La Grande Avventura Italiano di Telma e Luisa!!

Standard

So, my friends, the adventures continue. About a year ago I emailed to an ad in our Beaufort paper advertising a Cozy Tuscany Apartment, local owners. .cozytuscanyapartment.comMy question was, “do you speak Italian?”. I had this strong desire to be able to speak and understand the people in my favorite country. the reply came back to me, something like, ” no, I don’t speak much Italian, but let’s have lunch!”.

well, we did, and now fast forward a year. Donna Drago, owner of the cozy apt, and I have become great friends, have shared our love of all things Italian, have taken two Italian language classes this past winter in north Charleston. . .www.iltavoloitaliano.comiltavoloitaliano.com. . .and now we’re off to Italy to immerse ourselves for 2 weeks in Italian. actually, she’s already there because she’s a more advanced student than I am. I am still a beginner.

We had a little send off with something bubbly in Beaufort last week. . .

Note the team scarves. . .knitted by me. . .and there are other team accoutrements which will be unveiled in future blogs!!

I’m now sitting in Philly, gazing upon the beast which will carry me to Rome

Lest you think, dear readers, that I’m totally organized and have my act together, gaze upon this bedroom floor scene. . . Unpacking from Beaufort/chapel hill, and repacking for Italy /holland biking/back to Italy. Not a pretty sight, I’m afraid!!

But I’ve now got it all in two tidy bags, one for biking and one for Italy, and I have my game face on so that I don’t attract any Italian nasties who think they want to ” help”.

BTW, we biked 30 miles on Wed. And 22 miles on Thursday. I doubt I’ll be biking in Italy, so that final training will have to do me.

Ciao for now. .. More as it occurs. . .
