Europe: The land of food, men, & heat

Greetings America! I am so happy to be home! I had the lovely chance to travel to Italy and Greece for the last 3 weeks and boy was it a wild ride! From riding a donkey  in the hills of Santorini(apparently it is technicaly a mule?)to riding a gondala in beautiful Venice it has been amazing. However, with that there are some facts about Europe that I would like to clarify:

1.) You throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain and you meet boys. TRUE.
2.) You wear fashionable clothes in Europe. FALSE.
    Explanation: It is hotter in Italy and Greece in June then in the African desert in the summer. You might as well go naked.
3.)Cooking with Olive oil makes you thinner. FALSE.
   Explanation: I have never been so fat in my life.
4.) Your perfectly groomed hair flows in the midnight wind while you sit in the arms of a handsome Greek boy on his sail boat. FALSE & FALSE.
   Explanation: Hair dryers and hot Greek boys with boats do not exist in Europe. Thank you for getting my hopes up Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
5.) Greeks throw plates on the ground and scream "OPA!" FALSE
    Explanation: How I wish I saw this occur.

So there you have it folks. I conquered the Europe thing and I loved it. I met new people, ate a lot, and sweat a lot. How could life get any better?
