    Bonjour!

    So sorry I've been so lax in posting, I've been busier than you can imagine!

    Not only that but I seriously hate French keyboards!!! All the letters are all in the wrong spots!

    Ok, so not totally sure where I left off but I think I hqd not yet gone to Pisa to see the tower in my last post. Let me go back in time a bit and catch everyone up...

    Starting with my trip to Pisa it was amazing. The tower was just as you'd expect it but what I didn't expect was the beautiful cathedral that is at the same spot. Really honestly breathtaking. Those Italians know how to do their churches! I have lots of pictures to show when I get home of them [img]smile.gif[/img]

    The next day I was back in Rome doing a little sightseeing with a turkish girlfriend and we walked ourselves ragged going from one museum to the next and at one point had to take a break with our feet in a fountain when out of nowhere these Italian guys walked up and sniffed me... yes, that's right... SNIFFED me!!! Apparently I smell better than most girls they come across (and let's face it, in Italy, that's not saying much) because after that he was professing undying love and even after Nor and I had made our escape they were calling after us to come backkkkkkk. Haha, Italy was fun!


    At the end of the night what else could we do but crash the pub crawl that was hitting the pub downstiars from us! We ended up drunk and playing in the fountain on some random corner (there's a ******** fountain on every one and I think I played in most of them!)

    The next night we did some more sightseeing and hooked up with the guy who worked at our hostel to walk around some. He was cool but kind of an odd duck. We went to check out Trevi fountain where they say if you throw in one coin, you'll return to Rome' two and you'll fall in love and three, you'll marry that person. So what does this guy do? He throws in... one... two... three... and then SPLASH!!! He chucs his whole self into the fountain!!! Guess he REALLY wanted to get married eh?

    My last day in Rome was spent sleeping in, then going to the Vatican again to climb to the top of the Basilica with a group of friends from the hostel. I filled up two film cannisters with Vatican holy water to bring home and sent off a couple of postcards from the Vatican post office and then went and ate the most amazing baked canneloni... I miss the Italian food SO much!

    OK... So then I left Rome and embarked on the train trip from **** because I got mixed up about which station I was supposed to leave from and missed my train with the lovely sleeping car! They ended up getting me on a train that stopped every three ******* feet throughout Italy and then I had to change trains at 6am and couldn't get a seat on the new train and so I had to sit on the pullout seat in the passageway and of course I am so beat down that I am falling asleep sitting up and actually fell off the seat onto the floor like three times!

    Finally I get into Nice and let me just tell you it is LOVELY!!! However, all I could think of right then was sleeeeeeep and after the seemingly endless hike to my hostel (which blessedly is right on the beach) I crashed for the better part of the day. Once I finally roused myself I made it to the beach with this girl from the hostel who is in a PhD program at Harvard and a Dr. from Australia. The beach is really rocky but the water was just breathtakingly blue... never before have I seen water like this! That night we all (we = those two plus another Aussie, a Brasilian guy, and this girl who is on the US olympic ski team and her boyfriend) went out and got lit up at this beachside club. Me and the girls turned in early and the boys stayed out to burn the town down..; all in all a great night!

    the next day I went to the beach at Monte Carlo [img]graemlins/island.gif[/img] and got burnt to a bloody crisp. Later that night I went to the casino and gambled a little with like 50? to start and 70? when I finished! Whoo HOOO!!!

    The next day I did the beach at Monte Carlo again with these two girls I'd met in Rome but who happened to also be in Nice and were even staying at my hostel [img]smile.gif[/img] That night after (once again) getting too much sun I tucked in early and the next morning checked out of my hostel, dropped my bag off at the baggage check at the Nice train station and went to Cannes for the day with this lovely british girl I'd met. Her and I had a wonderful time together and I even went topless on the beach!! Have I mentioned how much I love the French Riviera???

    Coming back from Cannes to Nice to pick up my bag, the train was late and so I missed my connecting train to Bourdeax but not too big a problem because there was another in a few hours I could take.... it was an overnight train too so I got a sleeping car and took a couple dramamine and crashed HARD! So hard in fact that I was woken up in Bourdeax by the guy who was cleaning the train after it had pulled in the hour before!! haha!

    The only really sucky thing about rearranging my trains is that now I am stuck in Bourdeax for like 10 hours and let me just tell you... it is a ********. Oh well, in a few hours I will be on a train headed well on my way to San Sebastian, Spain and I just don't think it can come soon enough!

    Ok... that pretty much catches you all up to now... with some minor gaps that I will try to fill in another time [img]wink.gif[/img]

    After Spain I am going to Interlaken, Switzerland and then possibly Munich, Germany or Vienna, Austria. After that I am meeting an American man I met at the Sistine chapel to go horseback riding in Slovenia, then off to Venice and then home!! Unless I run out of money for Venice in which case I might try to make my way to Paris to stay with my Turkish friend Nor at her apartment... in either case... wish me luck!

    Love you all!
