And I have arrived. After a long sequence of flights and loitering around airports with poor internet access I have made it to Florence. It's been a surreal few days. With the relatively short notice we were given I don't think I had wrapped my mind around the idea of going. Next thing I knew I was kissing Reece goodbye at the airport and embarking on a some-what solo overseas adventure for the second time in two years.
I'm yet to check into the hostel I'm staying at before student accommodation opens in a few days. However I have had time to walk around a reorientate myself with the city. Here are a few snaps.
