When I decided to study abroad, I had a few goals. These related to creativity, academics and personal growth. Specifically:
Elba, Italy, is a beautiful island with yummy seafood, lovely clear water beaches, and many other hidden treasures. Fun fact: Napoleon Bonaparte was imprisoned here.
The big tower in the center of the city (that you can see in this photo) is called Torre del Mangia and it's located in Piazza del Campo (the main square of the city where the famous Palio takes place every year during July and August).
