It’s officially been a month since I arrived in Florence. The first week was pretty laid back – getting to know my roommates and attending orientation was pretty fun. Then came the second week, with the start of classes and a little bit of homesickness.
The costs of studying abroad are adding up quickly. After a 16-hour journey from Philadelphia, I have finally arrived in Florence. And with that comes a hefty price on pizza, pasta, wine and even water.
