Getting to know Florence

A short one..

sunny 26 °C

Gabriella and I have finally arrived in Florence Italy. I've thought a lot today about my first impressions of the city, and it goes like this: this city creeps up on you. Unlike Venice, who's sailor-savvy locale will blow anyone away at first glance, Florence has given us a more realistic look at the genuine Italian lifestyle. Sitting back at our hostel, I can reflect that although our day wasn't jam packed with 'To see features,' I think it was one of my happiest days abroad. We just unpacked, learned the extremely complicated bus system, and strolled through the Renaissance playground. We wound up hitting a decent restaurant, and discovering the BEST Gelato I've had in life (Marshmallow Cake, Whipped Cream and Chocolate Cream flavours.. :P.).

We watched professional ballerinas practice outside the Duomo, and then called it a night. We are hitting the hay early so that we don't miss the Tuscany Bus Tour tomorrow at 8:15am. That's right: wine tasting and the leaning tower of pisa. Oo Yah.
