The Last Week!

This time next week, I will be in Chicago.

Correction: This time next week I will be at Bang Bang Pie in Chicago, let’s be honest. I want to land, take a shower, and have some pie in my vicinity within 48 hours. 

I can’t believe my time is almost up in Italy. It’s been an incredible experience, and I’ve met so many interesting people. I’ve had the chance to live with a beautiful family, travel with great friends, learn Italian, teach English, and eat my weight in pasta. I have zero complaints.

I’m going to make the most of my remaining days here, and who knows – maybe I’ll be back before I know it!

Here are a few photos from this weekend and last week:

Listening to great traditional music at a local restaurant. 


Say hello to the crazy monkeys I live with 🙂

    Hi Alexandra,

    My name is Courtney. I am a third grade teacher in VA, looking into the conversation coach program that you did for next summer. The head of the program directed me to your blog and I wasn’t sure how to contact you besides commenting on a post. Your blog was so great! Thanks for sharing all that you did 🙂 I wanted to know if there was any way I could get your email address so I could ask you a few questions about the program before I make my final decision whether or not this is a good fit for me! Please email me at when you get a chance. Thanks so much!


    • Hi Courtney! I can’t tell you how excited I am that you found my blog, and especially that you are interested in the conversation coach program! I am more than happy to talk to you about it and answer any questions you might have. It was the most wonderful experience, so I really enjoy sharing as much of it as I can with others. Thanks for getting in touch 🙂 I will email you soon!
