Good morning from Vicenza, Italy!!!
Now that my brother has returned from deployment, this is his actual assignment, so he lives here right now! I decided it would be fun to come back with him for a few days before heading home on Saturday ðŸ™‚
Check out the fun view of all the rooftops from my his apartment balcony:
Love it ðŸ™‚ So European!
We just had breakfast â€” look what my brother found at the store for me â€” Greek yogurt! Yummm.
I had my yogurt with sliced banana and some granola.
Delish! When traveling, I always try to keep breakfast healthy. That way I have a little more wiggle room for later on! ðŸ™‚ Getting lots of exercise is also key â€” weâ€™ll be walking ALL day today becauseâ€¦
Weâ€™re off to Venice for the day!!
Itâ€™s only about 45 minutes away by train and one of my very favorite cities. My brother has never been, but I was in Venice in May 2009 with my college BFF Kris â€” she came to visit me at the end of my time in Prague and we traveled to Venice, Florence, and Rome. It was wonderful â€” Venice was the most beautiful and had the best pasta (I LOVE the black squid ink sauce â€” canâ€™t wait to have it again tonight!), Florence had the best art and gelato, and Rome was cool because of all the crazy old ruins!
Stay tuned â€” Iâ€™ll be back tonight (late afternoon U.S. time) with a recap!
Have you ever been to Italy? Where did you go and what was your favorite place?
