|Duomo in Milan|
I've learned so much on from my first big trip. I had sooo much to say, it was bursting out of my in Italy. Now, my whole body just wants to relax and I've already been back a week.
Just a quick list of things I notice about Italy:
- The stereotypically roundabouts and the many crazy drivers is mostly true.
- Almost everything can be served on/or with bread. If you're me and you love bread it's amazing.
- The type of cars we have in the U.S. are more common than I thought they would be. It's about 50/50 our style cars, and the Vespas and little Italian cars shown on TV.
- Most Cafes have sandwiches, coffee, and a full bar.
- Unlike Amtrak, the train prices in Italy fluctuate overtime.
- Every major historical sight and transport station will also have Italian police/military there with semi-automatic rifles slung across their chest. The only time I've seen that in the U.S. was at the 9/11 museum. In Italy, I saw them everyday at almost every attraction. It took about a week to get used to.
I'll be back soon with all my wonderful stories from my trip and what I thought of all the wonderful places I saw. For now, enjoy my first picture from Italy, that I took myself.
