And so, the boyfriend and I are officially headed to Italy in early April. Plane tickets have been purchased. Squealing has been heard. Gelato has been Googled.
Train ride one will be from Rome to Florence. Train ride two will go from Florence to Venice. We will also be traveling about an hour outside of Florence and staying in a countryside villa for a few nights. Just typing that gave me goosebumps.
And, thanks to Eddie Izzard, I think I have a pretty good idea of what Italy is all about:
