Happiness is…

fresh fruit daiquiris on the Italian Riviera

lemon gelato

cinnamon gelato


Derek singing Rhianna every morning

anything Derek says

the Tweakers

the sauna pre-game room

group dinners

red wine

Prosciutto and Melon

riding a bicycle outside Arezzo’s city walls


walking through a train station to go to class

Caffe Machiattos

buying souvenirs

live bands in old piazzas

2 euro movies at blockbuster italy

field trips

learning how to speak italian (not)

figuring out train schedules without any help!

Panna Cotta with Audrey in Florence

churches, baptistries, duomos — understanding all 3.

anything involving laughing

packing to go to Switzerland

— and,

taking all of this with me for the rest of my life. Like Dylan said this morning, we may be going home (tomorrow or a week from today), but we’re not through with this journey. You don’t know how much you’ve grown until you try to fit back into your old place. I can’t wait to see how these lessons and this trip has changed my view of the world, and I can’t wait to get back to my family & the people who matter most! Up next: Interlaken, Switzerland 😀
