Bus2alps first featured blogger is….Colleen Clark. Okay, so maybe it is a little corny that a Bus2alps staff member is this week’s featured blogger, but it is an appropriate time to tap into her enthusiasm to continue living the Florentine dream.
Back to Florence and I couldn’t be happier. After studying abroad here and working with Bus2alps since January, Florence really feels like home. While the faces of the students change from semester to semester, some things remain the same—my favorite panini shops, the sights, the sounds—and all are things that made me fall in love with this city. The new students each semester seem to rejuvenate Florence as well and I get excited to meet the new Florentines and hope that they leave Italy loving it as much as I do. The best part of my work is that I have the opportunity to meet so many great people, many of whom I keep in touch with and see when I’m back in the US. I met them in Florence, in Interlaken, in Budapest, in Munich, in Vienna and Salzburg, in Greece (although many probably don’t remember), and in the Amalfi Coast. Travel, friends and Florence, what more could I ask for?
