The Next Step

I mentioned in my last post that, with the start of April, things are winding down incredibly quickly. To be honest, I’m surprised by how quickly the year has passed. We’re creeping up on the end of my contract, after which I will promptly head off to my WWOOFing weeks prior to my family’s arrival…

March ReCap: Paris and Rome

March just flew by, didn’t it! First thing’s first, gotta tell you about Paris. I finally took a trip, one that my friend Zach and I planned months in advance, and while Paris (still) isn’t my favorite city, it was great to see a friend from college that I haven’t met up with since July!!…

Catching Up. Again.

So, I could spend a little while apologizing for the lack of posting. I think the last time I posted here was sometime in November? Wow, that’s a long time. Alright, I am sorry for not getting anything out to you guys in that time. I have a couple of excuses—more like explanations—but I figure…

Now that I’ve been here for a little while, settled in and what not, I think it’s a good time to start tackling some of the approaching issues that might come up for any American abroad or even a short flight from home like Rachel, Katie, and I are. We’re accustomed to our holidays, but…

A Weekend in Vejano

Now that I’ve (somewhat) settled in here at Florence after landing in Italy, I think I can rustle up the spare time between unpacking, starting my new work, and grocery shopping to update you guys a bit on how my weekend spent in Vejano was! To give some background, as I didn’t just flounce off…
