There are so many reasons why I love going to Warsaw...in the summer, when it's warm. Besides having a lot to offer, another reason to visit Warsaw is that you will feel extremely generous all of a sudden. The exchange rate is around 1EUR = 4.30 Polish Zloty.
Most of us remember studying the WWII, because it's not like we had a choice to skip it. Somehow it's a part of history that fascinates me, because after all it happened so recently that most of our grandparents were there. Sometimes I wish I asked them more questions about it. Since I missed that chance, I decided to visit the Warsaw Uprising Museum. Not expecting much from a museum, I was impressed how well it tells the story of the Uprising.
Civita Castellana, located in the heart of Italy, is a city about 50km north of Rome. It's a very underrated city, so I thought I would share some pictures with you that I took this weekend.

It's only the most adorable movie. I could never get tired of it.
Here are some images I picked.
Why did the Renaissance start in Florence? One reason is that the republican city state placed the middle class people in power, rather than the nobility.

The family quickly understood that to sponsor not only the political system, but also artistic accomplishments served them as a promotion of their wealth and power.
You can learn more about history visiting Florence, than you could ever in a classroom - you will remember every detail of history you hear about Florence. At least that is what happened to me. So if you ever are lucky enough to study abroad or travel to Italy, I would suggest Florence as the perfect place to do it.
One of the reasons I don't like visiting museums is because I don't know the "back story" or the details to remember and observe the art pieces - often they all look the same to me. With Florence it's different, there is so much history in one city that you cannot avoid hearing about it.
