It feels so long since my last blog post. Right after I got home from Italy it was St. Patrick’s Day, which is also the day I got my phone stolen. Bummer. However, I feel the two week break I had away from constant social media was a much needed mental break. It also made me realize how much I truly do love blogging and being part of this community. So with that being said… I’m happy to be back at it!
For our spring break myself and a few friends decided to go to Italy. I’ve been before and it is one of my favorite places ever. It has the most relaxing vibes and is overall just a wonderful place to be. We stayed in Florence, right in Piazza dell Signoria, with a gorgeous view from our Air Bnb (Air bnb is always the way to go!).
We spent our first day in Florence exploring the beautiful city. There were so many restaurants, cafés, and most importantly gelato shops. Fun fact: We ate gelato everyday we were there. We walked to the river, explored the street vendors, and walked to Piazzale del Michelangelo. Let me tell yah…this place was magical. You may have to climb about a million stairs to get there, but it was well worth it. At the top you’ll be greeted with a breathtaking view and hopefully a nice Italian man playing the guitar.
Day 2 we journeyed to Rome where our strength was continuously tested. Whether it was paying a shocking 100 euro for a train ticket, getting lost, or almost missing our train, we just couldn’t catch a break. Despite these drawbacks, we still had an amazing experience and saw basically all of Rome in one day. We made it to The Trevi Fountain, The Vatican, and The Colosseum. Still counts as a win in my book!
We wanted our last day to be low key so we took a bus to Sienna (much cheaper than the train to Rome). Sienna was different from Florence and Rome, but provided us with the small town atmosphere we were needing. We indulged on food and drinks and relaxed in the sun for most of the day.
Overall, Italy has stolen my heart:the people, the accents, the wine, the views, the everything. Ciao for now Italy, until we meet again!
PS. Here is a throwback pic of me in Italy eight years ago!
Have a Delightful Day,
