Ciao! I’m Liz, a junior senior  former student at Marist College in New York. This last Spring 2012 semester I have been was blessed with the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy with some good friends at an Italian international institute. I‘m was fulfilling the core Liberal Arts credits required by my college in the best learning environment ever–while immersed in the curriculum/culture itself:

  • Literature — Reading memoirs, diaries and novellas of great Italian writers
  • History — Studying the social world of Renaissance Italy
  • Architecture/Fine Arts — Observing and sketching the built environment of Florence and its history
  • Italian language — Learning Italian while living amongst Italians
  • Italian cooking — …Need I say more?

I originally kept this travel blog for three purposes: 1) Update family & friends, 2) document memories, and 3) share experiences. Now that I’ve returned to the US, I would like to upkeep this blog from time to time for three new purposes:

  1. Help myself transition back
  2. Share the wonderful memories, photos and insight
  3. Relate the knowledge I’ve acquired; Integrate the life lessons I’ve learned

Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy my travel blog!

      Wow, thank you! (I actually wasn’t familiar with it until you mentioned it — Sounds like a very nice notion in the world of blogging 😛 …I’ll get that post up when I can). And as always, I’m so glad you enjoy reading about my adventures! 🙂
