Tapping my toes with much anticipation as the bus pulled up on a cobblestone road was far from my expectations of this quaint but lively town. A sense of calm swept through my body walking the streets of Urbino for the first time, I was home. Professors passed small shops and restaurants waving hello to familiar faces as we made our way through the streets of Urbino and cultivated an atmosphere where my fellow classmates and I could thrive. Since being here, I am not just another tourist, but instead a part of the community, immersing myself into new culture, relationships, and learning opportunities. Just like the professors, I walk the streets of Urbino waving hello and being recognized as part of the town. I am grateful to able to study abroad and want to thank my mentors, translators, and professors for challenging me to step out of my comfort zone and open my eyes to new walks of life. Urbino, you are one of kind, and I hope to be back!
