I am very excited to have the opportunity to go to Italy this summer. I cannot wait to taste the food and see the countryside. The Art in Italy will give me a new appreciation of the finer works by Italian Artist. It is so exciting to have the chance to see the architecture, painting, sculptures and did I mention the food! Pasta, bread, gelato, cheese-I can hardly wait! I am also looking forwarded to getting to know the other students on this trip. We have already started bonding and I believe I will return home with some very good friendships. This trip will not only be a chance for me to learn about the Italian history and culture but a chance for me to grow personally. This is my first time away from my family for this long so I am a little nervous but I cannot wait to begin this adventure!
