Well lets see, since i last wrote, i had my adventures in Munich and the madness that was the 24+ hour (literally, no joke) party of Oktoberfest. Lovely tren italia of course chose that Sunday to go on strike, so we decided to see how far we could get and if we could find an alternate route home through Austria. Which of course led us to getting stranded in Austria for the night, but of course in lovely innsbruck, a resorty town in the Alps.
Then school started and the mounds of work continued and still continues to pile up. Its a never ending battle trying to remain on top of all the bazillion things i have to do. My friend Sarah came to visit from the UK and that was nice. We hung out in Bologna and then went to Florence for the day.
And finally most recently, I got back from a weekend in Barcelona visiting family and friends. It was SOOOO nice to go back to Barcelona. The weather was amazing and warm compared to the freezing, grey, drizzling weather we've had all week here in Bologna. It was nice to be in a country where i spoke the language and i didn't sound like an idiot everytime i opnened my mouth (which is what happens here more often than not :( ). And most importantly I had so much fun catching up with friends I hadn't seen in ages. Its amazing how far I've come from when I was there as a student. It was a very nostalgic visit. It was also great to visit the city and appreciate the beauty of it. You just become so accustomed to all the sights when you live in the city, that most of the time you just go about your business oblivious to the fact that you are passing an amazing church, or Gaudi building. Oh i could go on and on about how faboulous barca was but i will spare you.
Anyhoo this weekend is the halloweeen party so i'm going to venture out and put together a lil costume.
HOpe all is well. Talk to you all soon.
