Allison's Journey to Italy

Current Location

Milan, Italy

While I'm in Italy, I want to encourage other small-town kids to see the world!  Travel is a big part of my life, and I hope sharing my journey abroad will inspire your next adventure!


Konichiwa from the other end of the earth! I traveled to Tokyo and Kofu, Japan to be the Bacon Queen for their first-ever Bacon Festival. Japanese culture has been so fun to learn about!


You may have heard that America is a "young country". After seeing art painted before Columbus even discovered America, I would agree! But there is a little more to the story than that.

Field Notes

In Milan, scout groups connect kids to nature when they're surrounded by cityscapes. These small groups help build confident kids and a community of outdoor enthusiasts!


When my study abroad program offered free tickets to a concert in the famous La Scala theater, I jumped at the chance! The classical concert was a grand experience to check off my Milan Bucket List.
