I will forever cherish this experience and the new friendships I made along the way. Thank you parents for making this trip possible for me.
And thank you followers for following me :) Although my trip sadly came to an end, I will still continue to keep posting on this blog of my daily travels. I still have so many photos to upload of just this trip!
The ideal woman of Paris is well put together. She is classic, chic, and polished. She is conservative; layers up, not showing too much skin. She has a natural look; she doesn’t fuss with her hair and wears subtle makeup. She is effortless. In Paris you become more conscious of what you are wearing.
In Florence, I found it was harder to spot out Florentine women. Maybe because there were so many tourists? I can definitely say that the Florentine woman is less conservative. Their look is more casual, laid-back. They are more daring and wear bold color or prints. I felt more comfortable picking out my outfits in Florence then in Paris.
Paris culture is much different then Italy’s. Everyone in Paris is more to themselves and not many can speak English. I never experienced a Parisian being cold or unfriendly towards me but Italians make you feel more welcomed in their country.
I personally prefer the Italian food over the French food. (Maybe because I am Italian? haha) The French food is very heavy and a lot of it is made with cream or cheese. Their baguettes and the croissants are delicious!! I had some great food in Paris, however, being there for two weeks, you can get tired of the food. I felt that almost every restaurant I went to there, they all had basically the same food on their menus. Luckily, the city has many varieties of international foods. In Italy there is a wide variety of food to choose from, which I loved. The service in restaurants is much slower in Europe, which can be a bit annoying to an American. Everything in Europe is so laid back. Not everything is rushed, which is difficult for most Americans to adjust to because we do not know how to stop and relax.
