totally can't concentrate.

Roomie just reserved a villa in italy for next year!

we're going with a bunch of friends!
i have to learn italian!

all of us are in a tizzy of planning (wardrobes, activities, day trips, food, music, wardrobes.) we haven't been able to work sensibly for the past hour.

dude. this is completely better than the cocktail date i have planned for tonight.

Italy is fabulous. Have you been before?

ding said...

never. and i haven't really had a real vacation like this where it's you, some friends, a house and basically that's it. nothing to do but sit by the pool, read, ride bikes down to the town and eat lots and lots of food.

of course, it's one long year away and we're all so stoked, it's all we can talk about!

where'd you go?

That's great. You'll have so much fun. I've only been to Venice, so I can't speak for the mainland. But it sounds like you've got all the right ideas already. :) Rick Steves will be your new best friend.

there are so many things i want to do:
learn some italian
bone up on the region (rick steves will be pertinent here)
plan a wardrobe

and then, once there:
speak some italian
see some fabulous architecture, art, textiles
eat great food and drink great wine
ride a bike/vespa
listen to some really loud opera
pretend i'm in a franco zeffirelli film

I feel ya. Good that you have a year to get ready. :) I'm headed to Greece in a couple of weeks. I meant to have the Odyssey and Illiad read by now. But alas.
