I don’t know how more than a month has passed since I last blogged, but it just completely slipped my mind! Since my last post, I’ve traveled all over Italy, which has been absolutely incredible!
My mom came for my spring break, and we spent some time in Florence, and then traveled to Pisa, Lucca, Cinque Terre, Orvieto, Rome, Naples, Pompeii, Salerno and Siena. It was a total whirlwind but we had a blast! It was so fun to have her here, and it was great to be able to show her around Florence, especially because it feels so much like home now! My favorite stops during that trip were Pompeii and Salerno, but every city was unique and beautiful in its own way.
After spring break, my boyfriend came to visit which was also amazing. Because I had classes, we spent most of the week in Florence, but we also visited Pisa and Rome, and one of my favorite cities so far, Venice. Venice was everything I had hoped for- everything looked like it was straight out of a postcard, and the gondola ride was so much fun! I could definitely see how people would get lost there though- the labyrinth of streets would be very new and overwhelming without a map.
Since my visitors left, things have been fairly quiet here. I visited Milan and Lake Como this past weekend, as well as the beach city of Viareggio. Being able to travel to such beautiful destinations almost every weekend has been so incredible.

We also got to go to a Fiorentina soccer game- what a blast! It was so fun to be able to participate in a local past time. Florence won 1-0!
I’m looking forward to the international travel that is coming this month- Paris and Munich are on the calendar!
