I’d like to live somewhere green and warm that’s not too far from a beach or city. I’m not sure if that means one of the US coasts or somewhere in Europe- I guess I have to travel more and find out!
The first phrase I learned in Italian was “posso accarezzare il tuo cane?” and it’s served me well because the dogs here are beautiful.
My parents had to travel a lot in Europe before they settled in America, so I wanted to experience living in Europe myself.
I’ve had a lot of gelato in Italy in my quest to find the best gelateria. Right now, my favorite is Fatamorgana because it has the most unique flavors and combinations, and never disappoints.
The first week we were abroad, there was a free opportunity to attend an ensemble from the Human Rights Band at the Casa del Jazz. I went there not knowing what to expect and the different kinds of music and instruments were incredible! Plus there was a cocktail afterparty with tasty aperitivos.
The weekly site visits for the History of Art in Rome are amazing because they allow me to see appreciate the works as they are meant to be seen, as well as go to places I wouldn’t have known about otherwise. Also, having late classes is great because it allows me to sleep in and have a shifted schedule since dinner is later in Italy.
I’m hoping that studying abroad in Italy will help me meet more friends, interact with people from different backgrounds, and better understand a different culture.
Bring good walking shoes, and view everything as an opportunity to explore Italy and a different culture.
