On September 6th, Susan (my sister) and I will be departing Australia. Me in search of Gelato and Susan in search of all things Italian. In a jam packed three weeks we will be visiting Rome, Florence, Cinque Terre, Venice, Sorento and then back to Rome where I come back to work and Australia and Susan continues her journey to London and Scotland to meet up with long lost cousins.
This blog will be instead of postcards and email's and phone calls so do not complain when you don't receive them (Dad).
Today begins the countdown, three weeks and 1 day to go (and I could tell you the hours and minutes but better to be thought sad than to speak out and remove all doubt).
On a small aside Stef leaves for New York three weeks today to take up and internship with the very great Annie Lebowitz.
