"Upon my graduation from college, I, like so many others before me, had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do or where I wanted to be. Not wanting to make a commitment to your bland 9-5 schedule yet, I decided to take the road less traveled and go experience Italy for a bit. Best decision I have ever made. Period. Florence is gorgeous, the people are wonderful, the food is amazing, and the internship looks fantastic on my resume. I love being able to say that I worked for an Italian magazine. How cool is that? I will admit, six months seemed a bit extended at the outset, but when it came time to go home I had no idea where those months went. What can I say? Time flies when you're having fun."
