Traveling pushes you out of your comfort zone. Florence was a great example of that. We were able to experience the quietness of Sweden and Switzerland. We felt the full force of a culture shift in Italy, especially Florence. The city was bustling with tourists, the streets were filled with vendors, and the buildings were grandiose in their architecture. It was definitely a shock to us as we are very low-key travelers. We prefer the road less traveled. Although it was overwhelming, it made us grow. That is what makes traveling so great! You grow so much from your experiences.
