'Woah, Yolanda, what's with this sudden adventurous streak?' I hear you gasp.
Well, in October I'll be beginning a French and Beginners Italian degree at Oxford, so I'm getting a head start on the Italian by spending a month in Italy!
One month of an intense Italian language course, living with a few local Venetians, eating spaghetti and trying not to fall in a canal (doomed to fail). And apart from knowing that I will almost definitely drop my phone/keys/passport/self off a gondola, I can't wait to get over there.
'But we'll miss you Yolanda! Don't forget about us Yolanda!"
Don't worry, children, I will definitely be blogging throughout my foreign adventures. (Likely future blogs include: 'Shit, Italian's hard', 'Why you should always pack two pairs of wellies', and 'Oh my god if I see one more bloody canal')
If anyone has any recommendations of things I should do or see in Venice, please do make suggestions in the comments, below!
