Nicole P - Rome - Fall 16

Hello everyone! My name is Nicole Pexa and I will be taking over SAI’s Instagram account today to show you what a #dayinthelife looks like in Rome! I am a senior Mathematics major and Computer Science minor from Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota, but am currently studying at John Cabot University in Rome. I officially graduate in a couple of weeks and I am so happy that I spent the last 3 months in Italy before I enter the “adult” world. The photo above was taken at the Trevi Fountain in early September after I had gotten sunburned at the beach 😎. I love being able to walk around the city and stumble upon treasures like this! #ROMEingaround #studyabroad

I definitely needed a pick-me-up on this brisk December morning, and what a better way to do that than drinking cappuccinos with friends! The coffee in Italy is SO delicious and pairs perfectly with a croissant (especially one filled with Nutella 😋). Drinking coffee in Italy is different than drinking coffee in the States for 2 reasons: you never take your coffee to-go and you usually drink your coffee while standing at the counter you ordered from. The first time I walked into a bar (which is what they call their coffee shops) I was so confused about what to do, but after 3 months I’m a real pro. 👊🏼 Shoutout to @youjustgotbernd and @phoebebillings for joining me this morning!! #dayinthelife #studyabroad#coffeebreak #blessed

Fall is in full swing here in Rome! This is one of my favorite views in the city and it’s only a 2 minute walk from my campus! I’ve walked A LOT since coming to Rome. Since arriving here in August I have walked just about 585 miles! At least I’m burning off all that pizza, pasta, and gelato 😉 #dayinthelife  #studyabroad#vatican #fallinrome

Enjoying an aperitivo to celebrate classes being over! An aperitivo includes a drink and an appetizer and is usually enjoyed before dinner (but honestly it’s enough food to cover dinner time). This specific aperitivo includes 9 small samples of all of their appetizers, my favorite being the mini lasagna. Definitely going to miss this when I go back home! #dayinthelife#studyabroad #aperitivo

I’m ending the night with some classic Italian gelato! I’ve always wanted to try this gelato place and I finally did tonight (thanks for the suggestion @katethoma ☺️). Tonight my flavors were chocolate chip and hazelnut dipped in dark chocolate. Thank you all for following me today! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Please message me if you have any questions, or follow me on Instagram (@pexappeal) if you want to see more pictures! Ciao ragazzi!
