Lates America.

After some sad goodbyes.
3 layovers.
No sleep. 
and lots and lots of traveling.
I made it to Venice. 

This place is unreal. 
It still hasn't hit me yet that I'm across the world.
and eating gelato.
and riding in gondolas.
and using euros.
and taking pictures every 2 steps.

Is this real life?
I can't understand a dang thing.
And jet lag is killing me. Literally. Laying in bed right now like a dead person. 
But hey...this is cool stuff!
Si? Si. 

Hey B! Come to Italy so we can makeout on a bench in Venice. Please?!

My blogger is all in Italian. Help?
No makeup or hair doing. That's my plan.
My hotel is smaller than small. and hotter than hot.
I tried to break in my Toms today. They broke my feet instead. 
Seriously. Life is so great!
I think I'm in love with it. 
Hi Mom!


  1. Sorry to be such a stalker. But I LOVE your blog. I hope you keep it up even when you get immersed in the life and people. Good Luck and thanks for blogging.

  2. Hey Riki, I'm glad you're there safe. Don't worry it took us about two weeks to fight off the jet lag. It takes awhile for it to sink in that you're not just around the corner from home, but you get used to it. You will do great, and I'm excited for you. You're going to love this experience!

  3. Hi Rik!!!!! Thanks for the shout out.....I cried all the way home from the airport while Dad sang to the I-Pod....sorry B - awkward! I'm just smiling from ear to ear reading your Blog. I love you so much and can't wait to see you! (probably a little too soon to be saying that seeings how you haven't even made it to Romania yet.) Take care and BE SAFE!!!! remember, no less than 10 people at all times. I only saw 4 in your pics. Find 6 more bodyguards so I can sleep at night.

  4. Um we love you! And so excited for you!... And just a wee bit jealous!

  5. So glad you are having a wonderful experience and I'm sure the wonderful experiences will continue. Thanks for sharing your fun adventures. I will fill Kynsie in on all of them. (In fact...I'm going to email her right now.) Hope you got my email address (if it is again ) so I can continue to read about your Romanian adventures! Oh, and Kylee wanted me to tell you "HI"! As I was laying with her last night, out of the blue she asked me, "Has Riki left to go to Romania?" She just LOVES you!!! :) Be Safe!

  6. This is so cool. Make sure you take pictures with YOU in them. Otherwise you can just buy a postcard. Soak it up Babydoll! The experience will last a lifetime.
