One full day left on this experience that we call SCO in ROME. It’s hard to believe and very depressing. I can’t believe that in just in three days times I won’t be waking up to my roommates who became good friends of mine on this trip. I won’t be seeing every friend I’ve made over this month’s face every single morning and night for dinner. A month where oh where has the time gone. I feel like I’ve been here only a week. This trip was able to let me live my dream of coming and living in Italy, even if it was only for a short while.
New York to Dublin to Paris finally to Rome to start the trip. In Rome the most memorable memories from the first week were the Trevi Fountain, the outside of the Pantheon. We met Shoot4Change and started working with them immediately. Oh I can’t forget everyone on every Tuesday at Randy’s apartment for dinner and a movie. Now I’ve been from Rome to Amalfi Coast (Capri, Sorrento, Positano) Vesuvious then Erculano to Naples (even if it was only a few short hours). Then back to Rome we went exploring the war memorial “wedding cake building”, L’Aquila, and Cinecittà (as a film student visiting there was completely breath taking) what do you know the second weekend was vast approaching!
Florence one and a half days 3 nights. From exploring all around the city, to walking to the top of Piazza di Michelangelo, learning about wine, last but not least for Florence we all went to a karaoke bar. One day in Venice, where we wandered and got ourselves lost, ate take out pasta, and even had a Morano glass blowing demonstration. The last day of the weekend quickly approached we had a wine tour through tuscany where the food and wine were both to die for. Back to Rome again!
