I live for unexpected experiences and good food! As a cultural-enthusiast and linguaphile, my studies and passions have taken me around the world. I teach English as a foreign language and I believe that language is beyond powerful.
You mean, I can still have CHEESECAKE?!
I'll be the first to admit that I have such a sweet tooth. Desserts are my demise. They are the reason why I gained a LOT of weight when I studied abroad in France and Italy.

And a lot of the time I was underprepared.

She surely did enjoy its glory as she walked down the cool streets of her new town.
