Julia (and everyone in my program) was very excited about the Trevi Fountain because of it’s importance in the Lizzie McGuire movie

We’re happy we made it to the end of the trip in Venice without hating each other, but sad that this means no more authentic Italian food.

The most commonly spoken word on this trip was “wow.”

I have spent the last week in Italy visiting Milan, Rome, Florence, Bologna, and Venice during the “mini-vacation” we had because of the two Spanish national holidays. Though the intent of the break may have been to give us more time to study for finals and write final papers, almost everyone in the program used it to travel (don’t worry, we all got our papers turned in!). My friend Julia and I spent the week eating delicious pizzas, climbing towers, and wandering through art museums. It was a whirlwind through Northern Italy, but it was incredibly delicious, relaxing, and beautiful.
