Hi there. I guess this is a question for anyone who has successfully traveled, worked, and lived internationally. A little bit about my circumstances... Just a little bit of back ground on me.... I am 26 years old and have been in the industry for almost 8 years. I recently began advancing in my career by getting a sous chef position at a reputable resort in Laguna Beach . I appreciate the position but can not deny that I desire very strongly to travel. I am hoping that you might have some suggestions??? I am unhappy with the work I am producing. Now I am never one to not work somewhere for less then a year but I am over it. I have heard many amazing stories about other chef's travels and I am interested in traveling to Italy and am trying to pursue my culinary education while doing so. I have sent out a few emails to restaurants and chefs but have not had much luck with responses. Has anyone just took off to Italy for 6 months and winged it, or should I have a plan and set up a internship before I go. Any ideas or experiences would help. Thanks for taking the time to read this and hope to get some answers!! Have a wonderful day!
