My parents gave me the travel bug when I was a baby. They took me with them on their world explorations from Guam to China, US, Europe, New Zealand, and more.
I started traveling on my own at 19 when I studied abroad in Spain. I absolutely fell in love with Europe. I'm crazy about traveling by train, Italian coffee, and French pastries. I lived in Tuscany for 2 years, Micronesia for 1 year, Brazil for 1 year, and now I'm trying to pop in to visit new countries a couple of times a year.
I started teaching English in Brazil when I was 23. It is such a rewarding career that has lead me to many different countries. I've been teaching ESL for 10 years now and I absolutely love it. My students are amazing and I adore learning about other cultures and languages.
As a multi-passionate entrepreneur, I am a also writer and an Italian trip planner at Go Italianissimo where I help beautiful people like you plan and book trips to Italy, as well as personally lead small group trips to Italy. I am so passionate about helping people experience Italy authentically.
This blog is dedicated to improving your English, travel, and inspiration. I believe staying motivated and positive is key to being the best version of yourself. I personally need that inspiration every single day because I want to live my life to the fullest EVERY DAY!
