Holly: Checklist

January 5, 2012

January 18, 2012. 91 days.

That is the day that I take off from Milwaukee, WI, USA and head to Rome, Italy.

It seems a long way off but I just know that it is going to creep up quickly. Especially since now almost all pre-departure items are turned in and complete!

Next week I have my orientation and I am really excited to meet the other kids that will be going to Rome as well!

I have already made a list of things I MUST complete while in Italy (’cause how many times does a kid get to go to Italy??!):

1. Throw a euro (or two)  in the Trevi Fountain

2. Visit The Colosseum & The Pantheon

3. Go on a Wednesday and see the Pope speak at the Vatican

4. Walk through the magnificent Sistine Chapel at St. Peter’s Basilica

5. Admire the beautiful ancient art and the gardens at Galleria Borghese

6. Take a canal ride through Venice

7. Visit Il Duomo and Il Ponte Vecchio in Florence

8. Drink wine and appreciate the Tuscany countryside

9. Take a weekend off and go to Cinque Terre

10. TAKE LOTS AND LOTS OF PICTURES OF EVERYTHING!

In addition to this list, I hope to eat lots and lots of great Italian pasta and gelato. I’m also hoping that my host family will teach me their exquisite cooking ways.
