Living in a Home Stay - A Glimpse into my Magical Reality - ANNA FREUNDL

Allow me to introduce you to my bella Florentine home stay.

My hope is that these photos give you a glance into my unique experience with an Italian mother, dog, and nourishing home away from home.

Unintentional Theme: “Light”

A radiant beam that so kindly greeted me home from school.

And then there’s Pepe, always greeting me…. although he usually only wants a food handout.

The kitchen/dining room area.

The bathroom door sign that I’ve always simply liked.

A neighbor preparing for the wonderful, sunny, flowery spring ahead. A photo I took outside of my window.

This mural in our living room was painted by a Japanese student who, Daniela (my host mom), hosted a few years ago. My assumption is that this was a token of her immense gratitude for Daniela. If only I was a brilliant artist.

I took this photo at about 5am when the sun was about to take the moon’s spot in the sky. It was the first thing I saw when I spontaneously woke up after a long night of midterm studying.

An atypical Tuscan countryside view, always a glance away from any and every window.

We eat a lot of Nutella in this household. It’s a sweet life.

And then of course, the woman who has left a significant mark on my heart, soul, pant size, life, TUTTI (everything)!

The part hidden with my sleeve might be the most important word- “Be the Light” Thank you, CEA, for allowing me to truly embody a girl of her word through your flawless housing assignment to me. A pleasant reminder stamped on my wrist forever!
