Living here in Waterford has been really nice. The city is filled with nice people, and by nice I mean really nice! Everyone has been so welcoming and willing to help Britt and I with anything. It feels great to be in a place that provides you with a positive vibe based off your encounters with people. Not only have the people nice, but to my surprise the weather has been very pleasing—what better environment is there than one with great people and great weather to go along with it?! Based off of what I was told about the weather I thought it would be cold and raining everyday, but for the most part it has been very sunny and mild, with a few rain showers and rainy days here and there.

                         Such great weather has really motived Brittney and I to explore the city of Waterford, and in particular the Waterford City Center. The City Center is filled with a variety of shops, boutiques, and places to eat. But my all time favorite store has been Penny’s! You can practically go there to buy any and everything you need, from clothes to beauty products, all the way to housing essentials. Penney’s has very fashionable clothes at ridiculously affordable price, which are two of my favorite things when shopping—fashionable clothes and great deals. To be honest, I think it will be safe to say that I may accumulate a completely new wardrobe while living out here.

                         Spending time walking around the city center shopping and admiring its beauty sure can work up an appetite, and what better way to top off a nice day in the city than with dessert—more specifically, gelato? We came across Gino’s Gelato, and were instantly drawn in by their tantalizing display of gelato flavors accompanied by strobe lights and music. I decided to it was best to go big or go home, and ordered a waffle with two scoops of vanilla and caramel gelato, with a dusting of cinnamon sugar. It was hands down, one of the best deserts I have had in a while! With access to the city center and the great shopping and food it has to offer, I can definitely see my self settling into Waterford really well. I look forward to seeing what else the city center has to offer!
