Travel Blogs from Florence


A travel blog entry by nickandnicole


Our day started early for us as the alarm went off at 7:30. We took the train from Rome to Florence today and got just a glimpse of the beautiful country side.

My first month in Florence

A travel blog entry by ljean

Anyway I wanted to include in this entry some updates after this week. Lets start with my new roommate. Her nameis Cecily and she showed up Thursday night. She's a 24 year old culinary student from Massachussetts. So I'm pretty psyched to have her cook me some food. She's really cool to hang out with even though the age difderence is a ...
