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

Why am I so behind? Here's a summary of my life for the past couple of weeks.

26 April 2012  Boboli Gardens
Today was my very last class for the semester. I have to exams and a paper left. I can't believe how fast it's gone. I still have many of my mom's pictures to take. I got one today and headed to the Boboli Gardens to find two more. I spent an hour walking around them and didn't find either. I can't believe how expansive the gardens are.

25 April 2012  Fiesole
I have wanted to visit Fiesole all semester. I finally got to Wednesday on Italian Liberation Day when we didn't have school. Jessica, Kate and I took the bus up to the small town on a hill for dinner and the sunset. It was so peaceful. 

23 April 2012  Finals
The title says it all.

22 April 2012  Venice
We had about three hours of free time Sunday. It started to storm for it. I couldn't even be mad after the two gorgeous days we had despite a forecast of rain. And even storming, this city is beautiful.

In between a couple of visits to churches/museums, I got to wander through the city. I never stopped being amazed by it. I don't think I ever will be.

20 April 2012  Gondola
It stopped raining. I was in Venice. I rode in a Gondola. What else do I need to be happy?

18 April 2012  Rain, rain go away. Come again when I'm in the USA.
This is the only picture I took between my weekend trips, but it's a pretty accurate description of the entire week. It just rained and rained and rained.

15 April 2012  Pompei
And this lovely weather was the perfect cap to our rainy weekend in Amalfi. It may have been from under an umbrella and while looking like a wet rat, but at least we got to see Pompei and Mount Vesuvius. 

14 April 2012  Reggia di Caserta
We were supposed to go to Positano today. Due to the thunderstorms predicted for the entire day, we switched our itinerary. We saw a castle and ate a meter of pizza instead. Fair enough trade.

13 April 2012  Capri
This wasn't exactly what we had in mind when we headed to Capri.

11 April 2012  Piazza della Santissima Annunziata
For class today the Italian composition class took us to Piazza della Santissima Annunziata. They told us about the area in Italian. I only caught about 25 percent of it. I wish I could speak Italian well. It started pouring as we walked back home — a good preview of our
