Bags are packed, arrangements have been made, research has been done, and excitement is building. Wednesday is the big day. I am so thankful to the Fund For Teachers for providing me with this learning experience grant! I am eager to be sharing this adventure with all of you. I admit I have not blogged much in the past, so not only will I be learning about the food and culture of different regions of Italy, I will be learning about blogging from a foreign country. I will warn you now, as I have been warned, there will be places and periods of time in which I will not have proper access to technology, which may result in gaps in my blog entries. I will do my best to check in as often as possible.
