I made it to Italy!!! Finally! it was such a process getting here! I landed in Germany at 6 am there time and I was suppose to leave at 12:50 for Florence. But no. At 12:00 they cancelled our flight and there was a group of about 20 of us that had to scramble and figure out what to do. So we were eventually able to all get on a 5:50 flight that took us to Bologna(an hour +), where a bus took us to Florence airport (about an hour ride) then we had to take a taxi to our hotel. Despite all the misery travelling it was soooo worth it!! When I got to the hotel I needed someone to pinch me because I couldn't believe I was finally here. The hotel was absolutely gorgeous and perfect. You could feel the history in the building. The name of the hotel is Hotel Baglioni and the pictures can speak for themselves. I didn't get in until about 11:00 and they gave us a box dinner which wasn't too bad. I got up into the room, once i made 2 trips in the elevator bc u can only fit 2 people and take a suitcase each in the elevator bc its soooo small, i woofed down the food and hopped into a nice hot shower and thoroughly enjoyed it because it would be one of the last ones i would have because we have to shut our showers off in between shampooing n conditioning n such. then i made some phone calls home and passed out!
