Cinque Terre (A must-see spot)

  Cinque Terre--with its meaning being '5 Earths,' this name could not be more perfect for a place that seems too beautiful and perfect to be real life. Before coming to Italy, I have seen many photos of this picturesque area, all of which made me dream about being able to experience this fairy tale land called Cinque Terre. Let me tell you, it was just as beautiful (if not more beautiful) in person, as it is described to be. Although each of the towns possess their own unique attributes, they all contain clusters of cute, colorful homes and the clearest blue waters that make you just want to dive right into them.

Welcome to Firenze!

Welcome to my new home for the next few months! It still seems surreal to me that I am actually currently breathing, living and eating in one of the most beautiful places in the world, and that I get to do it for the whole school semester! Although this is only my second week being here, I can already see why people stress what a great opportunity it is to study abroad in a foreign country/city. This is my first time ever being in Europe, and even by the first day of being here, I was in such amazement by the beauty that this city brings, along with the rich culture and lifestyle that the Florentines have preserved for so many years.  I have had high expectations for this city from the start, from hearing positive reviews and stories from friends and family who have traveled here before. But, being able to experience all of that firsthand is truly an incredible experience!
