I'm off to Italy.
Weeeeee I'm leaving tomorrow, it's a college trip, can't waaaait!!
Jealous! Which part are you going to?
Florence I get to see the original David (Micelangelo's) and Venus (Botticelli's The Birth of...)
wow I've always wanted to go there I did Italian in school and never got to go on the exchange
You will have a great time Florence looks amazing! Obv with those great works of art it will be so cool!! Have fun
Oh yeh I keep forgetting no one knows that much I have a little phrase book I wont remember any of it!
I'd love to visit Italy. You're so lucky, we never went far for our school trips. Have a great time and take photos for us!
Oh wow, Italy is lovely, as is Florence.. Packed with tourists, but for good reason...
Just say 'Prego!' as much as you can, it's the best bit...
Or 'Ciao Bella!' or even 'Ciao Bambino!'
Loadsa fun. Oh and watch out for pervs. They're everywhere.
Yes, and not only in Italy :-P
I got back yesterday
Had lots of fun saw all the sights!
Yeh we were warned about Italian men before we went, it's just because they think English women are easy, stereotypes are based on truth though. We were told not to wear revealing things at night not even skirts with tights some girls wore tops without cardis and got looked at but they were told not to wear anything too revealing!!! But men can be like that anyway, anywhere it just seems scarier because they were foreign and we were all English and vunerable, heck women can be like that!

That's awful, when I was visiting the south of France there were lots and lots of creepy guys too. It's just so icky and oogie.
Haha my problem was when I went to Rome on a college trip everyone was being Ogled.. apart from me. I know it's wrong but I just wanted them to shout something inappropriate No quicker way to destroy a girl's confidence then stick her in a city full of pervs who just aren't interested.
God I'm an awful person.
Lol. I had read in some guide books that Rome has a reputation for some sleaziness, but i didn't experience any at all when i went last November. I'm not sure whether to be offended or not now!
once they went to the south of france and a girl got heckled all day just because she wore a short skirt!
Yeah, on this trip these guys came up to a girl (who was a bit like.. under dressed shall we say..) and they asked her if she liked 'ice cream' and then did a hand/mouth signal that looked like something quite different.
