Is it just me or is this year flying by? Sometimes it feels like moments that shouldn’t be forgotten are gone in the blink of an eye while others drag on for eternity (cue 26 hour flight from New Zealand to Dublin, woof!) Very profound statement, I know. Some days I can hardly believe Christmas [...]

What if I were to tell you a place existed both untouched by time or tourists? In Italy, nonetheless. What if I were to tell you I’ve discovered the most curious, unique and hauntingly beautiful city in Italy? What if I were to tell you it is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in [...]
How small of a world do we live in? After years of traveling anywhere and everywhere, I’ve realized six degrees of separation is more fact than fiction, and at this point, I shouldn’t be surprised anymore by coincidences with strangers. Living in a digital age has enabled us to better connect more than ever, and [...]
Everyone dreams about Tuscany, right? Or is it just me? While I’ve spent a lot of time traveling around Italy over the years, I always put off visiting Tuscany. Once I even canceled a trip there. Why? Because for me, and what I suspect for a lot of you, Tuscany represents the ultimate Italian experience. [...]
At the risk of sounding like a massive tool, I am going to start off this post with one of my favorite quotes about Italy, you know, because there are so many to chose from. “A man who has not been in Italy, is always conscious of an inferiority, from his not having seen what [...]
No matter how many times I travel to Italy, it continues to surprise me. Before people (Americans) travel to Italy, I feel like they have a very limited idea of what’s in store for them. Pizza, pasta, tall, dark and handsome Italian men in Armani riding vespas around leaning towers and Roman forums. You get [...]
For the past two months I’ve been hip-hopping around Europe by train with my Eurail pass, in a new city every day or two. Usually I am so tired I can’t even remember my own name when I go to bed at night, not to mention my back is so sore from hauling around my [...]
What happens in Italy, stays in Italy, right? NOPE! Not on this blog! What kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t share the crazy moments along with the all rest? I’ve shared the best hate comments with you guys and even my most embarrassing moment. I don’t know about you guys, but do you ever [...]
For those of you new to Young Adventuress, Photo Friday is a weekly series I run where I feature a photo and a short story from a trip I did before I had this blog! For me it’s a great way to go back and relive and share wonderful travel memories before I entered the [...]
Nothing makes me happier than when the leaves begin to change. Shades of gold, red, orange and yellow blanket the ground, crunching under my feet as I would rush off to class in university in Massachusetts or hiking around my parent’s home in Virginia. Without a doubt, autumn is my favorite season. I love fall, [...]
While writing yesterday’s post, the 5 Most Beautiful Places I’ve Been…So Far, I had a blast going through hundreds of old photos saved on my external hardrive from trips I did years ago. I’ve been to Italy many times, but one of my favorite places there has to be Positano. South of Naples on the [...]
“What’s the most beautiful place you have ever been?” I get asked this question so often, and the answer never gets any easier! How can I pick just one? I am on a constant quest of looking for the most beautiful, little-known places around the world. I see a picture of a place and I [...]
Who is Young Adventuress?
Hi, I'm Liz, and I got my first taste for traveling and Spain when I was 16 years old. On my own, 9 years and 30 something countries later, my wanderlust has only grown and the list of countries I want to visit longer. I've been living in Spain for the past few years but now I am about to embark on a new journey across the globe. Follow my adventures as I wander, eat, and photograph my way around the world
