Ciao tutti, I’ve decided that among the infinite things that I love about Sicilia, I think that the amazing tan that I have from being at the beach is at the top of the list. I LOVE a good tan (fake or real), but a real, deep, Italian tan is the best. Even though I’m […]Read More Sun & Sand
Ciao tutti, One of the goals that I set before coming to Sicilia was to shadow my host mother or father in their career so that I could experience an international business situation. Today, I achieved that goal! My host mother had to meet with the overarching agency that she coordinates with to rent villas, […]Read More Strictly Business (Or Not)

I had trouble falling asleep last night because I was so full! Once I did fall asleep, I had a strange night. I remember hearing ringing and buzzing noises in […]Read More Abby vs Bugs: The Trilogy

Ciao tutti, The title of this post is a question that I ask myself at least five times a day.
