Becoming Italian

I searched and searched until I found my Italian relatives. I found love and a home in a country like I never expected.

In the spring 2016 I studied abroad in Italy during my Junior year of University. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. Having such an amazing experience like I did, it inspired me to return for the summer of 2017 after I graduated and then live abroad for the entire year to teach English. 

I discovered a lot about myself and a lot about the Italian people as well as their culture. Something I naively thought I knew a lot about by being raised italian-american. With every day that passes, I wish to return to the land that made me feel so at home. I hope you enjoy my tips and photographs that I acquired from this beautiful country. Are you traveling here soon? Click below!
