Italy: Day 6 (and 7)

Italy: Day 6 (and 7)

When I started this whole Italy recap thing, I swear I didn’t intend for it to take TWO FREAKING MONTHS. But it has. Life happens, what can I say? So. Our last full day in Italy. We got to sleep in again (which was good because the day-long trip to Florence was pretty tiring!) We… KEEP READING »


Italy: Day 5

Italy: Day 5

It is hard to believe that more than a month has passed already since we got back from our trip. And I’m still recapping the days! I apologize for being so slow lately.. I’ve been busy with the usual stuff and bit distracted from my blog. But, I am going to try to be better… KEEP READING »


Italy: Day 4

Italy: Day 4

Okay! Still with the Italy recaps! I’m slow. Sorry. Thursday was our free day, meaning we didn’t have any scheduled tours or ‘excursions’ as they liked to call them. So for one thing: WE SLEPT IN. The first few days we were fine, running on adrenaline and excitement. But after 3 days in a row… KEEP READING »

Italy: Day 1, Addendum

I forgot one good story from our Day 1 adventure. Remember the screw? It’s officially gone. I went into the bathroom at JFK airport before our flight to take out my contacts and put on my glasses. When I took my glasses out of their case, I noticed the screw was missing. I smiled of… KEEP READING »


Italy: Day 1

Italy: Day 1

We left for Italy on Saturday (May 13) from Pittsburgh. We flew to New York’s JFK airport, where we had a 4 hour layover- fun! Especially since the airport hadn’t turned on the A/C yet so it was nice and steamy. We hung out in a bar and ate sandwiches and waited until it was… KEEP READING »
