I am such a PROcrastinator *facepalm* this post has been sitting in my draft for weeks, but I was just staring back at it. I will change the format of this post a bit…. Here we go XDD
Interviewer: Anyway, what went down in Florence?
Me: Nothing much
Interviewer: *raises eyebrow* nothing much?
Me: Ahemmm, I just spent 2hrs.
Interviewer: Then why are we holding this interview?
Interviewer: Could you visit any place in particular within the short time you were there?
Me: The first thing that struck me was how different Florence was in comparison to Venice. I was so used to seeing water all around and Water buses that it was somewhat weird to see tall and actual buildings lol. I sort of accomplished a lot in 2 hrs. Thanks to the map I got, it made moving around easier. I arrived at Piazza del Duomo, the number of tourists there was overwhelming!!!! No kidding. I found a ticket office, went in and got myself a pass to Giotto Bell’s Tower and the dome *looks for ticket* Crap! I don’t have it. I’m sure I could access 2 to 3 of the tourist attraction sites on Piazza del Duomo with the ticket. As soon as I saw the queue trying to get into both Giotto Bell’s Tower and the dome, I didn’t even bother myself anymore. I consoled myself by taking loads of pictures.
Interviewer: Oh really nice, so you just took pictures?
Me: Nah, nah, that would be a waste lah. I looked around I saw Opera Di Santa Maria Del Fiore, it’s located on Piazza del Duomo, not far away from Giotto’s Bell Tower.
Afterwards I took to walking, and on the way I saw the Church and Museum of Orsanmichele. From the second floor of C&MoO I was able to see the dome.
The church is not far from Piazza della Repubblica, so I was also able to pass through PdR. It was a huge quadrangle sort of. Since I was short on time I started back toward the train station.
Interviewer: Nice, really nice. A merry go-round?
Me: Yup, it was right in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica^_^
Interviewer: Did you see anything else that piqued your interest?
Me: I wanted to squeeze in Basilica of Santa Maria, since it was just opposite the main train station *sighs*
Interviewer: And what happened?
Me: I was denied entrance -_- I had this huge backpack and I couldn’t take it in, and the receptionist wouldn’t let me leave it with her. So I just turned back disappointed, I was pretty pissed though *pouts*
Interviewer: In conclusion, you did A LOT of power-walking and pictures taking.
Me: Well you could put it that way. I’m definitely going back to Florence and I’ll be spending at least 3 nights!!
Interviewer: We will be looking forward to that trip ^_^
Me: Thank you 🙂
The end of the interview 😀 The next post coming up is my trip in Rome ^_^
