“What is the fatal charm of Italy? What do we find there that can be found nowhere else? I believe it is a certain permission to be human, which other places, other countries, lost long ago.”
I arrived back home today from 10 days exploring northern and central Italy and I had a truly fantastic time. For me, there is something so charming about Italy – perhaps it is the lifestyle or the people, but I find it easy to be there. I saw many beautiful things and tried a few new things as well and I think that those 10 days, in those beautiful places, with some good friends was exactly what I needed. Most of all, I am so pleased I managed to practice my spoken Italian; by the end of the trip, I was quite happy to speak to the locals in Italian even if my grammar wasn’t the best. Vita bella!
