Lovin' On My New Home
A beautiful city, an instant connection with 7 girls and the experience of a lifetime. It's official I am all moved into my new apartment in Florence, Italy. I am in awe of this city and just can't believe I get to call this place home until May. The Duomo is not only 15 steps from my apartment, but is the most beautiful landmark I have ever seen. The carvings and colors make you never want to take your eyes off it. My apartment has the most perfect location and my roommates have made my experience better already. My first week here has consisted of endless exploring, getting lost and taking in the bliss and high fashion of this place. The food is amazing, the wine is to die for and the night life never ends.
There is so much more of the city to see but so far my days have consisted of walking the water by the Ponte Vecchio, crossing the water to Piazzale Michelangelo (a view that overlooks all of Florence), being confused in the grocery store, exploring the streets and cafes, learning that espresso is the only coffee to drink, and don't even get me started on the Gelato. The pictures don't do this place justice. Everyday I walk around with my jaw dropped because there are no words to explain the history tucked into every nook and cranny of this city. To say the least, Florence has been nothing but amazing! I can't wait to keep exploring and sharing my favorite places!
