As usual, a brief and unsatisfying post...

We're in Switzerland! Yet again, the keyboard is a bit confusing (z and y are switched, the ' and ! are well hidden...), but aside from that things are going great! I have tons to write about everything we've done, but it's been a long day (like the last 30+ days) and we have a real bed to sleep in tonight! We're staying with Dennis, Sarah's friend who stayed at their house three years ago in San Diego as a foreign exchange student. It's a gorgeous area, Luzern, and I'm looking forward to a change of pace... a hike instead of museums and churches, heh.

Italy has been quite the adventure... We spent two hours in Florence, a day and a night in Siena, two nights and a day in Rome, and a day and a night in Venice.

I have so much I want to write about, but I know if I start I'll be here all night...

Thank you everyone who has posted and emailed. As I'm sure you all know by now, internet access has been extremely limited and mostly spent making hostel reservations, heh.

I'll be back in Oakland in a week and a day! Though there were times when I felt ready to come home (usually when we were lost, hungry, and tired......), I've had some amazing experiences and an absolutely fantastic time over the last month.

I apologize for the lack of postcards, too... stamps and mailboxes and finding the two before realizing we're in the wrong country for the stamps we bought the day before has been a bit of a challenge. I have tons of postcards that I can send from Santa Cruz! Ha, not quite the same, I understand...

Carrie -- feel free to use whatever you like from this blog. There's not much now, but hopefully I'll get around to posting the whole trip, photos and all. Be patient, heh.

We have a bit of flexibility as to our next destination, so if you have any suggestions as to a place somewhere between Luzern and Madrid that would be good for a day or two, email me! We're thinking a beach town in Southern France that a couple of Kiwis recommended to us last night, but we don't have our hearts set on anywhere...

Oh, and THANK YOU ALYISE for letting us stay with you and eat amazing homecooked Italian food... Thank Jon Franco and Flora for us!!!

Ciao!

Place to go: Nice? (the town, not the adjective) Dunno if you can make it with the alleged "rail pass".

I bet 1 Euro that this is the last blog entry from Europe.
