I’m Natalie:

A college student from the city of Pittsburgh, desperately consumed by wanderlust.

My whole life I have thirsted for travel.  This inspiration began with the countless tales spun by my mother of adventures backpacking across Europe.  While I’m not quite at this point in my life, it’s on my bucket list.  In the mean time, I’ll satisfy my wanderlust with a semester abroad.

For as long as I can remember, I have plotted and planned my dream of studying abroad.  The moment is finally here to hop on a plane, fly across the Atlantic, and touch down in Europe.  For the next four months, I’m calling Firenze home.

Get lost with me as I document my adventures; join me as I explore the Italian culture, discover the hidden treasures of Florence, indulge in local delicacies, and develop friendships of a lifetime.
