Rachel and Melissa visit Italy!

Last weekend was the weekend we had all been waiting for, Venice Carnevale and our good friends studying in Barcelona, Rachel and Melissa, were coming to visit!! We heard the amazing things about Carnevale; the wine fountain, chocolate deserts, huge parades! Unfortunately, it turned out that the day we decide to go to the famous carnevale festival, hurricane Venezia decided to roll through…

Other than the interesting weather we were able to make the most of our trip with the girls. We had to take them to all of our favorite restaraunts in Florence, which meant a weekend full of eating and lots of wine as usual.

Our favorite place being piazza Michelangelo, with the best views of Florence, was our second stop, after purchasing two bottles of wine and prosecco of course.
