Picture of Valentine Baldassari

Valentine Baldassari

Valentine Baldassari was born in Chambéry, France but caught the travel bug at a very young age, when she moved to Michigan with her family. Since then, she’s hitchiked through Lithuania, crossed Europe by train, worked in the wine industry in Bordeaux, lived in Ukraine and Latvia on her own, and studied in the United Kingdom, where she is currently reading Philosophy and Russian at the University of Oxford. When not using all of the above as an icebreaker at parties, she likes French and Russian literature, feminism, wine-tasting, and looking at pictures of puppies.
