This was interesting. I had no idea how high Juliet's balcony really was. Huh. I guess they tend to make it lower in on stage for convenience. lol I bet knowing people would be touring all this Romeo and Juliet stuff centuries past Shakespeare's day would have totally blown his mind! Hahaha
Dinner is at Ristorante Enoteca Cangrande
I got to eat lunch with Andy~~getting back to WDC. It was great getting to spend a bit more time with him. Shhh...don't tell anyone, but I have to admit, though I suppose Fivesixer has a nice butt, I'm just not a butt babe. I'm more of a chest chick and believe me, Andy~~getting back to WDC has an AWESOME chest with great abs and biceps to boot! I noticed it on our first day I was with everyone at the beach. But I was just too shy to try to talk with him. I finally got up the nerve and we had a great time. Would it be wrong to try and hang out with him next time we're at the beach??? Hahaha In case anyone is interested, Finn O'Flaherty has quite the package, too. I don't mean "package." Well, maybe, but my eyes are too polite to slide down that far. I just mean he's very well proportioned.
Regarding the restaurant. It was very quaint and the staff were lovely. I tried the horse meat. I gotta say, it didn't really taste like chicken. lol
I know it's tempting but please don't feed the pigeons when we are walking past St. Marks.
Who knew it was illegal to feed pigeons in Venice? Interesting... Anyway, I got to spend more time with SB Musing, Sally, and WakeUpAndLive~2020. I also hung out with some folks I don't really know such as Carol St. Ann, BlueMoon, and Apondia. What a great time with some great folks! I'm so glad I got to spend some quality time with everyone!
I know it's a long day but please have all your stuff packed this evening, we're leaving very early.
We've got a 5 hour train hour ride, but it's a beautiful scenic ride to Vienna. We've got bag lunches so we can begin our day once we leave our stuff at the hotel.
While I'm not looking forward to the 5 hour train ride, I am looking forward to seeing Vienna. I just have to pack my stuff and hope a random pillow fight doesn't break out. The Army gave me a "No Combatives Profile," meaning I'm not allowed to do combatives and I think pillow fights fall into that. lol I'm pretty damaged,so... Anyway, maybe we'll end up with pillow FORTS! Those can be fun! lol Either way, wish me luck!
As for that other thing you might call a REAL life, oddly, once I'm done writing my fantasy life blog, I no longer feel motivated to write my real one. lol Is it because my real life isn't nearly as interesting or because I'm just lazy? Perhaps it's a combination of the two. lol
Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead.
