    A life-changing phone call, huh?

    Well, you’ve definitely got the hang of that building-the-suspense thing… :-)

    Only 7 cups of gelato in 10 days? You have a lot of self control. And a life changing phone call? Okay, you have my attention.

    Love, love, love! I’m hoping to study abroad in Italy at some point, and this makes me even more excited! Can’t wait to hear about everything (including this mysterious phone call!) :D (Also, only 700 photos? My count would be in the thousands)

      Italy is amazing and I’m sure you would love it. (Most artistic sorts would have a hard time not loving it, I think.) Do you know where or what you want to study there?

    Right now I’m considering a program where we spend half a semester in Florence and half a semester in London studying art history, culture, and literature!

    I can’t wait to hear more! We’re supposed to go to Italy this summer, so I’m researching the must-see’s.

      I’m no expert, but if I can be of any help, please feel free to ask! I’m going to blog more about Italy in the next week or so, but basically we visited Rome, Florence, and Venice, along with a couple day trips (Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, hillside towns of Tuscany, Bologna).
