Can I say culture shock?! I am stunned at how beautiful this country is. I don’t have words to describe how beautiful this country is. I am traveling a lot and have so many trips planned I don’t know how I will get everything I want to do in to the trip. I have family here in Italy and I got to see them on my 20th birthday which was amazing. I am so thankful for this trip, I don’t want to go back to the states. The food is amazing, the coffee is strong and delicious, and the people are wonderful if you speak Italian. I don’t want to leave. I have so many pictures and not enough words to describe them. This culture, is so full of history and has so much significance I have a hard time believing everything I have and will go see were built so long ago, it’s amazing they are still standing, and it’s more amazing how they built these building so quickly without the technology we have now. I love this picture because we see the Firenze Duomo, the Uffizi and the tradition stick trees that are all over Italy. This picture was taken in the outskirts of Florence and on top of the steps at la Basilica di San Miniato al Monte. A beautiful church over looking beautiful Florence.
