Italy

Day 20: A picture of somewhere you'd like to travel.



Ciao!  I want to go to eeeeeeetaly!!  (toss hand up in air back and forth like the Italians do)
Yes, I'm Italian: I talk with my hands, have dark hair and that's pretty much it.  I don't have olive (aka tan) skin year round like true Italians do.  But I'm okay with that.  -- Helloooo sunless tanning!--  Anyway, where was I?! 
I have seen pictures and movies involving Italy, heard stories from my Grandma and it is driving me bonkers I have yet to hop a plane and set foot in the most beautiful place in the world.  I want to go where my ancestors lived, drink vino, eat proscuito, true Italian pizza and pasta (my 2 favorite food groups) and finish that meal off with some gelato.  Then for lunch.......
Before I pack my bags, though I want to learn Italian.  I know some phrases/words from my Mom & Grandma, but not enough to live life to the fullest in the country.  With my current skills, I'd ask for a table and get a camel.  I should probably memorize 'Mi sono persa.' (I'm lost)
One day I'll get there with my camera and a smile.  Maybe some clothes, too. 

P.S. ~ il mio italiano è orribile.
