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 [...]
Who is Young Adventuress?
I'm Liz, and I got my first taste for traveling and Spain when I was 16 years old. On my own, 8 years and 25 countries later, my wanderlust has only grown and the list of countries I want to visit longer. Nowadays I call Logroño, Spain my home, where I split my time between teaching English, writing and traveling. Follow my adventures as I wander, eat, and photograph my way around the world.
