So I survived my first few days in Italy. I kind of wanted to wait to post this because it has been so overwhelming. I ended up getting a host mom who speaks no English whatsoever and has three cats that don’t let you pet them. I’m also the only person in my Italian studies group who lives on this side of the city. I’ve gotten lost on the bus about three times already and it took me an hour and twenty minutes to get home last night. So it’s been a little crazy.
I know that all sounds awful, but I’m slowly figuring out how to get around and it’s really nice. I mean my walk to school looks like this:
We also split a bottle of wine yesterday and the guy let us go on the balcony. If you look near the crane in this picture we were right below it.
We also spotted these three matching couples. We decided we’ll come back with our husbands one day and look just like them. Squad goals. (Photo credit: Courtney)
We tried our first Italian Gelato. It is way worth the hype. I had Coffee and I was incredibly awkward about asking it in Italian, but I managed the best I could.
So despite getting lost every time I take the bus, living with a stranger, and taking 4 days to figure out how to ask what the WIFI password is, I’m having the time of my life.
