This past weekend, a few of my friends and I decided to finally venture into the city of Venice. This was our first experience wandering through the city, despite the fact that we only live a mere hour away! We had heard nothing but great things about Venice and all the historical sites to see.

Playing with Prosciutto: Italian Pizza-Making 10/22/12

Earlier this week I participated in my first “Date with a Professor,” one of CIMBA’s many activities. Fifteen students, two professors and their wives and I had the opportunity to make our very own Italian-style pizzas at a pizzeria in Asolo.

A Chocoholic's Dream Come True 10/17/12

This past week, we had our first week of independent travel. I had the opportunity to travel to the South of France, Paris, and Interlaken, Switzerland. By far, my favorite place we visited was Interlaken. It’s situated between two picturesque lakes with snow-capped mountains surrounding it. Not only is it one of the most beautiful […]

Rain Rain Go Away 10/04/12

Salve! This weekend I adventured off to Verona and I wouldn’t say that I had the best of luck when it came to this trip.  Saturday morning, we woke up in this charming little bed & breakfast that we were staying at, called B&B Villa dei Pini, and were greeted by a plate of homemade […]

An Italian Home Sweet Home 10/04/12

Study abroad students, which are generally broke college kids, are notorious for traveling Europe by jumping from hostel to hostel. Before coming to Europe, I was given many pointers from past student travelers warning me about the many horrors of hostel-hopping. Staying in a hostel will forever be a skeptical experience because there’s always the […]

30 Hours, 5 Villages, 1 Amazing Weekend 09/28/12

This past weekend was our first travel weekend here at CIMBA, so naturally a large group of us planned our first trip to Firenze, or Florence in the Italian region of Tuscany. I had been to Florence once before, but it was interesting to see how much my perspective of the city changed the second time. […]

Salve! The title of this post is a quote from Robert Frost’s poem The Road Not Taken and this idea definitely applied to my weekend.
