Joined 3 years ago from Rome, Italy
Bellingham’s a suburban town, with a funky, hippy vibe, in the top left corner of the US (right next to Canada), and unbeknownst to me, one of the top retirement destinations in the US. This town had been everything I knew until I decided to pick up and leave its 32 square mile border that encapsulated me. It was probably a combination of the same gray, dreary weather day in and day out (yes, Bellingham is the least sunny city in the U.S. #1. How I survived there is still a mystery to this day), and seeing the same 80,885 residents' faces that lead me to pick up the day after I graduated.
I was ready to meet the other seven billion people that inhabit the world outside of Bellingham's confinement. I finally reached the age of “adulthood” and wanted a taste of absolutely unrefined freedom, and to truly explore the world with no limitations. And that's exactly what I did.
During my travels, I got only a sliver of insight into the world and discovered there are people and cultures far different than that of the typical "Bellinghamster". My journey is not over, and my wanderlust is only piqued at new heights, which is why I am now focusing on combining the lessons I have learned abroad and in other cities within the US to launch an e-business and obtain an education in Italy at Tor Vergata in International Business Management.
