congrats on GRADUATING!:) isn't it surreal? I love the italian themed playlist. When I went on my tour of europe last summer we were with these crazy fun australians. They got really drunk off the free wine at our dinner in rome and sang "That's Amore" the whole way back to the hotel. have an amazingggggg time!

Lovely suitcase!

be sure to buy anything you're even remotely tempted to get,cause you'll regret not getting it the second you board the plane back...I talk from experience :(

But most importantly have fun!

First of all, bon voyage! I love Italy too, any place you're going is right, because all Italy is so beautiful. If you are going to the South, be awared there is a garbage strike and Naples is full of garbage!!
