As part of our MYrago profiles, we sit down with some of our locals to find out the most unique things about their country, what they think every traveler should be aware of and what is that one thing that makes them call their city home! This is our way of giving our readers and fellow travelers an insight into the daily lives of locals and also prepare them as they get ready to explore the unknown!
We sat down with Uliana who is a Mosaic artist based out of Rome, Italy. She is our local MYrago ambassador and has awesome experiences like: Create a Mosaic of Yourself, Make Jewelry from Hand-Blown tiles and Be an Eclectic Mosaic Maker for a Day

The first leg of the trip was not exactly ideal as we basically flew down the autostrada until we reached Florence. For those of you experienced on a motorcycle, highways are not fun- all your effort goes into keeping your head from whipping side-to-side in the wind, so much so that your neck starts killing you after the first fifteen minutes. You can barely look at your surroundings because the slightest deviation of your helmet from parallel to the acceleration of the bike results in bad news bears. Our first stop was for lunch on the Strada del Chianti. We devoured a panino made on the spot with fresh bread and freshly-cut mortadella with pistachios (my favourite), cruised a little more, and then took this shot that you see above, distinctly Tuscany wouldn't you say?
