I love Italy. It was and remains to be a charming and picturesque place. Nothing shocked and awed me more in my travels than the feeling of being in this country.

Pack Your Bags Now and Go! My first international trip was with a group of my (all women) friends to Italy in 2012. That trip changed my life. I knew from then on that I had to see the world. What I didn’t realize after that trip is that it is really hard to get […]

Penelopê Who? No one talks about Penelopê. Remember back when we were “forced” (well not me) to read the Odyssey? She was the wife of Odysseus. You know, he was the amazing hero who fought in the Trojan War and went on an epic mythical journey to get back home. Don’t worry, I forgot her […]
