A Farewell to Rome

It’s hard to believe that 4 months have gone by so quick, and in less than 24 hours I’ll be boarding a plane back to the USA. Yes, I’m excited for proper iced coffee and the hugs of familiar friends and family, but I’m also sad to be leaving a place that has come to mean so much. This trip …

It’s crazy to think this cool place might not be here anymore some day, so I’m glad I got to see it in my lifetime! This place is truly unique for a lot of different reasons.

Florence Winds and Wanderings

Don’t get me wrong, I love love LOVE Rome, but Florence might be a new favorite! This past weekend I went and visited the smaller city and stayed with some friends who are studying there (aka the infamous Maggie Manning who can be found on her fabulous Instagram). We took a short hike up to an overlook of the city after getting …

Trendy Meets Italy: The Time I Got sick My First Day Abroad…

Upon first arrival in Italy, the most frustrating thing to happen while traveling happened. I got sick. I didn’t see it coming in the slightest, but that didn’t stop me from waking up the first morning with an overwhelming nauseous feeling in my body and not even an appetite for some crackers. Right when I had gotten so close to …
