I still can't stop thinking about my time in Italy. Not only was I able to see so many amazing sights, but I was able to eat a great amount of incredible food. Florence, specifically, is filled with so many amazing restaurants, cafes and gelato shops and I want to share some of the places … Continue reading Recommendations!
I've been home in Florida for almost two weeks but, I'm still sad about leaving Europe. Post Europe depression is real.

It's been almost one week since I've been home from Europe, and I'm sad to say the least. Florence was definitely a peak in my life and now I'm just following a downward slope.

We started off the week going on a Tuscan Wine tour and … Continue reading Nothing To Wine About
Ciao! After finally settling into Florence, starting first day of courses and being with my 4 other roommates, a sense of relief washed over me. I visited Florence last summer with my family but being here without them is a much different experience for me. I've been reminded that I LOVE Italy, especially Florence, more … Continue reading A Little Taste of Venice
As I embarked on my journey that I thought would lead me safely and smoothly to Florence, I quickly came to the realization that it would not be as safe and smooth as I originally planned.
