Yeyyy... just coming out from the Spa!!!!
Unfortunately we came to the end of this (first) adventure together. So many things happened in those nearly 4 weeks. I still remember the first day I met Ray at the airport. She tried to understand me and I tried to understand her….the result was us speaking about the weather! Since the first day it was pretty clear that she has Italian blood because she's really and totally in love with pasta and pizza. And what about ice creams??? Valentino, the owner of the best local ice cream shop, is now her best friend!
I loved so much her trying to learn Italian from the first day….. but I have to be sincere, when she saw that my family and overall my friends could "speak" English she gave up trying to speak Italian! But she exercised a lot in speaking Trentino's dialect like "set dre a far bel? (are you having a good time?) and m'par ti vala toi? (how are you?). Now she kills it! She also trained a lot in learning Italian words such as the difference between CUCCHIAIO and CUCCHIAINO, between UNA SETTIMANA AND DUE SETTIMANE, between PROSCIUTTO COTTO e PROSCIUTTO CRUDO... how to taste everything like POLENTA (that she actually hates).. and not to use AMORE for everything( first lesson)!!!!! She also tried not to be missunderstood! Yes, I'm so sad to say that, but her Italian accent it's a mix between a girl coming from the south of Italy and a german one. (I won't spend words on my bad English accent).
One of the best part of this experience is that I made her "appreciate" excercising and sports…. Walking, riding bicycle everywhere, swimming in freezing water, beach volley, beach tennis, ice skating, rafting…….aaaaaaaaaand eating, cooking and sleeping, the best sports ever which she already loves (like me)! You have also to know that in these weeks me and Ray decided to start a tour together with our friends Beyonce, Celine and Rihanna! This is because we discovered (during our car tours) that we both have such a big talent in singing! Let us in advance know if someone of you want to see a preview of our show!
What else?? I laughed soooo much till getting stomach ache! When?? Thousand times… first at all for bad translations. Here you are some examples:
(Rachel) Merda, trying to say "metà" (an half)
(Anna) Dead, trying to say dad!
(Fausto, with his best Rendenglish) Underground, trying to say another round!
And sooooooo on!
Even if she had endless cold for the first two weeks (oh Linda, I took so much care on her with tissues and flu tablets) ……… We went out every night and we spent such a great time together… going in bars, meeting friends, driving everywhere (ohhh, Ray had the pleasure to drive my red Ferrari) and adding every time some new people to our single team! I'm so proud of my friends because they showed her their best qualities! This was the proof that people living on mountains aren't shy and with a rude personality!
Talking about mountains, Rachel came in a very small village surrounded by the most beautiful and breathtaking mountains of the world (just go through the various photos on Rachel's Fb wall). But here there are also mountains, curves, mountains, curves, mountains, curves and I forgot to say mountains! For this reason I thought she would have loved Garda Lake…. There, we spent such a great and romantic time and we BOTH started to get tanner and tanner!
My parents adore Ray and they started since the first day to take more care on her rather than on me! They found the perfect daughter, the one they have always wished for… so I think that I'm going to stay in Perth forever, if Linda, David, Bella and Nik will agree!
As you can see it was such a terrible experience! Sooooooooooooo boring!!!!! Please, don't ever join this project!
Ciaoooo Australia, ci vediamo presto!
Ray, honey!!!! COME BACK SOON! I'M ALREADY MISSING YOU AND WAITING FOR YOU WITH MY ENDLESS LOVE (like Lionel Richie would sing)… AND WITH MIMI AND RIDGE TOO!
