Yesterday David came home from his EF tour to Italy and it was a SUCCESS! His teacher told me: " The sites were spectacular, the weather was great and the students received nothing but praise everywhere they went. The hotels, restaurants, guides and even Air Canada made a point of telling our Tour Director or me how wonderful they all were! Wow! Can you get better than that?
Before the trip I reminded David what to buy and what NOT to buy. Apparently he listened and he does shop like his Mama....so here's what he brought back from the trip. Olive oil, jams, honey, calendar for 2011. We are all set :)
And PASTA! I know he would have gotten more if he had the room (small suitcase he used). Not only are these pasta tasty (I'm sure), they are so beautiful in the shapes and sizes!
I guess they only have one brand/kind of chocolate in Italy!!! I asked why he didn't get other brands/varieties. He told me that this is the ONLY kind that he likes!
crumbs cookies! I wonder what they taste like.
fancy note pads...they are $8 US each! but look at the "dimensions"...got to love that!
The "crazy stories" from his trip are mostly about David taking unauthorized
unflattering stalker photos of his travel mates. For some odd reason he became quite a paparazzi during this trip. Good thing he didn't join the Mafia (after all he did visit Sicily!!!). I will share some scenic and funny pictures in my next post or two. Thanks for stopping by!
