Our GREAT adventure to Florence, Italy began very early this morning. After only sleeping for a few hours, we woke up at 5:30..well before the sun came up. After making it to the airport, Dani and myself met up with Steve and quickly made it through security without any problems. Which is a miracle considering we all are wearing huge "turtle" backpacks and additional stuffed carry on luggage. Steve is a brave soul, only packing his turtle backpack filled with his massive cameras and endless supply of electronics and a carry on, while Dani and I over packed bringing 2 carry on items and also checking 45 pound bags for our 6 week adventure. One day, I will learn not to over pack.

Currently, we are enjoying our 5 hour layover in the Dulles International Airport. Upon arrival, we were not too impressed with the airport. It is "cold" and doesn't have too much character. On the up-side, we were able to find a Chipolte and sat down for a little to eat and mentally prepare ourselves for the long travels that lie ahead.

By 8 am tomorrow morning, we will be arriving in Rome. After we arrive, we will have to wait till 3 pm to meet up with the rest of the study abroad crew, who will be flying in from Paris. That should be 9 am American time. We are all really excited to just enjoy the beauty that is Europe and cant wait to see what lies ahead. We are going to try our best to post new videos, pictures and posts each night, if not every other night.

Parlare con te quando si arriva in ITALIA!
