This will be a short entry as we were only in Pisa for about 1 hour. Yes that's right, and the trains are to blame! So i got up bright and early (6 30am!) to talk to the family back home, (isn't it suppose to be them going out of their way to talk to me??) and was well and truly ready for our 8 10 train. Even early enough to get Macca's breakfast. However it was not good enough to satisfy my craving as it was ham and not BACON! i tried to ask for bacon but she just smiled and gave me ham (DAMN HER!). It was then that we were like what does "suppresso" mean, apparently it means cancelled due to weather. After waiting in line for half an hour the man was not helpful at all and we didnt think we would even be able to make it to pisa and get to Venice before 8 (lastest check in for our hotel).
Eventually we got an a train at 10 to Pisa. Getting on was a rush as we didnt have to reserve, pulling bags up the steps is getting more and more difficult. It was while we were looking for a cabin that I caught some one trying to pick pocket me! why does everyone go for me? is it the blonde hair? i would seriously change. But i caught him trying to get his hand in my bag and yelled so that catherine and katelyn would be aware of what he was trying to do. those sneaky basterds. It looked like it was all going to work. Then it starts raining and hailing. yup bad sign. By the time we actually got to the Leaning Tower of Pisa we would not make it back to make our connecting train. (Really starting to push our check in time now). I was very disappointed that (as it seems to be with my trip) we were not allowed on the grass. This made it difficult to do the "photos". Katelyn was very suprised that there was actually other buildings there and not just the leaning Tower of Pisa. I dunno what she actually expected.
I am currently sitting in the Lobby of the hotel on their free wi-fi. Why dont they just let us use it in our rooms. It would be much more helpful (especially when i was downloading tv shows :P). I am already loving Venice and its just like i remember it being. Apart from the bridges. with a heavy bag its really hard to walk up and down and up and down and up and down. Katelyn managed to get a male to help her once. That lucky girl. why does she get all the help and i get all the people trying to steal my stuff!
After spending a day in Venice tomorrow we are off to Paris. This is going to be a very difficult trip with lots of changes as everything was booked out. Lets just hope we get to Paris in time! Will hopefully be able to update when in Paris.
