I am currently sitting in my favorite lodge in Jackson Hole, WY overlooking the Teton foothills. It’s early morning and my parents have yet to stir. The strenuous semester I just endured has my body trained for early mornings. As I wait for them, I have found myself looking back through photos from this summer in Italy. There are so many warm, colorful memories I never had the opportunity to share with you. So, I’ve decided to do one last “photo dump.” But trust me, this pictures are far from dumpy.
Below you will find the video I made about our trip. It will be used to recruit future students.
Charming little Italian men who would congregate on our street in the late afternoon for gelato and chit-chat. As I walked by, they would coo, “bella ragazza…” (Beautiful girl) They were delighted that I wanted to take their picture.
I think this would be an appropriate time to #relationshipgoals. Let’s lay on the beach and play word cross, darling.
Beautiful Venice and the pesky little birds…
Genova Cemetery. Eery, but ornate with beautiful architecture.
My cute little classmates and the mayor!
Evenings walks around the harbor were our favorite. The soft sound of local musicians wafting across the water was quintessentially Italian.
Loved out little seaport town.
The America Ambassador to Italy on 4th of July weekend!
Oh Florence, how I love you….
Ohh heeeeeyyyy David……
The Air B&B I stayed in was just around the corner from the Colosseum. That night, I ate dinner from where this picture was taken. The food was soooo gross, and overpriced because of the view. Our little Italian waiter tried to entice us into going out “exploring the city with him” that night… Yeah right, Mr… I’ve seen Taken and I know exactly what is going on here!
So as some of you might know, one of my camera lens hit the cobblestone a few days before I traveled to Rome. It was completely destroyed. So, the for the rest of the trip all I had was my lens that don’t zoom out… So I’ve got snippets of the Colosseum.
Life truly is beautiful–At home and abroad. Happy New Year to you and yours!
Thanks for joining in my travels!
