A presto, Italia

Yup, you read that right. See you soon, Italy. I’m going on a mini-vacation with my parents in a couple of weeks and I am beyond excited!!

One of the things in my List of Things To Do Before I Die is visit Italy and I am just so happy that my parents invited me to go with them to Milan, Florence and Venice. I cannot stop thinking about all the BEAUTIFUL sights, the shopping, the food – oh especially the food – and the whole Italian experience!

In all honesty, when I hear “Milan” I think of shopping, but I am also so psyched to see the Last Supper!!

I am most excited to go to Florence! Although unlike Diane Lane in this movie, I probably won’t spontaneously buy a house there…

I hope I don’t fall into the canals…

I love a lot of things from Italy: Italian food (of course! Pasta, gelato, prosciutto are tops on my list), Italian fashion, Italian wine, limoncello, books and movies set in Italy (Eat Pray Love, Life is Beautiful, and Il Postino which introduced me to the great works of Pablo Neruda), Italian art, Italian history (I am enthralled by the Roman Empire), Italian everything. Even the boyfriend is Italian ♥ heehee

While I hardly know how to speak Italian (but I do speak a little Spanish, which is close, no?) I am going to try and memorize some key phrases in the next couple of weeks. Wish me buona fuortuna!

Have you been to Italy before? Any tips for me?
