Ciao! I'm Molly and I'm currently a junior at the University of Colorado Boulder. This semester, I decided to try something new and study abroad in Perugia, Italy! I am so excited to embark on this new adventure and see what Italy has to offer. I will also be traveling throughout Europe so I hope that you'll join me on this journey! On my blog, I will share my successes, my failures, and lessons learned along the way. I'll share with you both the excitement and struggles of adjusting to a new country, cultural comparisons, and more. Expect to see a lot of food pictures and beautiful views! I am so incredibly grateful for this amazing opportunity and can't wait to share it with you!
