Che Bella Italia!
The midterm holidays held a special treat for us since we got to go to Italy for a week! We really had an awesome time as we saw Milan and - the best part - VENICE!!! The weather was absolutely beautiful although it was quite cold but at least we had loads of sunshine :)
We had to get up really early every day since we wanted to make the most of our time there and we were also walking around a lot but it was worth every single minute of it! I saw more of Italy in this one week than in all the times we've been to Italy before together! I went to Cioccolaterias, Gelatierias, the Duomo in Milan, and saw most of what there is to see in Venice.
However, my favourite part was and is the food! :D After having been living on the Irish diet for such a long time it definitely was a very pleasant alternative :D As we were staying with Stella's family we always had dinner at her place and usually both of her parents worked together to create the most delicious food I've ever tasted! No offense, mommy, but I think Stella's dad is even a better cook than you are :P Then only thing is that the Italian people don't only eat extremely tasty food but also SO MUCH lol I didn't even know that, until we went to Stella's grandma's house once to have lunch there... delicious, but I couldn't finish everything as it really was incredibly much!
I really enjoyed my time in Italy and I'm definitely going to visit Venezia many more times as it is one of the most amazing cities I've ever been to <3
Now, about more recent events:
Mariana's gone :( :( :( :( :( :( :(
She went home last week on Wednesday after Stella and me skipped school for two days to spend her last days in Ireland together. On Tuesday we even went to Dublin to the airport with her and saying good-bye to one of my very best friends here in Ireland definitely wasn't easy. I already miss her so much and Mexico isn't exactly easy to get to from Austria... But we've already made plans for seeing each other again, and I'm sure we'll never lose contact as we've become exceptionally great friends in the past months and know almost everything about each other!
I LOVE YOU, HERMANITA MIA! <3
