Becki’s Blog: La Tavola 2016

I can’t believe it has been nine years since I went to Italy with my parents; that was definitely the trip of a lifetime. We did a semi-independent tour of Italy where we visited three cities: Rome, Florence, and Venice over the course of a week and half. This was my first time ever leaving North America, and there’s no other place to go in Europe that’s better than Italy! I was mesmerized by the experience, from the food to the...
