While the smoking and the emphasis on a diet that includes dairy on pretty much everything was very annoying. My experience was beyond words. I loved everything I encountered and could pretty much get used to this life style on a daily basis. Of course every country has its issues but Italy is special. I had a dream to visit Italy and it came true!! Stay with me as I continue exploring this blessed place.
