So my time in Abano has come to an end, my contract with the summer school has finished, I’ve said goodbye to my awesome students, wished my fellow teachers well on their return to the UK and with heavy heart bid farewell to my incredibly host family. I’m sure I’ll be seeing them again, there’s already talk of their son coming to the UK to practise his English with my little brother and get to visit England so I’m sure that we will remain in contact. I have absolutely loved staying with these wonderful people who have made me feel part of their family and shown me the best of their town. I feel like I’ve made some real friends rather than just been provided with somewhere to sleep for the last fortnight.
But, of course, it’s onwards I must go and after hours of perusing workaway and some major indecision I’ve booked a flight down to Sicily for Wednesday to work in a hostel for three weeks. The whole booking a flight five days before I travel thing doesn’t quite fit in with my super budget plan but the place looks beautiful, a gorgeous city with stunning beaches and some more sunshine. I’m heading to Venice for a few days before flying down so I’ll be staying in a super budget canvas tent a short shuttle bus from Venice island to counter my Ryanair splurge.
