Taking a trip to an unknown city and an unknown country is great; but to travel is more than that, it's the opportunity to learn, meet new people... and that's exactly what we did.
What We Learned
- Familiar language but true: one has to say Ciao for both hello and goodbye!
- You really need to have a cave full of water because it's the price of gold.
- Be careful, this does not work for airports: even small 50cl bottles will not do. You don't have to tell Eva and Quentin that, they speak from experience.
- One has to be careful in restaurants; like in the USA, waiters will cost you extra. This is unlike anything you would see in France. It does not cost much but you do have to pay attention.
- Unlike the French, Italians do not wait until the people on the bus have gotten off to get on it.
- It is dangerous to walk in Italy, cars are ruthless.
- Scusi becomes your favourite word in Italy.
- The Galleria dell'Accademia is much smaller than one would expect, but the Galleria degli Uffizi is on the contrary much bigger.
The people we met
The three of us cannot express how much fun it was to discover the city with these four. They are incredible, and we encourage you to check out their projects (only Florine and Izia's are online).
