It was a thrilling yet overwhelming feeling when I first landed in Milan, a city unknown to me, seven months ago. I was eager to explore and experience the culture, but at the same time, I was struggling to understand the customs and traditions that were so different from my own. As the months passed by, I realized that I may never fully understand the Italian culture, but it’s the diversity and uniqueness that makes it so fascinating. Even though I was struggling to adjust at first, I have grown to appreciate the differences and learn from them.
But as time flew by, I realized that it was passing quickly. The thought of leaving this beautiful country and returning home makes me anxious. There are still so many places I want to visit and experiences I want to have. If I had the power to stop time, I would do it in a heartbeat, because I am not ready to leave just yet.
