Whenever I’m away on vacation as a treat for myself I buy something that is strictly available within the region I’m traveling. While I was in Siena and walking up and down Via Banchi di Spora, I kept smelling this wonderful scent every time I walked by this mysteriously calm looking store named Acqua Dell’Elba. After awhile I realized that they spray a scent out on to the street and it smelled like clean fresh breeze and ocean. I couldn’t help but close my eyes and think of walking on a warm sandy beach.
For the past 12 years, I have been day dreaming and talking about one of my most favourite life experiences. The experience that probably planted a travel bug in me and made me tell every single university student to do the same. 12 years ago I decided to join a student exchange program and study Tuscan architecture in Siena, Italy. I had the most amazing time and met the most awesome friends because of that decision. Fast forward 12 years…… I’M BACK!!! For 2 days, but I’m back!
