Boun giourno from Venice, Italy! Sorry for the lack of updates about everything that has been going on...but we have been busy! We have been in Italy for about a week and have seen the leaning tower of Pisa, Colosseum, Trevi fountain, Spanish steps, Pantheon, the Vatican and so much more! We even got blessed by the Pope! Italy is a beautiful country and I love the culture! Today we are out to explore some more of Venice and tomorrow we take off for Verona!

 Also, the Italian men. Just how I imagined. Almost everyday we either get a "ciao bella!" or "mamma mia! bella! bella!" or serenaded by old Italian men in a cafe or have a gondola driver pretend to blow your dress up as he goes underneath a bridge that we are standing on. They also like to just stand outside and watch all the beautiful women pass by. It is very funny.

There is soooo much more but we are off to see the church from one of the Indiana Jones movies and maybe explore some islands!
