Amanda Knox's murder case extradition still looms over her but "Foxy Knoxy" seems bent on making the most of her time as she enjoyed spring in her hometown with a photosafari. Her ex boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, meanwhile, brought along his new love to the Perugia Villa where Meredith Kercher was killed.

The photos were posted on Amanda Knox's personal blog on April 6, which shows that the convicted killer has a penchant for flowers, landscape and architecture.

One such photo is the contrast between the beauty of the budding flowers of the trees and the juvenile penitentiary, which could also be a statement particularly with the Amanda Knox's murder case conviction.

Meanwhile, her ex Raffaele Sollecito took his new love, Greta Menegaldo, back to the house where it all began, when Meredith Kercher was killed inside the flat she shared with Amanda Knox, according to La Nazione newspaper.

The Supreme Court upheld the Amanda Knox's murder conviction and sentenced the UW student to 28 and ½ years in prison while Raffaele Sollecito received a 25-year sentence.

Raffaele Sollecito's father told the newspaper that there was nothing wrong with his son and girlfriend going back to the murder scene, especially since he has "absolutely nothing to do with that crime."

"If Raffaele wanted to show his girlfriend the ordeal he went through, I can't see anything wrong with that," the newspaper quoted the father as saying.

"Foxy Knoxy" earlier told a local news in Oregon that the whole Amanda Knox retrial has created so much vitriol against her, not just in Italy but in the U.S. as well. She also said that she almost didn't come to the conference because she didn't know what to expect.

Amanda Knox told KGW: "I'm learning a lot and I'm really excited to be here. I didn't know what to expect, but I'm blown away by the kindness."

"I was obviously very nervous to come down here," she added. "It's such a vulnerable thing to have experienced and then to expose yourself."
