Jarnick would like to go to the match:
US Palermo against Juventus.
so we drived to Stadio Renzo Barbera,
to see the match
The match was really nice because the fantastic goals of US Palermo.
then we were driving to home to eated and sleeped at a local hotel
the next day we've bin to the Cliffs
after some jumps we've eaten some arancines
Jarnick thought it was a crunchy deep-fried meatball
But there was nothing but rice in it
Nick was really tired and wanted some sleep
so we were going to our appartement and sleeped some hours
it was Saturday (our last day) and Jarnick wanted to jump of the Cliffs,
so we were walking to the beach .
at the beach we meeted our friends again,
it was very nice to see them and having fun with them.
after that it was very hard to say goodby.
