So the night before I left for Florence, I had my last photo shoot for my clothes. My room was a mess when I got back from the half packing and trying to organize. Eventually everything came together. I managed to fit everything I need, art supplies, clothes and such into two large bags and one carry on.
My first flight from Newark to Frankfurt was 7 1/2 hours. Nothing too memorable happened. The flight from Frankfurt to Florence was more exciting. The plane flew over the Alps and before we landed we flew right over Tuscany. It was too amazing for words.
I arrived in Florence last night and was the first in my program to check in to the youth hostel so lucky for me, I had my own room for the night.
