italy... in kell's words

Below are some experts from one of the last e-mails Kelly-Anne ever sent. She was updating all of us on her activities during her Italy trip...

Hello everyone!

I am in Viareggio and have been for the last week. It is a very nice place here, rich so i hear. Our hotel is on the beach, well across from it.

So far I made it to the quarter finals for surf ski. In the quarters I was with all of the aussie stars...I guess you could figure the rest out. However I had a wonderful race.

In the paddleboard and rescue board event and priority event in the pool I was just one spot away from going to the quarter finals: I was really upset with those finishes, however I did really well in each event...some personal best you could say.

The surf for the last two days has been really good...a little too good. I got rocked a few times by the waves...not that yes feeling i was looking for. In the end I surfed some good waves on my ski and paddleboard, even body surfed a bit.

I just ate a great seafood dinner. I shared it with Phil. It was 1 kg for 7.71 euros...all sorts of fish and squid.

I went to Rome on wednesday. It was wonderful. I went to the Vatican too and climbed to the top of the St Peters Basillica. AMAZING to be in that church, it is HUGE.

I will try to write again later.
