My last night in Rome was spent with some of the most amazing people I know. We had our farewell dinner, our last night out and we stayed up all night drinking champagne and reminiscing on our time spent in this beautiful country.
We all went on this trip for different reasons. Whether it was to try something new, step out of our comfort zones or simply explore a new place. We all had different ideas of what we might experience, how we might feel or who we would meet. But I think I can speak on behalf of everyone when I say, what we found was better than we could have ever imagined. Not only did we find this beautiful country, that we can now call home, but more importantly we found each other. We experienced highs and lows, and have created memories and bonds that nobody else will quite understand. If it wasn't for this month in Italy, I probably would have never known you all, and my life would have been forever different without all of you in it. I am so thankful that I was able to spend the best month of my life with some of the best people I know. I wouldn't have had it any other way. This trip will forever be a part of me. I love you guys.
If you guys are reading this, I couldn't be more thankful to get to know (and now love) each and every one of you. Special shout-outs to Michelle, Macarena and Kristen for being the absolute best (and favorite) roommates on the planet, to Robert for making pillow talk my favorite part of every day, to Kate for being the literal best, to Sydney for putting up with my saltiness and to Mak and James for keeping me laughing at all times.
