Mt. Vesuvius

Guys, I am seriously out of shape. No matter how much I walk here (and I mean, we walk EVERYWHERE), it’s not the same as actually working out. Climbing up Mount Vesuvius was a true testament to my apparent lack of muscle and stamina. However, the view was well worth it. I think I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Take a moment to soak it all in. Xoxo Kendall


Positano, Italy

Everyone that I knew that had gone to Italy before told me the town of Positano is a must see, and they were right. The hype was well worth it. Even with gloomy skies, Positano is absolutely beautiful. We rode the bus from Sorrento into Positano, and let me just say I am so thankful for the RTS bus system in Gainesville. Here the bus drivers seem like try to drive as fast as possible to speed up the mountain. It’s a game of dodgeball trying to avoid hitting another bus/car/person as we all pray for our lives. Its quite funny actually to think about how we even survived. Anyways, after officially making it to Positano, we relaxed on the beach and explored the city. The highlight of the day was getting to see tons of cats, which of course made me the happiest of all (no I’m not a crazy cat lady, don’t judge me). I hope you are enjoying my time in Italy as much as I amJ Xoxo Kendall

Capri, Italy

Dress-Free People// Kimono-Free People

This weekend was probably my most awaited visit specifically because I just really love being by the water. Although a multitude of things seemed to go wrong, I honestly had one of the best times of my life. I mean this whole trip has really been such a crazy experience like one you see in a movie and think you will never have for yourself. You don’t think being in another country for a month will really change you until you actually go. Not to get too sappy, but I have met so many people that I couldn’t imagine not knowing (if that makes sense). My roommates and close friends on the trip are seriously amazing people. Although I wish we all met sooner, I know our friendship will continue to grow (and get weirder lol) once we are back at school. I could go on and on about this but lets not get crazy.

Pompeii gave me goose bumps. You would think that a city buried under volcanic ash would be in pretty rough shape, but in all actuality the city has so much character to it. Our tour guide was so proud of her city and the story of Pompeii. I feel like every Italian I meet here is so passionate about their culture and country. It’s honestly not something I’m used to back in the states. It makes me want to learn more about my own culture so I can proudly represent my country the way Italians represent theirs. Its weird how being in a new place makes you think about your own home in such a different light. Now I’m just rambling (maybe the wine is getting to me). Anyways, happy Thursday! Thanks for listeningJ xoxo Kendall

Siena + San Gimignano

Romper (similar)-Anthropologie// Sweater- Forever 21

If I could describe the atmosphere in Florence I would definitely say its much like New York. Very busy streets, a lot going on and shops lining every corner. Although I love the big city feel and hustle and bustle of Florence, it was refreshing to take a day trip to Sienna and San Gimignano to get a taste of the small town feel of Italy. Since both towns were quite small, there wasn’t a whole lot to do other than shopping and eating (which are actually my two favorite things so I’m not complaining). However, I really enjoyed just exploring the towns and taking in all of their beauty. In Sienna I had the most amazing lasagna, made by the cutest mother and daughter. Even though that was probably the best food I have had in Italy yet, I actually like San Gimignano better because it gave me more of a homey feel (and I also had the most amazing gelato of my life so you know that might have swayed my opinion too). If you get a chance I would highly recommend visiting either of these two cities. Xoxo Kendall
