I'm a 21-year-old journalism student. I spent last semester living in Florence, Italy. These are my adventures.

After graduating college, my mom and her friend Barb backpacked through Europe in 1982.
I decided to make it my mission to retake these pictures while studying abroad. So over Christmas break, I began transferring her 35mm slides to digital files one by one.
As a bonus, she gave me her journal from the trip. Once I get a chance to read it in its entirety, I will add excerpts (with your permission, mom) and explain what I was doing as well.
Until then, I will post pictures. Enjoy my view, exactly 30 years later.

Note: Although I will do my best, I refuse to stress over the exact angle and right lighting of these pictures. I don't have the time or the patience, and quite frankly, I hope to leave such compulsive behavior behind me.
Please enjoy the closest I can find to my mother's view.
