ADL's in Florence [Activities of Daily Life]


So I've put up posts every week about what I did on the weekend. So tonight I wanted to share with you a few pictures of what I have been up to in Florence and the surrounding areas.

Wanderings in Settignano...

Cappucini + Theology = Perfect Combination

A beautiful Florence sky

Look! I'm actually studying abroad!
 Exploring Florence...
Exploring Ponte Vecchio and other places in Florence!

Random picture of an old man sleeping on a park bench

We visited San Miniato al Monte, a Benedictine Monastery in Florence 

The view from San Miniato al Monte! All of Florence is at my fingertips...

Dusk in Florence in front of Piazza Pitti

Me and my new amici Italiani! Daniele, Lauri and Chiara! They showed me around Florence!
Chiara and I from a look out point in Fiesole. All of Florence was lit up behind us. Bellisima!

Molto amici italiani! 

The lights over the river from Ponte Vecchio
 Experiencing Tuscany...
A church we stopped in during our visit to Panzano, a little city outside of Florence.

I can't see this picture. Can you? 
Katie and I tasting some amazing wine at the Accademia di Buona Guista! 

Stefano (on the right with the funny hat) was a great host! We tasted over 7 different wines under his direction!

Cutest couple award goes to... Katie and Brayson! 

Comedic entertainment for the day went to Pietro! 

Jenny and I love Accademia di Buona Guista!

Two peas in a pod. 

Stefano teaching Katie and Gabby how to taste olive oil. 1. Smell 2. put in the palm of your hand 3. Cover it with your other hand 4. Dance 5. Taste. Molto Buono!

Everyone, meet Umberto, Stefano's wild cinghiale.

Stefano made me kiss Umberto. Pietro said I will not have good fortune for my whole life! Thanks Pietro!

We have too much fun with Pietro. 
We graduated from Accademia di Buona Guista!

Stefano and his amazing hat.

Buona Guista!
Good times...
My classmates and our two fabulous Italian instructors!

We wanted to honor Daniele (only guy in the middle) and all do our hair like him! 

Walking to the bus stop is an activity of daily life hear in Italy.

The sunset on our walk. This night we were having girls night in Florence...

The girls and I at Tijuana, Mexican Food!!!! Complete with 1/2 off Margheritas!

Mi piace Mango Margherita molto!

Welp, that's all for now, folks! I love Florence and have been enjoying all the time I have here. It is crazy to think that I will be back in the U.S. in a month! Today, as we were driving through the rolling Tuscan hills, I was thinking to myself, "This is really my life... Weird." God is so good and I can't begin to express how blessed I feel!

You all are in my thoughts and prayers constantly! Lots and lots of love is being sent you way!
