I’ve always loved the idea of travel, but have never had the confidence to go for it on my own. With most of my friends at University and I myself working, it was always hard to find the right time, or the right person to travel with. But a short while ago a golden opportunity was presented to me. Some family friends are getting married in Milan next September and so, with the help of my family, I can begin my overseas traveling adventure. To begin with I will be seeking out some of the areas Jane Austen writes about in her novels (she is one of my favourite authors) in England and then heading on over to Italy to retrace the steps of my Nonno and Nonna. I would love for you to join me on my little adventure and we will see were it will take us!

In the meantime, I will be blogging about my 2015 trip to New Zealand and reviewing books that I have read/am reading to get in some blogging practice and such!

In my spare time I run several social media sites dedicated to Jane Austen, @all_things_austen on Instagram, All Things Austen on Facebook, @allthingsausten on Twitter and @all-things-austen on tumblr.
