In ten days (yes, you read that right, TEN DAYS), I will be embarking upon my first international adventure. I will be studying in Arezzo and Rome with PLC for two weeks, backpacking with some friends for about a week and a half (to places including Switzerland, France, the U.K., the Netherlands, and Sweden), and finally landing in Malta for about a month to be part of an anthropology field school. I know this is going to be one of the craziest adventures of my life, and I’m having a hard time wrapping my mind around it. It seems like there are still so many things I need to figure out in the next ten days, and on top of that I have to take my finals. However, I do think that everything is going to work out, and once I get to Europe, I will know that the hard work I have put into the trip is worth it.


(p.s. if anyone has good tips for packing for two months abroad, hit me up)
