Milan

For some reason Milan has never really been a place I wanted to go but it was on the way from Lugano to Budapest so I thought a quick stop here would be helpful in not moving around a lot. The main site in Milan aside from the fashion and shopping is the Cathedral. When…

Naples and Pompeii

I have been fascinated by Pompeii or rather the destruction of it since I can remember. I was already in Rome, and Naples is just an hour train ride away and the perfect jumping point to go see Pompeii. I was told to stay away from Naples because it was dangerous and dirty and not…

I went to Rome and only saw one thing…The Yellow

The Yellow is a hostel that I worked at for 6 weeks last year where I met a ton of people. Some people I randomly saw again and others I made a point to meet up with again and then there were those I just never got to know. But there was a specific group of people…

My 6 weeks at The Yellow

For 6 weeks I had the opportunity to volunteer at The Yellow Hostel in Rome through goeco.org. I didn’t know what to expect and absolutely had no idea what I was getting myself into! I started following The Yellow on Facebook and Instagram to try to get an idea of what the hostel and the…

The Vatican

Vatican City. The Vatican. The Sistine Chapel. The amount of history and amazing art stored away in this little city is absolutely insane! I went a bit crazy with the pictures, but it has been a while since I was in a museum on this trip and we all know how much I love my art!…

I went to the beach…in Rome

One of the best parts about Rome, is that you can walk around the city and find good food almost anywhere. We went for a little stroll and stumbled upon Taverna Barberini. Any time I see a Trip Advisor symbol on a door, I can usually assume the food will be pretty decent. We ordered…

A quick overnight to Florence

Part of the awesomeness of working in Rome, is the ability to jump on a train for a quick overnight trip to Florence. My coworker and I had a day off together and jumped on the 6:03am train to explore Florence. We went with no expectations and had an absolutely amazing time. We checked into Eurostudent…

Another normal night in Rome

Working while traveling makes for a completely different travel experience. For the next 6 weeks, I will be volunteering at The Yellow for 35 hours a week. In return, I receive breakfast, lunch, dinner, a bed and laundry. I found this all through Go Eco which has some amazing opportunities. I haven’t done much exploring around…

A Roman holiday

When in Rome do as the Romans do. This means go to dinner at 10:00pm and go to sleep around 2:00am. This part of my trip is also a bit different as I am volunteering at a hostel in exchange for breakfast, lunch, dinner, room and laundry for 6 weeks. I have taken the last…
