I'm a film student studying in Florence and exploring Europe. My father was born in Italy and I have come here to learn about my heritage, expand my knowledge of other cultures, and find out more about myself.

6:30 PM Thursday.

I’m here! I made it! I run out of the plane saying ciao to everyone around me. The airport is nothing exciting… JUST KIDDING THERE IS GELATO EVERYWHERE. Yes, this is my country. I find my bags and make my way to the hotel. I want to explore but it’s late, I’m exhausted, and I’m by myself. At the hotel, I struggle to speak with the Italian desk clerk, finally get my gold, tasseled room key, and hike up eight flights (mountains) of stairs. There it is! The Duomo! Right outside my window. It’s breathtaking. Or was that just the stairs talking? But the moment I saw the bed in front of me I toppled over. I’ll just take a little nap then go explorzzzzZZZzzzzzzz.
