Getting There, Part 6

Here are my snapshots from Florence. I joked with my parents that from my photos it doesn’t look like we did much, but it is really because you aren’t allowed to take photos at the Uffizi and Academia Gallery which houses some of the most amazing pieces of art. We visited both, seeing The David, Botticelli’s, da Vinci’s, Titian’s, and much much more. So enjoy what I could take photos of!

This will be my final post from the series. I write these on my computer in the car during our four- hour drive from Florence to Bellagio where we will stay the night, then set out in the morning to Freiburg! It has been a great trip and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing experience. I have seen a lot, and I am so grateful that my parents planned this trip. I have one and a half days to spend with them in Freiburg before they head back to Ankara and finish their tour. The next time I see them will be back in the United States! Well that’s all for now, look forward to posts about Freiburg, orientation and our first EU trip to Berlin and Prague!

I am a third-year student at Occidental College majoring in Diplomacy &amp; World Affairs with an emphasis on security. I am also a member of the women&rsquo;s varsity lacrosse team. I have been an active member with the Office of Student Life, participating and helping coordinate their Emerging Leaders Program. In my free time I enjoy going to Disneyland, finding a new TV show addiction on Netflix, and spending time with my friends. I love travelling and discovering new cultures. I am looking forward to starting this new journey, learning German and having the chance to photograph some of Europe&rsquo;s most historical and important cities!</span></p>
