Road to IT pt I - Introduction

After building a miniature Colosseum in one day, and being more determined to visit Italy, I decided to get myself on track. And put an effort on turning a dream into reality.
So how this all began? Actually I really can't remember how it all began. Ever since 5 or 6 years ago, I'd always wanted to visit Venice and Greece. And after a while, my mind is set on Italy. The following things, are probably what caused my mind to focus on Italy :)
  • Nancy Drew's The Phantom of Venice, probably played a really big part of it. Wandering around the city of Venice, riding gondola to get from one place to another. It's just exciting.
  • Angelina Jolie & Jhonny Depp's The Tourist. Now I watched this with my friend at the cinema few months ago. And we came up with one decision. Definitely need to visit Venice. That's why we started to scheme this adventure now..
  • The Romeo and Juliet's tragedy took place here!! Don't you want to at least reminiscence their "O Romeo,,Romeo,, wherefore art thou Romeo?" in Verona
  • A city with a great and unique architecture really worth the visit. Italy is filled with a lot of great landmarks. So what are we waiting for?
  • You know how the TV always report a Christmas Mass LIVE from Vatican City. And to look in the background, you see something really grande & decorative. I just need to see it for real. And the movie Angels & Demonds does not help, it just makes me want to explore every church they got there. Maybe it's because every church got their own style of decoration, statues, paintings and all.
  • The more I learn about it the more I see that it's a one stop travelling. You can shop till you drop in Milan, enjoy the sunbathe or warm seas in Sicily, thousands of historical museums and cultural heritage sites, a hike at Cinque Terre, biking along the vineyard, and a hundred thousand things to do there. Although probably, if I'd really like to do all that I must stay in Italy for a month or two. *and got back home broke and jobless, haha..*
So help me turn this dream into a reality!! A prayer, tips or even donations are most welcome *haha..*. Let's just wish with all our might, that I'll be there in 2012. *although not all place visited at least reaching a part of it..*
