Never underestimate the power of mother nature.

You don’t have to wear makeup to look beautiful.

Appreciate each moment with your best friend. Remember what you’ve overcome together.

Never pass up an adventure. Even if it means cliff jumping into the Mediterranean from 65 feet.

Wear a bathing suit as often as possible. It’s freeing.

Eat pizza – and don’t skimp on the cheese.

 Find a Starbucks, even if that means traveling to Spain.

Appreciate time with your family – especially when they come to visit you in Florence. (And of course, miss your brother and sister, because they would LOVE it here.)

Just let yourself BE.

The title of this post is in German 🙂 I’m leaving in a few hours for Munich to celebrate the last weekend of Oktoberfest. Though I’m not a beer fan, I’m going to get myself a large stein of (light) german beer and enjoy it! Although I hear they have one mixed with lemonade 😉

I will be back on Sunday with a full recap!

Gelato of the Day

Lavanda e fruitti delli passione (lavender and passion fruit)

This was an interesting cone. The lavender was good for about 2 licks, but then it started to taste like pure lavender oil. And the passion fruit – not my favorite. But it was worth a try!



This morning I jumped out of bed, tied up my sneakers, and trotted to the nearest  cafe for a frothy cappuccino and an hour of studying. I have an Italian quiz this afternoon, and I’m a little rusty on my vocabulary 😉 I decided to walk through the leather markets afterward, and admired some beautiful art alond the way.

Currently I am packing for a weekend trip! After our 6pm Italian class, my roomates and I are headed to the Amalfi Coast for some cave swimming, cliff jumping, and hiking – and of course some delicious eats. We will be gone until Sunday night, so I will be sure to check back in with a recaps and LOTS of pictures. Have a great weekend!
