I finally pinned down my dates and a rough itinerary allowing me to buy my next ticket to Italy yesterday morning. I’m headed to Amatrice via Rome to volunteer in the earthquake zone for a couple of weeks. I’ll likely visit my family again and the Milan Bovisa campus as well. I’ve promised myself a half dozen times that I’d finally visit somewhere outside of Italy and this is the trip. A few days in France should be enough to allow me to see some attractions I’ve been wanting to see.
