As I sit here leafing through six guides to Italy (hey, a girl's gotta do her homework), I can only dream what life will be like come August.
Studying in Florence has been in the works for quite some time but became official about a month ago when my friend and I put in our deposits to study abroad. I sit now with an appetite for the Italian culture and culinary treats.
I think some of the best observation and insight into a culture is shared through a meal so that is exactly how I plan to embrace Italy. Whether it be learning to cook in the Tuscan countryside or enjoying a latte at the local corner cafe, I'll make Italy my home away from home. I'll of course study a little too.
The plan is to leave Sunny California with one of my best friends, who will be studying at Oxford (smartypants), to jet off to Ireland for a few days. Around the 31st I'll settle in at my new home, Firenze. From there, my journey is uncharted. I can only promise it will include LOTS of Pasta, followed by a long walk (I just managed to shed the Freshman 15), and me attempting to become fluent in Italian.
Until then, Buon Appetite!
