I have always loved to travel and soak up the culture of the places I visit. These past few weeks have been a crash course in the lifestyle of Le Marche, from beach trips to Pesaro to lounging around the piazza with a gelato. I never could have imagined all the things that I would learn about the magazine making process and feature writing both in and out of the classroom. All of the teachers and other students have been incredibly helpful in advancing my reporting and photography skills, as well as giving me a true news-room style experience. Although I won't pine for the walk up to the classroom after we leave, I will truly miss all of the friends and connections that I have made here.
