A little more than 10 years ago I decided to study abroad. I wanted and applied to study in Paris and my Dad told me NO! So I switched to study abroad in Florence. At that point in my life I didn’t have a choice and I am not complaining! My Dad likes to remind me that it all worked out in the end… I get to “study” abroad this year in Paris 😉
10 years ago almost exactly to the day I left for London and then off to Siena a small town in Tuscany. My school sent us here for 3 weeks intensive language in Italian before moving to Florence. In Siena there is a square in the middle of the town called Piazza del Campo. My friends and I climbed the many stairs to the top for the breathtaking view of the town. It is here where I fell in love with Italy… My passion for Italy grew over the next couple months as I traveled throughout the country from the North to the South. I made great friends that semester and I am so grateful for the opportunity.
It was after my semester abroad that I decided I wanted to do what I love (travel and take pictures) and find a way to make a living at it. 6 years almost exactly I opened my etsy shop. I would like to say the rest is history, but that would be way to easy! Its been a lot of hard work, sweat, and tears to get me where I am today. Looking forward to Paris in 2013 and THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!
