“You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him discover it in himself.” – Galileo Galilei


With 3 weeks until classes start, I was able to finalize my schedule in Italy! Every class is taken on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays.

- Tradition of Italian Food, 9:00 am – 11:30 am

- Italian Language, 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm

- The Art of Italian Family Business, 3:00 pm –  5:30 pm


Over the next 3 months, I will take on 5 different countries, cultures, and languages.   I will submerse myself into the different lifestyles by speaking as little English as possible, eating the local delicacies, and wearing the same style clothing as them. Easy, right?

My main goals for the trip are:

  1. See Casalduni, the town in Italy where my family is from
  2. Be able to understand Italian by the time I leave
  3. Find a vintage clothing/antique store in every country (sorry mom!)
  4. Don’t gain more than 5 pounds, this by far will be the hardest.
  5. Take this journey for what it is – a life changing experience. Explore, Learn, Experience daily.
