While you’re reading this I’m in route to Italy! I couldn’t be more excited and I’m still in shock that this day is here. We will be visiting multiple cities such as Rome, Florence, Naples, Venice, Pompeii, and the Amalfi Coast! I can promise you I am going to be blowing up Instagram in the next few weeks so this is your fair warning.
I’m probably most excited that I got my suitcase to zip (even if I did have to sit on it to close it). My professor preferred that we bring bags that fit the carry-on limit since we will be traveling through Italy so much. When they first told us, I think my jaw hit the ground. 18 days in a carry on…..this is an over-packer’s nightmare. But as of about 15 minutes ago: I ZIPPED IT. I DID IT.
So make sure you’re following on Instagram and Twitter for constant updates and even more updates on Snapchat (user: Shannon.hessen).
Another piece of news….
I was always planning on flying home with the rest of the group at the end of May, however about a month ago this all changed.
I got an internship in Paris!!!!!!!!!!!
So now instead of going home, I will be going straight to Paris from Italy and I will be spending June and July in Paris. So on top of packing for a month in Italy, I had to also pack for 2 months in Paris.
I’m so excited to start this summer adventure in Europe and hope that you will follow along with me! I’m so thankful to have this opportunity and I can’t wait to see all the memories I make this summer.
Hope you have a summer filled with adventure!
