First stop in Italy is Bologna ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น. In Bologna, I had the opportunity to visit a long-time friend (and her daughter) who I met in San Diego but have not seen in over 8 years ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Ilaria Gioia. She was an amazing tour guide, taking us to wonderful local restaurants and all over the town; and, introducing us to her entire family. ๐Ÿ’• Michael and I had a brilliant time with themโค๏ธ I will definitely come back to see her and her family in Bologna again ๐Ÿ’– A beautiful old old town with great history, great food, great memories… ๐Ÿ™Œ. Thank you very much for everything, Ilaria XOXO ๐Ÿ˜˜
