“Live The Life You’ve Imagined.”

“Live The Life You’ve Imagined.”

You might know me, you might not, but the purpose of this blog is to allow you to keep up with me while I’m living in Pinerolo, Italy. I love to travel and this will be my first trip out of the country, so I am very excited. I am about to embark on the adventure of a life-time.

One of my favorite quotes from Henry David Thoreau’s Walden is

“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”

Living in Italy has been my dream and I’m finally making it come true. Not only living in Italy, but also in a valley next to The Alps (I love mountains). I first took French language classes in college because it seemed more practical than Italian. However, I wasn’t very good at writing or speaking in French. So after two semesters of French I started taking Italian classes. From the beginning level class I knew that I LOVED the Italian language far more than French.

There is just something really beautiful about the Italian language. Not only the language, but the country is beautiful. I have always been interested in traveling throughout Europe. This trip I plan on: becoming part of the Avondetto’s family (my host family), eating a lot of pasta, dancing, helping teens improve their English, drinking il vino, learning to cook Italian style, talking with my hands, drinking lots of the best coffee, enjoying the scenery, and enjoying every moment of this opportunity to explore a region with the finer things in life.
