There was never a time when I came to this roof top that my breath wasn't taken away.
While living in Florence, I made friends with the residence of this apartment who are also members on Airbnb! This roof top was the perfect place for brunch, the late night movie spot, the tanning deck that got sun hours and most of all the place I wanted to take my Dad first when he came to visit. He could have stood there for hours; I did.
This oasis allowed for me to take a moment, above the hustle and chaos on the streets below, to realize how much I need to always travel and how lucky I am to be able to do so. This view of the Duomo inspired me, allowed me to reflect, and made me come to terms with many realities of life. That is the definition of an oasis.
