Okay NOW I feel like I'm actually in Italy. I spent all of last week lying around the hotel either out by the pool or     sleeping off my jet-lag. THIS week, I actually started getting out into the city that I'm in and Italy is so gorgeous! It's one of those places that actually look as pretty in real life as it does in pictures. And the history! I'm a total history nerd so this is basically a fantasy life for me right now. 

Started my Italian as a Second Language class on Monday and I think I'll be able to pick it up without too much trouble. I mean it totally helps that I've been taking Spanish since middle school (not that any of it has actually be fair) so I can do like numbers and stuff. Totally ordered an entire meal and paid in Italian last night...wooooo!

Went on a day trip to Venice on Wednesday which was my first time using public transportation here and it wasn't bad at all. Venice is only about an hour away by train so it's not too far. Venice is unbelievably confusing and crowded and loud and twisty and turn-y and filled with oodles of beautiful buildings and canals and shops. We mostly just walked around and checked out a few churches..nothing too intense. I figure I have some time here, no need to shove it all into one day.
