I lived in Northern Italy for a season and was able to travel around the country, as well as parts of Sardinia and Southern Spain. The Italian way of life was the best breathe of fresh air I’ve had the privilege to take in.
Slow dinners with close friends, beach cruiser bike rides to work, country drives through small villages to the sea; so many memories I treasured for myself instead of documenting with a screen in front of me. The fastest part of life is the quick shot of espresso at the local bar.
My decision to live in Italy as a young adult has added so much richness, knowledge and so many beautiful memories to my life. There is nothing like traveling. I went to Europe alone, but the friends and family I made along the way never made me feel that way.
