WOW. This first week here in Florence has FLOWN by. I don’t even know where to start.
This city is amazing. Everything about it is enchanting. Everywhere I turn my head theres something beautiful. Between the buildings, monuments, museums and street performers I’m not even sure where to look on my walk to class. My apartment is adorable, up on the top floor of the building thats right around the corner from Piazza Signoria. My best friend is my roommate here and I couldn’t imagine experiencing this with anyone else.
The first week was super busy. Right away I wanted to start exploring and seeing everything. After a hectic week of figuring out where my classes were (and getting lost a few times) I think I’ve got the routine down. My roommate and I wasted no time on planning our first adventure. On friday we took a day trip to Cinque Terre, which is Italy’s national park. Cinque Terre means 5 towns- which we hiked through. The views during our hike were absolutely stunning. I am still in awe.
Until next time…Ciao!
