Oh, you letcher! :P ...wonder if there are any good looking men...

Ahem. :D

Are there any other places in Italy you'd like to stay? Perhaps further south? :)

Things are not going to change until there has been a complete overhaul of such legislation so that victims are placed at the centre of it.
I note that the Human Rights legislation is meant to be from Mainland Europe yet only we seem to adhere to it, and usually to a breathtakingly stupid extent. Do you think this is the case for Italy and/or other countries?

I would love to travel all over! :D Yes, we landed in venezia and stayed all of 24 hours :( then a week in treviso, then firenze, pisa, siena, assisi, roma, and then back to the great down under. :)

I'd love to go to pompeii, milano, the amalfi coast, le cinque terre, maybe sicily.... I love travelling! :D

I know veeery little about Italian geography and culture. I just want to know everything. I'm currently geeking out over a new set of verb tenses I was sent by the lady tutoring me. I could easily look them up but it's just nice to be shown them, you know? :D It's very gratifying to see patterns come together, hopefully I'll actually be able to say more in Italian soon. :P

haha i "geek out" over new verb tenses too! :lol: and when I hear something wrong in english, I'm all like, "you shouldn't have used the past gerund of that modal verb, but the correct way to say it would have been to conjugate it in the past imperfect tense" :shock: hahahaha I get such weird stares from people who really should know their grammar better!!!

Ah, I'm not alone! :P If you geek out over verb tenses, you'll have the time of your life with the Russian ones! :D

hehe I'm looking forward to it, but at the moment, I'm stuck on pronunciation and spelling. I love the alphabet, but don't have the time I want to devote to learning it properly. Alas, Year 12 is an awfully big time-guzzler. (four months of study left, a month for exams and I'm free!! :D )

I have to confess, I kinda envy you. :P It's surprisingly difficult to find any Italian classes around here (mine has disbanded until October). That said, if I suddenly had your workload, I imagine the envy would disappear rather quickly. :wink:

haha very true. Yes the workload is a bit excessive, what with three part time jobs to add to the mix as well. :shock: I'm just a very busy bunny, and I CAN'T WAIT for next year to be done with school and able to study hospitality at uni. :D
