Cindy BigrasCindy Bigras: For the Love of Travel

One of the things we notice most about Cindy Bigras' stories is her love for the destinations and her love of travel.

While she serves as GoNOMAD's expert on all things Italian, she shows the same enthusiasm for Sweden or Austria or Virginia, or wherever else she decides to go.

Cindy grew up in Vermont and received a B.S. from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

She studied and worked in Florence, Italy, for three years. It was there that her love for all things Italian was born. She returns there as often as possible, and keeps her language skills sharp by watching Italian television daily.

Cindy is a stickler for detail and helps keep the stories on GoNOMAD free of errors and typos.
