About Me

Hello and Thank You for stopping by!

My name is Gina, and I’m the voice behind The Florence Diaries.

Weee Italy!!

I first visited Italy in the summer of 2008 as part of a study abroad program based in Florence and in typical American girl fashion, fell in love with more than just the art and scenery. Francesco and I began a very long-distance love affair after a whirlwind month of dating and after all these years of trying to understand the Italian way of doing things, I’d have to say that things are going pretty well  for us (we’re getting married next year).

This blog was started in an attempt to document all of the hilarious things that happen when you live abroad, and has slowly evolved into a personal space where I can make sense out of this crazy adventure I started 10 years ago.

I hope you enjoy looking around and if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to drop me a line at theflorencediaries@gmail.com

Ciao for now…

    1. Oh there are about a million different roadblocks on the way to getting a visa! The best advice I can give you is if you really want it, be PATIENT and do your research. Counting on the Italian government or its employees to actually know what documents you need is about as useful as a third ass. Good luck!
