I studied abroad in Italy in 2007 and 2009, in Perugia and Ferrara respectively. In 2010 I took myself on a celebratory graduation trip for one month, meeting up with a dear friend and then travelling alone in the South for two weeks. Italy remains one of my favourite places to visit, and I still find myself pulling an Italiana and gesticulating wildly from time to time.
I don’t have much writing from this period in my life, but I have included a couple of pieces from my old blog Trovarmi in Italia (To Find Myself in Italy). I blame the lack of internet four years ago. I feel like I should post my tesine from my classes to prove I was, in fact, once fluent in Italian, but we’ll see.
