Swapping Ciao for Ola

D.Day came and went the other day, with the news that I will not be going to work in Rome, or Italy for that matter this coming winter.

Perhaps I will be saying OLA in Spain




Or como é você in Portugal



Asalamu Alikum hello from Gambia




Or maybe Asalamu Alikum in Tunisia where they too speak Arabic amongst some other languages.




Chi lo sa?

Who knows where destiny will take me for the first half of winter? And next summer for that matter. I will be in Sicily until the end of October, out and about travelling the island (for work of course) and then off to some far away possibly distant land for a few months. January or February 2008 will see me back in Italy, and back with the bel ragazzo as we head down to the toe of the boot to live in his Calabrian village for a while....And then for the summer we will be in Italy for sure but where exactly...stayed tuned faithful readers as the journey will only be getting more exciting (I hope)

So looks like the end of 2007 and 2008 is already full of mystery and hopefully marvels. Rest assured, where ever I am, in what ever country or city I will be blogging away, as the stupid tourists are going to be where ever I go!


STUPID TOURIST COMMENT OF THE DAY:

Old man from the other day who called wanting to go home due to the 'poor' Sicilian weather rang me, shock horror - to say thanks.

O.M 'Good morning Leanne, we just wanted to thank you for advising us that the weather would change. We are so very glad we did not go home.'

L: You're welcome old man. I thought you sounded sweet and old and a little bit confused so I put in a word with my homey mother nature and got the sun to shine just for you.'

Ahhh...wouldn't life be great if I could really have said that!
