      ... European snacks for an indoor picnic. Cheese, grapes, sun dried tomatos, olives, brushcetta crackers with mayonnaise dip made for a pleasant feed. And to top it all off we finally found Strongbow cider for 1.50 in the bottle store opposite us. I had definitely been missing that stuff. Nice. The following day Dani and I climbed the Duomo and admired the fake David (no need to see the real one), and after a power nap at the hostel (117m staircase pushed me over the ...

      Both of the main courses came with their own kinds of wine to try as well, so if you were keeping count, this meant ...

      ... in a great location, fine minutes from the duomo and a short walk to everything else. We had our own room in this hostel which was really nice. The shared rooms with a bunch of people are good but it's nice to not have to be quiet 24/7. I got in contact with my two friends, Lexi and Amanda, that study in Florence for the semester. One goes to Quinnipiac and the other is a friend from home. Lexi ended up being five minutes from our room so we went to meet up with her to say hi and what ...

      After the cancelled flight debacle in Frankfurt, I have finally touched down in Florence!

      There was a rather large pack of Lorenzo d' Medici students waiting at baggage claim at the Florence airport so all of us split cabs to the city center and our meeting point to sign in and pick up our apartment keys before we all headed off to our respective apartments to unpack and get some much needed rest ...
