I cannot believe that this is my fourth week in Italy! I swear time is really flying by fast and I’m just getting use to living here. Last weekend I went to visit the city of Pompeii, Carpi and Naples. The trip was through the school and I had a wonderful time with the other students. While I was in Naples I’ve realize that there are more locals around the city and less tourists which was nice because in Florence all you see is tourists everywhere and the locals would come out at night to socialize. Which would be difficult because other students and I are trying to find locals around our age to socialize and hopefully be apart of the community. Luckily, at Florence University of Arts has a program called ChatPal, which place locals with international students similar to our age and will help us with our Italian and also show us around the city. Which I am sooo excited for! and also I’ve decided to volunteer at a Middle School to help Italians with their english, which is awesome.
Anyways back to the trip! I cannot believe that I actually went to visit Pompeii!!!! It was amazing walking in the streets and allies where others had walked and also visiting houses, bakeries, and restaurants that were destroyed by a volcano eruption in 79 AD. I felt like I went back in time, it was such a overwhelming experience in a good way of course :). I cannot believe that I actually checked that goal off my bucket list!
Here is some pictures of the historical city!
Capri was an incredible experience! Sadly, the weather wasn’t good enough for us to visit the Blue Grotto, but we had a boat ride around the island which was breathtaking! and their food was delicious!
This weekend a few friends and I are traveling to Venice, Italy this weekend to explore around the city, which I am thrill about! My goal is to go the boat ride around the city and also buying me mask, which they are very famous for!
