european discovery.

When I first decided to go away for university, the thought of having my “own place” to decorate and make my own was inspiring. I remember printing millions of pictures of my high school friends and pinterest-ing tons of ideas of how I was going to make my new space a home. I printed quotes and stock photos and adorned every square inch of my room (no exaggeration) in some sort of memento that I thought represented me and my life. Over the years and after moving from res into a student house, many of the decorations got lost, lessened in importance or began to tatter. The one photo that remained (despite the torn edges) was a stock photo of the Eiffel Tower that I hung above my bed in res in first year and recently took down as I moved back home four years later.

I always felt some sort of connection to the Eiffel Tower and a persistent pull towards Europe in general. Partly because my roots are Italian, but also partly because of the mystique and appeal of being in a place with so much culture and history. After 4 years of starring at the same photo and dreaming of lamp lit streets in Paris, gondola rides in Venice and castles in Germany, I decided to book a plane ticket as a gift to myself for graduating and just GO. Honestly, there’s nothing more eye-opening than flying miles away and realizing how tiny we are in the grand scheme of the world. So, the next few weeks I will be travelling Europe with my best friend. I have absolutely no idea what to expect but I can’t wait for the adventure, delicious food, culture and stories that this journey will bring me. I hope to document as much of it as I can on here. Au Revoir loves! 😉
