“My family lived in four cities, and travelled to Morocco and Turkey before I was ten. The love to explore the essence of lands and cultures was born in me. As Faculty Director of three study abroad programs for Florida International University, I have the unique opportunity to explore France, Italy, and Spain in depth. In addition, I have developed a notion of what tends to work for university students and what does not.”

A portion of the content of these pages is result of a collaboration with Corey Ryan and Stephanie Sepulveda.

Safety, banking, technology, visas, fashion, footwear, language, etcetera. This travel advice is primarily directed to students participating in my France, Italy, and Spain study abroad programs. They are intended to help twenty-somethings explore, seek adventure, and truly immerse themselves in a culture. The goals are to travel affordably, travel safely, and to live like a local.
