This is the restaurant where Neil and I enjoyed dinner this evening.
Saturday 2 June 2012
Even well laid plans can go astray. A school pal had arranged to hire a car today from a local garage, but it didn’t come off. I think they (the garage people) forgot about it and went off for the long weekend without remembering that a couple of students from the language school were going to rent their spare car. Not to worry, I took the opportunity to catch up on some study. It was good because I didn’t feel under pressure to get my homework done in the otherwise allocated short time. I came up for air this evening and met my class mate for a meal at one of the village restaurants. I had a steak and it was very good to have something other than pasta!
It is now 10 pm and I am sitting outside in the street at a QRSIT point typing this up. www.qrsit.it
It’s a free WIFI point. There are many throughout the village. This one is only about 20 metres from my apartment… one would think that I would be able to pick up the wifi in my apartment, but no such luck… I have to come outside to get on the net. However, it’s a beautiful evening; a balmy 19 degrees and there are people wandering in and out of restaurants around me, others walking their dogs and others playing with their kids out in the streets. I’m wearing summer clothes and sandals, so I don’t mind doing this outside. I guess at this point in Tasmania it would be around 9 degrees… at a stretch! I picked a good time to come to Italy weatherwise at least.
This trip to Italy has been a dream for many years and this year, 2012 I give this gift to myself... for being a good girl!
I am creating this blog as a travel diary and hope friends and family will enjoy the armchair ride with me via my photos and travel tales. I intend to update it regularly... but cannot guarantee that I will. I could be too busy misbehaving myself!
