Hi friends,
We've made it safely to Italy once again. Venice is much better than Milan - the canals and city are beautiful. You just can't take a bad picture! Yesterday we spent our time wandering around the city and getting lost... lots of good shopping here (be excited dad).

Being here is wonderful, but reminding me to appreciate the small things like:

using the restroom for free
having clean clothes
using the telephone
doing our hair
grid maps from America
free internet

There are some good things about traveling, though... other than seeing great new places. We've been making some good friends. Room 206 forever! :) We have found making friends with other travelers to be fun. We met a couple from England, two cousins from Kansas City, Martin from France, a family from Ireland, and girls from Chicago.

Tomorrow morning we will fly to Rome and enjoy 4 relaxing days there... then home again! We miss you all!! I'm eating enough Gelato for all of you :)

Tamara!! I miss you guys sooo much! Im happy to hear that you guys are having a great time. Im so jealous about eating all the Gelatos and all the beautiful places you're seeing. I can't wait to see the pictures! And I have to hear more about the Italian guy! Hahaha! Just for that I'll definitely eat a taco for you!
Just to let you guys know...I am now addicted to "Friends." I am trying to restrain myself from watiching too many episodes before they all run out before you come home! I really do love the show! :)
Well...I miss you guys and can't wait to see you. Have fun with these last days of Europe! Stay safe!
Love, Augusta
