Ashley's Backpacking through Europe

$115 of $750 goal

Raised by 3 people in 64 months
The first time I lived outside the country was my junior year of college when I lived in Karagwe, Tanzania. As a result, I fell in love with learning about new cultures and being a global citizen! I am about to embark on a new journey in my life, graduation on May 1st and starting my full-time job with General Mills in July.

Before I move to Minneapolis for work, I'm  going to travel the historic continent of Europe for the entire month of May. I have been learning Italian in preparation for my in-depth visit to the beautiful country

I plan to visit 4 countries:

Nice, France (2-3 days)
Pisa, Italy  (3-4 days)
Florence, Italy  (3-4 days)
Rome, Italy  (3-4 days)
Naples, Italy  (3-4 days)
Venice, Italy  (3-4 days)
Milan, Italy  (3-4 days)
Auschwitz, Poland (2 days) [Holocaust tour]
London, UK (4 days)

I am asking for $750  from my friends, family, and supporters to help pay for my hostels and transportation costs. Any little bit counts and is appreciated!

Following my trip, I plan to post videos and blog tips on how to enjoy Italy on a budget (food, vespa traveling, cooking classes, wine tasting tours, etc.)

I appreciate your time and words can't express how much your donation means to me!
