A rainy day in Florence

Ciao tutti!

Another Monday here in Florence and the weather certainly does not help. The rain never makes anyone want to get out of bed, but I really shouldn't complain because it is still warmer here in Florence than at home in New York.

I just returned back from Amsterdam last night which was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! For anyone that is interested in traveling while studying abroad (which is pretty much everyone) I would insist that you visit Amsterdam. The city was just so beautiful, it looked a like something from a story book. The houses are all bunched together in front of all of the canals that Amsterdam is famous for, with huge windows that overlook the city that made me want to curl up next to with a good book!

We left Friday morning and arrived in the later afternoon and then left Sunday evening so we did not have too much time but I still thoroughly enjoyed my trip. We saw the Amsterdam Block, the famous windmills, the infamous Red Light District and the Anne Frank museum.

The people in Amsterdam were extremely friendly and helpful. Their city is just so clean as well, everyone rides bikes there and uses public transportation. The city is very laid back yet efficient at the same time. I can honestly say that I could very well see myself living in Amsterdam that how enjoyable my experience was.

I hope everyone has a great week!
