Immediately after graduating college, I decided to skip the traditional 9-5 lifestyle in favor of traveling and working abroad, and to this day I consider choosing to live abroad after graduation to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

From August 2015-August 2016 I worked for a student travel company in Florence, Italy. During this time, I visited over 10 countries and over 20 cities…and got paid to do it!
