Living Without Regrets; Learning Without Borders


Gelato…I have made it into my daily reward.

Whether I successfully talked to an Italian – in Italian or it’s just a gloomy rainy day – I’ll find any reason to reward myself with delicious gelato. Every time I approach the counter one of two things occurs. Either I will have the combination of two flavors strategically planned in my head or I hesitate for about ten minutes attempting to formulate the perfect gelato combo. When ordering gelato, I usually get the smallest size which allows up to two different flavors. Since, I am obsessed with chocolate I immediately add that into the equation. Some of my favorite combinations consist of the chocolate covered strawberry (cioccolato and fragola) and “Nutella” (cioccolato and nocciola).

For more information on Gelato, I found a great article on the different flavors:

About Amanda

Ever since I was little, I ventured all over my back yard and into the woods and around the mountains of Roanoke, Virginia dreaming of traveling. Now, I prepare to travel to Italy for a semester gaining a whole new perspective. As a junior studying Information Systems at The University of Toledo, I am excited to return in January to share my experiences and encourage others to study abroad. Many memories will be made, but none will be regretted. Many exciting people will be met from toe of Italy to the mountain tops of Norway. Boarders will be crossed.
