I have finally made it to Florence, Italy! The journey getting here was a learning experience and quite eventful to say the least. The last few days have consisted of getting settled into my apartment, meeting my 4 new roommates and finding my way around the amazing and beautiful city of Florence.
On my way home from a long day of venturing around Florence, Alex (my roommate) and I came across a wine and cheese shop with many free samples. Being new to Florence, we got sucked in (the samples were delcious!). We bought Chianti (wine), salami, and a twist to a classic cheese cheese with red grapes on the outside.
Once we made it home all of my roommates and I made dinner and taste tested everything, it was delizios!

A quick prayer for travelers: Lord Jesus be my companion, guide, and guardian during my journey; deliver and protect me from all danger, misfortune and temptation; that being so defended by Your divine power I may have a successful journey and arrive safely at my destination. For You are where I place my trust. Amen 🙂
