Reading Week 2006 – Day 0

It wasn’t technically Reading Week, but I’ve never really had a perfect attendance record anyway. Besides, from a Canadian perspective, the Olympics were so close to Denmark.

I apologize now for this overly lengthy description of our trip. To summarize: we went to the Olympics, as well as Florence, Venice and Milan. It was fun. If you want more details, please keep reading.

Our trip got off to a bit of a shaky start. As we were about to board the plane, Marieke noticed that she had lost her jacket somewhere in the airport. Luckily, the Copenhagen is pretty small. Then, our discount flight to “Paris” really landed in Beauvais, which is an hour’s bus ride from the outskirts of Paris. Some might question why we would fly to Paris to start our Italian vacation, but the flight was really cheap and everywhere in Europe is really so close together. The next morning, it was only a four hour train ride to Torino…
