Our bags are packed and we’re ready to go…I used to stand in my parents living room when I was 5 with my suitcase and sing that song to them. Who knows what they thought. I first went to Europe at 3, to Switzerland, a country that seemed like a good place for kids. All of these years I have discussed this with my parents but didn’t actually know what they meant. Now I am on my way with my own almost 3 year old. Let’s see what his views are on the choice. I am looking forward to trying Swiss wines which never make it to the USA. I am also looking forward to seeing the Lake and the mountains, being with friends, being on vacation and taking it all in. Sometimes, I forget to breathe I rush around so much. I figure these weeks will take care of that and my insomnia problems.
On another note, today is San Giovanni, a huge holiday in my adopted city, Florence. Here’s a long post I wrote in 2009 about this holiday.
