We packed the weekend with visits to the grandparents, picking fruits and vegetables from the garden, and lots of relaxing. Of course everyone asked me to say something in Italian and I replied with my whole repertoire, from 'spaghetti' to 'gelato'. I figured they didn't actually want to hear me drone on about the potential ramifications of a Grexit - in Italian or not.
Now that I've visited home-home I'm ready to finally reach new home in Italy. I can't wait to get settled in and start making it feel like my own place. I do hate leaving but I'm ready for a new adventure too.
See you on the other side of the Atlantic!
