Hey Guys so I know I haven't updated you in months however I have a good excuse! I have been living my exchange to the fullest. I have snowboarded the Alps, changed host families so that I'm now living on a farm! I went to Berlin with my school and got to go to the Premiere of The Lucky One and saw Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling. I went to Lake Garda with my first host dad, an amusement park with my class, celebrated the last day of school with all my friends, recieved my "good exchange student" certification, said goodbye to some amazing friends and now I am with another new family while my host family goes to Sardegna for the week.

Now you might be wandering why I didn't go with them well that is because on Monday I will be flying to Paris with one of my best friends, Giada, for 8 days! I know, you don't have to tell me, I am the luckiest girl in the world! Paris will be so amazing. Giada and I will be staying with the family of a friend of Giada's and we will get to experience the real Paris and not just the tourist Paris. Although we will be doing all the tourist things like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Louvre Muesem.

Tomorrow I have my final concert with my music school. I'm singing Ave Maria by Beyonce and I am also singing 4 songs with the choir. The choir is comprised of the students hand selected by our Meastra, Monica! I have had so many amazing opportunities with this music school and I am so sad to say goodbye!

Which brings me to my next point. I only have TWO more weeks until I return home, 14 days. It seems so surreal that after living in a country for 10 months, learning it's customs and it's language, that I just have to leave it and go back to how everything was before. I am actually more nervous to return home than I was coming to Italy in the first place.

Seeing as how a picture is worth a thousand words I decided to put all the events I missed writing about into the pictures below!
