Hey there and welcome to Living and Loving Abroad, my new blog!


I’m Jess. I’m 25 and currently living and working in Florence, Italy with my girlfriend. I’ve been meaning to start a blog for a while documenting my experiences abroad and have recently decided to stop thinking about it and to actually start writing!

In this blog expect to find: tips and info on the best places to eat, drink and be merry in Florence; info on what it’s like moving to a foreign land; things I’ve discovered about both learning and teaching a new language; insight into a same sex relationship in a pretty Catholic country and many other tales of shenanigans my friends and I find ourselves getting into!

follow me, share me, read me…

Thanks for stopping by!
