Pre-Trip Excitement - Italy!

Monday, June 2, 2014

One week from today, I'm flying to Italy!

I'm so thrilled. I've been wanting to go since my mom went back when I was a freshman in high school (eight years ago...whoa) and now, I'm getting to go with family and friends, and I couldn't be more excited.

I'm planning on doing posts on what I'm packing in both my suitcase and carry-on bags, as well as what cosmetics I'm bringing. But for now, I want to tell you what I'm most excited about seeing in Italy.

1. The Colosseum

Via Pinterest

I love huge buildings and ruins. I was floored two years ago when I saw the Cologne Cathedral in Cologne, Germany, so I'm excited that the Colosseum is one of the first things I will get to see. I know I'll have to use my imagination while I'm there, since so much of it is missing, but it will still be cool to check out something so famous and iconic in Rome.

2. Venice (In General)



My mom described Venice as "magical." Based on that description - and photos I've seen - I absolutely can't wait to see the city whose roads are canals.

3. The Trevi Fountain



I'm really, really looking forward to throwing a coin and making a wish into this famous fountain in Rome. They say if you throw a coin over your right shoulder, you are guaranteed to return to the city. And I imagine that I'll be wanting to make a return trip.

4. Capri


Goodness, this island looks amazing. I'm happy that this is one of the stops on our tour, and that we'll get to cruise around the island. I'm looking forward to taking this place in, because this place looks like the perfect setting for a movie (romantic comedy, perhaps?).

5. The Leaning Tower of Pisa


Okay, I'm a tourist. We have a free day in Florence, and our group opted for the two hour drive out to this monument. So, you can bet I'm going to be taking a ton of pictures of this tower (it looks huge!). I want to do something creative with the "I'm holding the tower up" photo pose that so many people take.

Long story short, I'm really, really excited for this trip. Hard to believe that it's all happening in seven days!
