Cruise Control

Adventures! Yea! 
Hello everybody! How have you all been? I know it's been awhile since my last post and I apologize for that. This past week, honestly, has been just a cruise week. So I'm gonna try my best and make this post as exciting as it can be for all you readers! (Don't expect much).  This past weekend Javan, Zech and Trevor went to Napoli (Southern Part of Italy) with some Italian brothers.  Me and Luke would of gone but there was no room :(. But it's ok! We made the most out of it! So while the boys were having a blast in Napoli (You can look at there blogs and see all the awesome adventures they had without us) me and Luke had a whole bunch of our own little adventures right here in Bologna haha! So here we go!


The Friday the boys left, me and Luke joined up with the new Hawaiians that are now here in Italy helping out the Bologna English Congregation! They are Carlos and Lisa Ventura and Curtis and Denise Laa. Anywho that day we caught the train too Venice! How was Venice you ask? Venice was beautiful don't get me wrong but To tell you the truth, Venice was very disappointing haha. After all the water, canals, gondolas and glass stuff, there is nothing much. But thats just my opinion, you can come see it for yourself and say what you like. But Even though Venice was not the greatest, I still had a great time with the other Hawaiians.

The best part about Venice.... CHOKE GELATO!!!
The next day me and Luke got sick haha. How come? Well what happened was the night before when we got back from Venice, me and Luke decided to have milk and cookies. Now we thought the Milk was ok, at least, because it smelt alright. But when we tasted it, it didn't taste bad but at the same time it didn't taste good. So what we did was we covered up the not so good taste with Nesquik hahaha not the smartest idea. So Saturday me and Luke were forced to stay home for reasons I will not say haha.  That evening but we felt better and went to the where the new Hawaiians are living to have dinner with them and some other brothers and sisters. Only problem is we did not know where they lived. Did that stop us? No. But What happened after that? We ended up getting lost for like a hour somewhere in Bologna haha (I tend to get lost here alot). Thankfully Carlos helped us and we made it there alive haha. I'm so glad we made it because all Carlos them ended up making Hawaiian food! Like Poke, Pansit, and Adobo! Felt right at home :).

Cruisin @ MOKES House
Now Sunday! We had our meeting and at meeting Luke had microphone handling and I had Watchtower reading. So we were both pretty busy that meeting. That night we went to Andrea (The Moke) Burgo's house for dinner. At the Mokes house another new Hawaiian is there and he is Uncle Tom Arakawa! He served here in Bologna English Congregation last year with Javan and Zech, so he's technically not new. That night we ended up watching the European basketball Championship and then NBA basketball (They only show NBA games once a week here, so sad) and played an awesome board game called Scottland's Yard. Woot woot! haha. Overall It was a really fun night with them 2.

Board Games FTW!
So yes everyone that was my fun filled weekend with Luke! I hope all of you enjoyed reading about all the small adventures we had. I know your use to me posting more exciting and fun things but this was it for this week, so take it or leave haha. I promise more exciting posts sometime in the near future.  So until the next post, take care, serve Jah and see ya everybody! CIAOOOOO!!!

Meet Uncle Tom!


  1. Lolol uncle tom's face haha. Oh gosh erik haven't I taught you anything? No good taste means NO GOOD.

  2. Well at least you can say you've been to Venice even though it wasn't that great. Btw my friends and I use "choke" all the time now. I'm pretty sure we're using it wrong but it cracks us up. It's "choke" Florida style.
