About Cassidy_S

My name is Cassidy, I live in Northern Italy with my husband and 2 kids. When I first arrived to Italy the only thing I was sure of was that I wanted to live in this country, a country that is not known for its organization but is more beautiful than you can imagine!

It’s not very often that I get a chance to ride my bike through the empty streets of Milan on a warm summer night.. A thousand words could never describe the beauty there is in this magnificent place..
