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 [...]

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 [...]
In January of 2008, I was backpacking my way around Europe for 2 months. Italy was at the top of my list to visit, especially Venice. I stayed for several days in this beautiful city, soaking it all in, hopping around all the sights. I really loved Venice, though in some ways it made me [...]
I spent my last day in Italy discovering the quaint little town of Bergamo, east of Milan. Unlike the rest of the week, it was cloudy and chilly, so I had to bundle up for the day. Bergamo is home to one of the smaller Milan airports, so many people just pass through on their [...]
While hanging out in the northern Italian paradise town of Como, I met up with some friends for the day and we decided to rent a car and explore the surrounding lakes. It was a beautiful, clear, warm day, perfect for traveling around and taking in the fake-looking landscape. Also, driving in Europe? A whole [...]
“You may have the universe if I may have Italy.” Guiseppe Verdi So on my second day in Como, Italy, I decided I needed a break from the little ritzy lake town, and I hopped on a ferry in search of another ritzy lake town. I ended up in Bellagio, yes folks, the fancy Italian [...]
After two days in Milan, enough was enough and I needed to get out of that stinky, polluted deathtrap of a city. So I headed up north to the famous Lago di Como for a few days. Nestled at the foot of the Alps next to Switzerland, apparently Como is a pretty big vacation destination [...]
So in early December I had a week off from work (love Spanish holidays), so I packed up my bags and headed out to Italy, what what!! I found a super cheap flight to Milan, and since I hadn’t been to that part of the country, I figured I would check it out. Now, I [...]
Hi everyone! I feel like I have been so late with posting things on here! I have been inundated with work and things to do that I have very little time for writing. I have a bunch of new blogging projects coming up which I am super excited about and can’t wait to share on [...]
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
