants and too late to save his shoes and socks? What the hell are you planning on doing there?
Did I ever tell you that I speak fluent Italian?
no you never told me, lol. Not sure what we’re planning on doing, but certainly will stay out of the sewer. 😛
I was kidding! Hey! Find a little cottage over there!
I have ben to Florence and Sienna, both were beautiful – also Rome, lots of old stuff to see, and its always fun to see all those priests and nuns everywhere – don’t know why, its just a bit like being in some religious tv drama!
They tell me Lucca is popular, I haven’t been anywhere else in Italy, but quite a few places I’d like to go – sure you’ll love it there! 🙂
