Headed to Italy!

Hi :) 

We spent the day at the beach! It was amazing, we took two boats and explored some caves - they were GORGEOUS. The water was the bluest I have ever seen and it was so worth seven euros. Once again, Katie and I both got BURNT. Apparently, I need to wear SPF 100 or something. But thats okay, I'll come home tan! We also saw the Monastry, which was gorgeous. Mom you would have loved it! There is a picture of the beach as my profile picture, if you haven't seen it take a look and tell me its not the clearest most beautiful water you have ever seen.

I've had a bit of bad luck, looks like someone tried to pick pocket me. We went to a few bars a few nights ago and I was super careful with my bags and have no idea how or when it happened but it did. Luckily, there is two liners in my purse so whoever only slashed the outside one and didn't make it into the inner one. Sarah, that means there is a few razor slashes in your bag and I owe you a new one! But, praise the Lord everything is still there! Our tour director took a picture of my bag as a "what could happen photo." It would be me! 

So, we just left Corfu and are now headed to Italy. We spent our last day in Corfu town exploring. It is seriously gorgeous, there was plenty to see and lots of shops to see. We also had the best Baklava you will ever taste in your entire life, we went back... twice. Also, I was laughing so hard I totally fell, right in the streets of Greece and everyone with me was literally on the ground laughing while I was laying there. It was funny and someone caught it all on camera. The cobblestone streets are not really even and I'm pretty clumsy so its just what happens I guess but it's all good, it was hilarious. 

Right now, I am at an internet cafe somewhere in Greece. We took a ferry back to the mainland where we will catch another ferry (a night one) that will take us to Rome! I can't wait! We spend ten days in Italy so its going to be excellent and quite a bit of time. We are all afraid that we are going to end up speaking Greek there! We learned how are you and okay, its all been added to the list :)  We are signed up to do a cooking class in Rome, a Gondala ride in Venice as well as a wine tasting in Tuscany! YAY! 

So far everyone is our group has been amazing, there is 36 of us total and not a dull moment. Also, the tour has been great - everything is ready and pretty much been perfect. All our buses, guides, tours, and everything we have done has been on time and super cheap! I'm liking EF better than ISV! 

I can't think of any more updates, I'm always racking my brain to remember everything so I don't leave anything out but man oh man, there is just so much to remember! OH, for those of you who care - I took my pysch makeup exam and got a 92% on it which left me with an 83% in the class which is certainly a B- so I won't have to retake pysch 360 and that was all Jesus there because I was not that prepared and did really well! 

Next time I post it will be in Italy :) Bye for now! Or should I say ciao and brush up on my Italian! 


  1. Jenna it sounds like you are having an amazing time!Congrats on the psych exam, so great! Love and praying for you!

  2. Ohh my GOSH! you do NOT owe me a NEW bag! I told you to take it and i'm so glad they didn't get away with anything!!! I'm glad they slashed the purse and not you! I'm sitting here in my kitchen reading this with the biggest smile on my face.

    I am SO proud of you two it's not even funny! You have both grown up into such amazing women and to hear about your adventures ... it's unbelievable. Part of me feels like a mom because I'm so proud of you! Mom, Dave, and Dad have all expressed how excited, proud and happy they are that the two of you are experiencing Europe this way. If anyone back at home has anything negative to say it's just because they are jealous. I'm not gonna lie, I'm so wishing I was younger and was able to be with you girls experiencing one of the most memorable travel trips i'm sure you will have! I always said I wanted to travel the way you have been (especially you Jenna) but I don't think I had the guts to be as brave and take on the world the way you have! I love you both and can't wait to hear about the next corner you fall off of in Italy... please just don't fall off the Gondala LOL

    PS... I had no doubt in my mind you would do fantastic in your class! You can do anything you put your mind to.

    Ciao Chica's! <3 you!!!
