A Day In Venice

Hello and happy Monday!!! This weekend was quite an adventure for us.  On Saturday morning J woke up with the spontaneous idea of heading to Venice, Italy.  So once we got ready we headed to the train station and began our adventure.  It was really nice to experience Venice not having any plans and being able to just wander off. Not knowing where each corner would lead to and at the ending loving each little part that we saw.  

Here's a little view on our trip!!!

La Vita È Un Sogno

It's been a week today since my arrival to Italy.  Between recuperating from the difference in time and all the paperworks I've been doing (medical insurance, soggiorno, etc.) I haven't been able to keep up with ya'll or with my blog.  Back when I was in Fort Bragg and we were preparing for this big move I thought I had everything handled; I even had prepared this cute little binder with all the paperworks and important documents.  To learn later on that I had much more to do here in Italy.  

My thoughts on living overseas?  One word can describe it... WOW!!! I mean the culture, the language and fashion, it's just amazing and I am in complete awe.  Although I can't say that I will be use to living so far and I also still have tons of things to do since my furniture has not yet arrived and in the transition of finding a job; I have taken time to just mesmerize myself with the structures and beauty Italy has.  

 I had to include my love here

And lets not forget about the food... AND WINE

Gelatos, pastas, pizza, you name it everything taste so different.  There cheese and meats are just so different from the States.  Oh!!! Lets talk about coffee; and to think that I was addicted to Starbucks.  Cappuccinos here are to die for.  The wine being that is made here are so much more affordable than in the States (I'll be posting on wine).  The only thing I consider that tastes different is the Coca Cola. For an addict of Coca Cola I can say I will not be drinking any in these 3 years but who cares when I have all these different wines to try out lol.

I'm in hopes of buying a bicycle since its what everyone here uses to go from place to place plus it seems fun.  And if your wondering where the hell is Knela; well she's perfectly fine and enjoying here new home.  
She has traveled more than I have
And he still doesn't stop surprising!!! Thank God he's been patient with me in every way and his love for me grows more just as much as I love him.

See you soon!!!

Welcome to Vicenza, Italy

What can I say... I've been having mixed emotions lately regarding this move.
Lets begin by explaining my whole experience in regards to the flight.  HORRIBLE!!!  First they canceled my flight then they delayed all my  flights so instead of arriving Monday I arrived Tuesday.  It was a very exhausting experience for me and Knela.  She was stuck in that kennel for so long I felt so sorry for her.  But once I arrived and saw my husband everything was just forgotten.  
At this moment I can say that I don't think I'll be driving here.  Speed limits are jokes, everybody seems to be in a rush and it's literally scary.  The language is just beautiful I hope I get to learn it quick.  I haven't been able to explore much because I've been doing paperworks and trying to settle down and of course rest and enjoy my hubbie.  
I haven't post for a while but promise once I settle in everything will come back to place and I'll have plenty of time in my hands.
Have a great weekend ya'll!!! Chao
