I have less than a week till I depart for Italy for my Maymester study abroad. I cannot be more excited about this adventure of a lifetime. I can not want to emerge my self in the Italian culture, try new foods, and learn about wine!! As I am overwhelmed with excitement for my journey I am also feeling a sense of nervousness about traveling by my self. This will be a great learning experience for me and I cannot wait to see what Italy has to offer!
