Postcard from Italy...

Postcard from Italy.

Hi Facebook Lovelies!

We are in the last week of our Italian dream. And it's neither gone fast nor slow. It's simply been perfecto!! Currently sitting in a cafe in Venice listening to the many accordion players filling the air with their jolly Italian music as they dart up and down the labyrinth of streets that make up this floating city and smiling their way to a euro or 2 from each tourist.

We've just come from Cinque Terre, the one place I'd been looking forward to in this entire trip, and what Doug calls 'Heather's Italy'. It was a little surreal arriving and wondering if it was all it was going to be cracked up to be. And by Day 3, sure enough my heart was stolen, my dream was fulfilled and I'll be going home a happy girl. And that is just onnneeee of the incredible places we've visited.

Meet my new friends. I sit beside Sergio and Gimana. My new Grandparent's hehe. Sergio taught me the sweet secret handshake of Vernazza, so if you see me... ask me and I may share it with you! I simply adore how most older Italian locals, spend their days sitting in a line and chatting away sure enough gas bagging about allll the tourists. I not so secretly want to join them one day. ... I better start working on my Italian!! haha

Ciao guys, Heather & Doug xxx
