Where’s the travel in my obsession?
I realize I haven’t posted much on travel lately. There are days when I see my blog’s lack of travel related posts and I start to feel guilty as if I’ve let somebody down. I feel like an imposter 😉 I guess I shouldn’t put much thought into all this as it is just a blog. Blogs should be fun and not something that I feel obligated to write. Still, I should do more travel blogging. I promise to make more of an effort.
But hey, don’t forget that my trip to Italy is only a little more than ONE month away!! Can you believe it? I can’t. My husband even said it feels like it has come too soon. Too soon, I asked!?! That’s silly. He said that for our last trip he had a big map of Italy up on our wall. I guess he thought that map made things more official. I for one don’t need a map on the wall to know the trip is just around the corner. I feel it every time I see a plane in the sky. That nervousness. God how I hate to fly. Even though I think I’ve gotten better at being more relaxed while flying this will be the first overseas flight in some time. I just wish I could have pleasant thoughts when I saw a plane high in the sky instead of the not so pleasant, stop thinking that, type of thoughts. Can someone please slap me next time?
I just read on Wandering Italy blog that the Italians are getting fatter! I am so happy to hear that! Is that terrible of me? I admit I feel like I need to quickly loose 10 pounds before October. I would hate to encounter the same humiliation as my last visit when I was turned away from a Roman shop because I was “too big” to try on one of their garments. Needless to say, I wasn’t too big just not 5′ and 90 lbs. Does anyone know how to say “fuck off” in Italian? You know, just in case I need to tell some tiny size 0 shop girl just what I think of her snotty attitude.
