AbstractA collection of three short stories under the same title, "Somewhere I Have Never Travelled" blends together fiction and non-fiction travel writing. Each story takes one young college student studying abroad in Italy for the summer as its first-person subjective narrator. One character longs for connection, another grieves a death, while another wrestles with the guilt of betraying a loved one. Torn between their homes and the adventure they want to have (and sometimes torn between conflicting desires within themselves), each narrator makes their way through the events of a single night. They encounter one another and interact, giving their views on one another, other visiting American students, persons of different nationalities that they meet, and Italy itself. Within that night, these characters struggle to make meaning out of their lives, and what it means to them to be in Italy.
