After many months of planning and preparation, it’s just about time to go to Italy. So now I’m going to start packing. Let’s see: I need to leave room in the suitcase for souvenirs such as scarves, Venetian glass jewelry and chocolate. Well, never mind the chocolate. It rarely makes it home.
On my to-do list:
Look for gelato shops and sample as many flavors as possible. Save the tiny spoons for souvenirs.
Take lots of pictures and remember to occasionally put the camera away and simply enjoy the scenery.
Bring an extra pair of walking shoes, an umbrella, a poncho, and be grateful for good weather.
But it can also be beautiful when it rains…
I’m hoping to have lots of adventures so I’ll have interesting things to write about when I get back. Arrivederci!
