Favorite travel experience

My favorite travel experience was a trip I took to Italy right after I graduated from high school. It was my first international travel experience aside from a few trips to visit family in Canada.


I went with a group of friends, and we explored famous attractions and delicious cuisine in Rome, Venice, and Florence.


Exploring each destination helped me grow more confident and curious, and established a deeper appreciation for travel and experiencing other cultures.
