Alena’s Travel Diary

Thursday, 13 Sep 2007

Mapoh....... I am terribly sorry to all that I have not updated for a while, to tell the truth, not much has happened in the last 3 months, yet a lot has happened at the same time...

I have been working as a bar maid in a bagno in Marina Di Ravenna, I have been working a lot, nearly every night since I have started there which was the begining of may... As my days consist of sleep because I work until on average 1 am, and start from 12 midday onwards, so as my days are all exactly the same, it feels to me as no time has passed at all.... Yet, when I look back on my time here in the Romagna area, I realise that I have spent time here with my mum, and my sister, met a fantastic man, gained wieght, had a tan then lost it (from too much work) had an accident on the bicycle and grazed the right hand side of my body,. which I may add, the only place that will leave a scar is that of my right elbow!!! Yet, that is a funny story to tell, because as only Alena can do, is to forget that the breaks were not working!!! And with speed, a little gravel, a lot of sand, lack of breaks and a small hill means a crash... all well and good now, except that the scab is itching like crazy!!!

I have plans to return in the not to distant future, but as the life is unpredictable, you never know, things may change again!!! But, I start to tell of my plans and what is happening now...

At last I have stopped working every day and now I work only friday saturday and sunday nights for another 3 weeks, I have had only 2 days off so far, the first with sleep all day and the second I have taught myself to knit!!! oh, the strange things alena wants to learn, the next I want to do is a mosaic, I am living in Ravenna which is the city of mosaics in Italy... today Mauro and I are going to Milano Marittima which is apparently a super famous, rich hot spot with loads of super cool clubs and what not, the Bagno I worked for had affiliations with one of the clubs there and there was a big party for the 2 places, but alas I had a fever and flu at the time so could not partake in the festives... But, it will be a nice place to see I think... rambling, sorry.... continue

ok... so essentially for the next few weeks I will be relaxing at home, sleeping and knitting and mosaicing or what ever tickles my fancy, I work the remaining 3 weeks then I am off to como again for a week or so, its my darling friend Michelas birthday one day before my darling sisters birthday... so I would like to see her, I miss my friend!!!

then after como, (nothing is planned yet, just information gaining at the moment) I shall return again to Ravenna for a week or so here, then I would like to go to the Czech Republic for a few days, then I dunno... Brazil has been mentioned, and after these Australia was in the offing... as to whether I stay or return to italy depends solely on the relationship I am in now... as things stand I think to be in Australia for only a holiday... but again, the life is unpredictable and you never know what can happen in just one day!!!

As yet I have not booked any tickets, I have not done any organising, just thinking about what I would like to do, where I would like to go, how I would be doing it and who I would be doing it with...

As for photos, I will try to next week put some pictures on, but I have not found an internet cafe in this area which enables me to use my own computer... but I have just realised that I have a usb on offer on this computer... hehehehe, I ask, if I can I will update some photos today or tomorrow, but as it is a timely process, I will choose the picture carefully!!!

I go, write again soon, big kisses and love to all...
