Just arrived in Italy and it is so nice to be here.

Here’s the view from my room this morning….


And a fresh fruit & veg stall right outside….


After a wonderful breakfast, with gorgeous real coffee, we went for a quick tour round the beautiful cathedral and went to see the school for tomorrow.

Doing international events you come across different things in each place.

InΒ TanzaniaΒ we had to have morning tea, which was more like a full on breakfast, for everyone.

In Italy? Β It’s coffee!


Coincidentally the school had the word “Genki” up on the wall! πŸ™‚


Apparently the coffee machines weren’t set up, to which I, stupidly, but innocently, suggested that can’t we just have hot water pots and people make their own?

Ah, you should have seen the looks I got! Β  “We can’t serve American style coffee to Italians!” was the quick reply!

All ready to go!

Fingers crossed though everything looks really good, the coffee is sorted, the room and gear are ready and we have 85 people coming tomorrow.

I’m so sorry to everyone who couldn’t get tickets, but we just can’t fit anymore in.

We have the press coming tomorrow morning, the board of education officials and videographers, so hopefully you’ll be able to catch up with everything on the blog soon.

Now this afternoon I’m catching up on emails and I’m going to have to do a bit of Insanity to work off some of the calories from all the gorgeous food!


See you all tomorrow! πŸ™‚

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. When I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!

    Hi Richard!

    The best of luck for tomorrow! (But the calories could be handy on the day, too! :-))
