My experience here in Urbino was nothing short of exciting. This journey and its memories will stay with me forever. Before coming, I told my mom how crazy it was, to be traveling halfway around the world, not knowing anybody. Coming to a small town I had never heard of until I read a school email. I wouldn’t have thought I’d end up here, speaking messy Italian, drinking vodka-lemons, and meeting a whirlwind of new friends from home and abroad. But here I am, writing about something so interesting, taking photos of wonderful people and places, it feels like a dream sometimes. This opportunity wouldn’t have been possible without the helpful faculty who arranged it all, my amazing parents, and the friends I made along the way. So I’d just like to say thank you all!
