The Game Plan

Florence, Italy
So this is a handful of what I think I know... 1. Hands speak volumes. 2. Wine is cheaper than water. 3. Life is slower paced. 4. Food is AMAZING. 5. Italian men love all women and don't hesitate to say it loudly. My adventure begins Jan 12 in Florence, Italy, as a student at SACI (Studio Art Center International) having come from American University, in Washington, DC. While our nation's capital may have a plethora of monuments and history, it's nothing compared to standing a few feet away and gazing up at David, or so I've been told. (I'll let you know.) I continue my European exploration with my twin sister when our semesters end. We plan to take our backpacks into and over as many countries and borders as possible before landing for a few weeks revisiting Madrid. I hope to use this blog as a personal journal to keep track of my travels, but feel free to read along! Al prossimo anno! :)

A Sad Day

This was my post from Wed... opps. 
Susan, my roommate as I mentioned in my first post, left for the states this morning at 5 am.  She can’t hear out of one of her ears and it hasn’t gotten better for the past few weeks. No one can give her an answer of what it is and three ear doctors later the ear specialists suggested she go home and figure it out. We’re hopeful she’ll be back within the week, but for now just Rich and I will have to hold down the fort. Get better and come back to us soon Susan! <3 

On top of that, the peanut butter I brought from the states is now gone! Don't get me wrong, peanut butter is sold here but the jar about 1/3 the size of a normal peanut butter jar is sold for about 5 euro which is around $7! I can't bring myself to pay that. Susan plans to bring 2 monster jar when she comes back... which is just another, of course minuscule reason, I can't wait for her return. 
Good thing this all happened on Wednesday because it's now Friday so it's tragedy of the past.
