12 Things I’ve Learned After 12 Weeks Abroad 05/09/17

Well, it’s hard to believe that my CIMBA adventure is over. But after 9 countries, 25 cities, and 83 days, it’s only appropriate to reflect on the biggest takeaways from the best time of my life. 1.)

Comparing Cultures Across Europe! 04/05/17

Since moving to Italy about 70 days ago, I have immersed myself into a totally new culture. And not one that’s somewhat similar to the United States. I mean, don’t get me wrong, there are similarities between the two but when looking at the cultures as a whole, they are very different. Living in Italy […]
