Ciao Italy! A Semester in Rome

Dominick Cura
January 10, 2020

My semester in Rome is rapidly approaching and I couldn’t be more excited. I'm going to be studying film and Italian culture as well as hopefully interning in Rome. I can't wait to see all that I am going to learn as a student and as a visitor in Rome. I'm so curious to see what it will be like living in Rome for several months. It will be very interesting having a completely new home, with the normal school routine, but in a completely different school setting.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to the amazing Italian food, but of course that's not all. Check out my first video to see some of my predeparture feelings and the rest of what I'm looking forward to in the next few months. Follow along with me throughout the semester as I share videos and photos (on Instagram @daringtoexplore) from my experiences exploring Rome, Italy and the surrounding area.

Before I know it, I will be hopping on a plane to Italy, so I should probably start packing soon but knowing myself I'll leave it until the last minute.  Keep an eye out for my next post from Rome, Italy!

<p>I've always been fascinated by adventure. It started with hiking in the mountains as a kid, and my wanderlust only grew when I decided to take a gap year after high school to backpack Europe and Asia. I learned so many incredible lessons that I would not have gotten by just staying at home.<br><br>Aside from adventures I am also extremely passionate about storytelling through videos and photos. As a film student, I'm learning to share my own experiences through film and make other people connect to the stories I tell.</p>
