Bicicletta is currently my favorite Italian word. It has such a wonderful sound to it. It doesn’t quite roll off my tongue, yet, but I am always so happy when I pronounce it correctly. Learning a new language for me requires that I celebrate the small victories. It also requires much more patience than I originally thought that it would. Yet, I am enjoying the entire process.
Learning a new language also inspires planning for a new trip. As most people know, my love of travel is only second to my love of planning for a trip. Collecting, organizing and researching gives me so much joy and happiness. Currently I have 5 (cinque) trip ideas floating around in my head. And none of those trips have anything to do with my reward trip–a trip back to Italy.
Or maybe I’ll send a week in a house in Tuscany.
Or maybe I’ll finally take bicicletta tour that I always dream of…of course that would require the purchase of a bicicletta and some serious riding this spring. Hmm…I really must consider buying a bike.
For now, it’s back to my daily Italian lesson.
