As 2017 is coming to an end, I reflected on my year and honestly, I am glad to be moving on. I realized nothing will ever beat my 2016 when I lived abroad. It taught me everything that I know I will never learn if I never took that leap. If circumstances allow it and I was given the chance to move abroad again, I wouldn’t hesitate to go.

I often get this question from my friends and family about what it’s like to live in Milan. I suppose it’s a natural conversation topic since, living abroad in Milan is not the first place that comes to mind when people want to move abroad. So, what is it like to live in Milan? Continue reading “What It’s Like to Live In Milan. The truth.”
A year gone and I still can’t believe it. I still remembered when I was talking to my friend about moving to Europe and then, it happened. I moved. Here I am now reflecting on my experiences. Hands-down, it’s been one of the best years of my life. Continue reading “A one of a kind year, my 2016.”
This last year and 3 months abroad has been a very satisfying and life fulfilment time for me. Leaving Europe is very difficult especially when you are leaving friends behind and they ask “When do you come back?” Continue reading “And That’s How the Cookie Crumbles.”
A few months ago V and I had one of our many conversations on the train while en route to yet, another destination. That day, we talked a lot about places we wanted to see before we left Europe and we both agreed on Geneva as one of the cities to see. Fast forward a few months later, well, little did we know a trip to Geneva would become a reality and more importantly, it would be our last European trip together. Continue reading “Twinkling Lights in Geneva, Switzerland.”
Our final exam ended, Italy is on a long holiday and the sun was out. What a perfect time to explore a new city with my travel partner V. Around mid-afternoon today, V and I hopped on a train and made it in Lecco an hour and a half later. It was absolutely a beautiful day. Even though Lecco is a small town, I enjoyed the view of the lake and simply spending the day here. Nothing more and nothing less. Continue reading “A Golden Hour in Lecco.”

Known as a musical destination, Cremona hit all the right notes. My friends and I embarked our way for the day here celebrating the end of our semester. As it turns out, the town was having their annual Fiesta Del Torrone. The streets were lined with markets selling various sumptuous nougats and musical performances with a stage set up in the middle of the square. There were youngters singing and dancing to songs from popular shows like Grease or Dirty Dancing. It was hard not to get into the groove of it all. Continue reading “Playing with my fingertips on a string in Cremona.”

Alas! We are here at the end of the year. My, how the year has passed by so quickly (at least for me it did). I remembered last year when moving to Milan was just an idea then, it turned to a reality. Now, I am sitting here reflecting and blown away of how this experience has really shaped me in so many ways. For now, I’m not ready to say good-bye just yet to 2016 because I still have a lot of things to do while I am here. As of today, I want to consider what lies ahead for 2017. Some of these wishes may or may not happen for 2017 but, these are a few things that I want to happen.
