So, I figured I would be honest and tell you all.
I came to Italy to eat. To enjoy the flavor of food that has been made with the freshest ingredients. To sit at the dinner table dining for hours just dreaming in food. Haha. Okay. Okay. So, that's not entirely truthful, but never have I tasted food this delicious in my entire life and today is a perfect example of my wonderful food tasting experience.
For the first time since I arrived, I was able to sleep in and have the entire day to myself. I was my own personal travel agent as I took myself around Florence enjoying all the sights that I hadn't had a chance yet to see
Anyway, the view was simply gorgeous and easily the best scenery I have ever laid eyes on. (I included pictures, don't worry!) I seriously felt as if I was in the glass elevator with Mr. Wonka himself overlooking the city. The scenery was just so pretty. The red-topped roofs spread for miles and the mountains and hills surrounding the city were just mesmerizing. I am so glad I decided to do it.
Therefore, after climbing ALL of those stairs, I decided to reward myself by visiting the best gelateria in Florence. And it was PERFECT. It was like heaven in my mouth. So delicious. The best thing that has ever touched my tongue. Julia Child once said "fat gives things flavor!" And she couldn't have been more right. Therefore, I have decided to dedicate this entry to food.
