A Libra`s Adventure Abroad

Well the adventure has finally begun on September 1st, 2015 & I’m outta here. After over 6 months of planning I am finally studying abroad in Florence Italy at Florence University of the Arts. Arriving to the airport was where it all started. I was allowed to check in one bag that weighed 50lbs. So I confidently walked up to the checkin counter, because confidence is the key right?

São Paulo Fading

When I stepped out of the airplane in Miami, my first time back in the states after five weeks almost 5 thousand miles away from Alabama, the wave of humidity in the familiar Southern air greeted me—even though it was only 5am.
