In eight days I’m off to Rome for two months. This will be the start of fulfilling of a long held dream – I have always wanted to live in either Rome or Paris or maybe Madrid, possibly Berlin….. and study the local language! So – I have taken an apartment near the “Campo di Fiori” in Rome and I’ll be attending Italian classes everyday from 9 to 12:30 and then spending the rest of my time soaking up the language and culture in everyday life! How cool is that I ask you? BTW it is OK to really, really hate me! I would if I weren’t me!
Anyway I’m very excited and more than a little terrified. I’m not worried about bad things happening but only that after all the preparation and work to get there perhaps I won’t like it or I’ll be really bad at Italian – I hate studying – tho’ I do the wines very well!
I read “Eat, Pray, Love” recently – lovely book but thank God I decided on this trip long before reading it – I’m arrogant enough to not want to be seen as so completely derivative!
I loved posting last year during my antipodean travels and so I shall attempt to keep this series current and interesting.
Do visit me on line as I’d love to hear from you all!
