We made it! We spent four days in the wonderful city of Rome and we just arrived in Florence this afternoon. All of the sites are really extraordinary! However, I think the most interesting experiences I have had so far has to be with the culture. Since I do not know the Italian language, it was definitely hard to do things that come so easy to me back home (like being able to order pizza and ask for directions). After a day or two it became easier and I have been trying to speak more of their language even if I pronounce it wrong but confidence is key (even if it is embarrassing). Rome was amazing and I can't wait to go back in a couple of days! Hopefully Florence will be just as amazing as Rome!!
Ciao For now!
My name is Tara and I am from Dinwiddie County, Virginia. I am a senior and majoring in Psychology. Tonight is my last night in the United States as I will be leaving for Italy tomorrow morning! I will be going to Rome, Florence, and Naples over a two week time span. Considering I have never flown before, I am pretty nervous and excited! My J-Term class is a Classics course that deals with the history of Italy along with the architecture of the many popular buildings. I am most excited about seeing everything in real life compared to movies and pictures. The next time I blog I will no longer be in VA!
