Hello, hello, hello!
The most exciting thing that I did this summer was take a two-week trip to Italia with my big sister Logan and my parents! The two youngest sisters weren’t invited, unfortunately. Possibly next year they will get to come with us.
In Italy, we visited Rome, Florence, Venice, Pompeii, and whizzed around the Tuscan countryside on bikes.
Rome, or “Roma” (is it just a coincidence that Roma is Amor backwards?) was very noisy, very crowded, and very old. In some parts of the city, you can actually see that the city is built in layers… The way the Romans saw it, once a section of the city got old or needed replacement, why not build a new street and buildings on top of it? So now, Rome has little sections where you can look down into a little old market place that has been decaying and weathering away for
centuries. Also, did you know that they still use the same sewage system that was built thousands of years ago? Stinky. Venice was also beautiful, and the gondoliers were dressed just as you’d imagine; striped shirts with little red scarves.
However, I don’t think I would suggest taking a romantic trip to Venice, because the water in the canals is stagnant and a little smelly! I also made a few friends in
venice: a little blue bird named Freddie, along with a couple pidgeons.

Tuscany was beautiful, and I’m glad I got to experience it on a bike tour… It certainly didn’t hurt that our tour guide was cute. The rest of my summer has been pretty chill… apart from working out at my old high school during the week and a very intense work schedule of bussing tables Saturday and Sunday, from noon to 6, I don’t do much. Arrivederci!
