1993diaries asked: Wow. Italy. Did you have fun there?:) Who were you with? I love your life!
I was with two of my really close friends from high school & Yes, It was lovely and all of the food was AMAZING (especially the gelato haha)! It was one of the best trip I have ever taken! Everyone there is so warm and welcoming, they all make you feel right at home!
WELL. Here we are. Betya didn’t think I was coming back, did ya? To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t totally sure either…but here I am typing away. I’m afraid my dedication to tumblr (bahah dedication, i kid myself) got lost amid christmas preparations, last parisian outings with friends, and homesickness (something I won’t get into unless you want to hear me complain about my first world problems. you don’t? good, me either).
2013 has swiftly come around the corner (. . a month ago, but let’s pretend it didn’t take me 4 weeks to get around to finishing this post haha) and unlike most years I don’t have a ridiculously long list of goals. . at least not yet. I looking forward to a LOT of big changes in my life (moving to New York City being the most exciting of all), so I am just trying to take things as they come.
more very soon.
p.s. I will be playing catch up and adding a few posts about study abroad (along with other types of posts) in the coming month, just to wrap everything up.
powsama asked: Your blog is the one i'm searching for. A daily life and lovely blog :)
You are too sweet, thank you! xx
One lovely week in Italy.
We started in Florence, where I ate far too much gelato (but then again, what is too much?haha) and I got to catch up with an old friend who is studying abroad there. It was such a nice change of pace.
The second half of the week was spent in Cortona. A tiny hamlet about an hour train ride away from Florence. I arrived there on my 21st birthday and I could not have asked for a lovelier day. I started teh day with an american breakfast (a cheese omelette, toast with butter, and BACON. ACTUAL AMERICAN BACON.) and a pot of tea. The rest of the day was spent traveling, but traveling in Italy was so easy, and the views from the train were so beautiful, that I didn’t mind at all! We got to Cortona around 5, took a cab to our adorable bed & breakfast, and then headed out in search of dinner. Everywhere we ate in Cortona was delicious (much better than Florence, and I never thought I would say that haha), but my birthday meal with definitely my favorite: Gnocchi, Bruschetta, and a glass of prosecco. delight.
I have to say that the longer I spend abroad, the more I realize that my favorite moments are the ones spent relaxing. Whether it be in a Cafe in Paris, or talking with friends while overlooking the beautiful tuscan countryside. Those are the moments that I fall in love with.
