Christina’s Blog – Hello from Italy!
Hello Central Illinois, this blog is coming to you all the way from Italy! I wanted to give you a brief look into my past few days here in Italy. It's been a whirlwind and non-stop,but an amazing experience.
It was so surreal, these are sights we see in our textbooks, and there I was standing there looking right at them! Oh yea did I mention we went to the famous Spanish Steps and a pigeon flew straight into the side of my head! Yes, talk about a grand welcoming; not to mention I'm not the biggest fan of birds ha.
Florence is beautiful! We went to the Deumo and also saw the famous statue of David and of course shopped on the Ponte Vecchio Bridge in the gold shops. We took a day trip to Pisa where we actually got to climb to the top. It was such an unbelievable experience with amazing views of the town and countryside.
