Traveling & Getting Accustomed in Italia: C's Week
What were you grateful for this week? M.
What was the most difficult or challenging part of this week? Putting the kids to sleep.
Tell us about a "wow" moment you had this week. Went out and spent a bit more money for the sons birthday than expected.
Tell us about your week! This week was good! I am starting to not feel uncomfortable in most situations, don’t mind being around people that can only speak Italian cause they don’t mind that I cannot. The family and I have started to know each other’s schedules and habits. I had trouble putting the kids to sleep on my own for the first time, but with time I know it will get better and they will learn to be fully comfortable with me. This week the daughter started to want to play with me more often which was very nice to have happen, and the son and I have found things we have in common that excite him to talk about.
This weekend I got to get away for a little bit with Meghan. We went and saw Pisa and Cinque Terre. Pisa was very small and the leaning tower was a sight to see! It looks like it will fall over at any moment, we had a laugh because it was funny to look at. Had some pizza in Pisa, then headed to the first city in Cinque Terre, Riomaggiore. These little towns are so picture perfect!!
We found some take away seafood and enjoyed a drink and some calamari on the coast looking at all the small colorful buildings pushed together. We didn’t get to see any other citys because the hikes between them were closed due to bad weather, but will be coming back at some point to admire more :) It was a sweet little get away and I am so excited for what else I will be seeing during my stay in Italy.
