Please excuse this quick interruption of my Narni posts! I wanted to share a couple of photos with you from the last few months.
As I’ve mentioned, the trip was incredibly special for me, and I came home with a group of lovely new friends. Since we’re all from a mix of three different states, it was really hard saying goodbye at the airport as we didn’t know how often we’d see each other.
Since arriving back home at the end of July, we have had one reunion per month. We meet up in New York City and hang out for the day, catching up on our lives and eating gelato, trying so hard to relive the two weeks we spent together in Italy.
The reunions have truly been a highlight of my year. I love all of my friends, and it is a joy to see them and to catch up. This trip was such a wonderful time in my life, and their presence will always remind me of it.
Each month I have anxiously awaited for our next reunion, and I can barely focus at school the day before I leave for the city. Today, I wanted to share some photos of the city I have taken. I feel so lucky that I’ve been able to visit one of my most favorite places more frequently over the last few months. Every time I go, I get more and more eager to live there…someday!
Besides seeing my friends, frequenting the city has made me so much better at navigation, specifically regarding the subway. Last week, I successfully got us to each location and made no mistakes. It is incredibly empowering… almost as empowering as when you swipe your MetroCard and get through the turnstile in one shot! 🙂
Anyway, here are a couple of photos.
In the midst of senior year stress, it has been a treat to visit the city every couple of weeks. It’s always a breath of fresh air (well, not *literally* fresh air), and I always leave feeling so inspired. I can’t wait for our next reunion which will, hopefully, be soon!
I feel so lucky to have made such intelligent, kind, and loving friends who are willing to travel a little out of the way to get together. These mini day trips have meant the world to me; I know they may not last forever as our lives get increasingly busier, but I treasure them while they’re still here.
I’ll be back soon with my next post from Italy. I’m determined to finish the series by the end of November!
Have a great night.
PS. Wow. After four years of blogging, I just figured out how to do captions on photos. I apologize for the lack of captions in all of my other posts! This is so much better and easier, and I’m very excited to use them from now.
