These past four weeks in Urbino, Italy have truly been eye-opening and full of incredible experiences. Not only have I become friends with my peers on the study abroad trip, but I have also developed relationships with some of the locals in the town through the process of writing my article, as well as just friendly Italian students and citizens of Urbino. I have come to love this quaint little town that always seems to have something going on. On our two three day weekends off when many students traveled to other parts of Italy, I found myself missing this place that has become a home away from home. Although, not every day was easy and relaxing during this program, I can say that the amount of work that I have put into it has been very rewarding. I am so grateful that I was able to have this experience, because I think this has been one of the best ways to fully immerse myself in the Italian culture.
