I’m Rachel. Since 2008, I’ve been having a love affair with Italy that has taken me on a whirlwind journey across the country.
I’m currently working on a “digital diary” + vlog this summer. In the meantime, feel free to browse through the stories in my blog! I try to bring you closer to Italy by writing about the people I meet, the food I eat, and what goes on behind the scenes when living here. I take you on a tour of Italy the way I see it – full of emotions, reflections, and lots of eating. Other than a dreamer and a romantic, I am a diehard foodie!
I was born and raised in San Diego, California before I moved to Rome, and then eventually Milan. I’ve spent the past decade pursuing the famed dolce vita, and discovering it’s not exactly what I thought, which has created both a maddening and fascinating experience.
I can often be found around town enjoying a pistachio gelato and scribbling in my notebook.
