Next week I will have the chance to be in Milan for the second time, and that's a good thing. The first time I went it was January and all I can say is, that I was happy to leave. Nothing dramatic happened, except that the weather was awful. I heard that winter in Milan isn't too pleasant, but after all I thought it's still Italy, can't be too bad. The first afternoon was fine, blue sky, I went on top of the cathedral it was beautiful. The second day it was snowing all day, but it wasn't the nice fluffy snow, it was muddy snow. Nevertheless, I am willing to give Milan a second chance.
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.
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.
1) The Colosseum, built in 70 AD in Rome, has over 80 entrances and can accommodate 50,000 to 80,000 spectators.
Personally, I don't know how they do it. Their food is rich in flavor, tastes like heaven and is consumed each time with tons of wine. Life isn't fair, it's not. Here are some nice places in Florence to eat their way.
It's only the most adorable movie. I could never get tired of it.
Here are some images I picked.
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.
For example, have you ever seen:
Have you ever fallen in love with someone or something and immediately regretted it, because the chances of having the same feelings returned was as likely as Kim Jong-un winning the Nobel for peace? When I was younger, I couldn't avoid having a crush on the boys who didn't even acknowledged my existence, although often we would sit in the same classroom. After too many years of repeating the same mistake, I learned to avoid falling in love with unrealistic targets. What does this have to do with the movie Frances Ha or New York City? After watching the movie I understood that I would have become Frances, if I had stayed in New York, after my one year of unpaid internship. During that time, I made sure I would not fall in love with this beautiful city, because I would not be able to afford it in the long-run. It's a magical city and I recommend everyone to see it, it's so good it's almost unrealistic. Frances Ha gives a very realistic view of living in NYC as an average person, and all the beauty and struggles it comes with. Frances struggles especially with achieving her career goal, but also with her friendship to Sophie and accepting that her ambitions are too high for what she can have at her current point in life. She reminded me of that quote, "The root of suffering is attachment," because she was attached to her ambitions. I would lie, if I said I never get attached to anything, especially my less realistic ambitions.
