The Sun Will Come Out, Tomorrow! 04/02/12

It never rains in Barcelona… until it does! We just had our second travel week, which means that we got 10 full days off of school to explore Europe.  Along with two friends, I spent days planning out every last detail of my trip.  We had it all figured out; we were starting in Paris, […]

Add a Seat to the Table 03/19/12

Last night, I had one of the best experiences I’ve had with CIMBA thus far – and that’s saying a lot.  I was fortunate enough to participate in a program called Add a Seat to the Table, which pairs CIMBA students with the families of local Italian high schoolers to share a meal, whether at […]

It’s Thursday and you just booked your trip to Ljubljana, Slovenia and you couldn’t be more excited! Everything is perfect until you realize one little thing, you know nothing about Ljubljana.

Just a Normal Sunday… Climbing a Mountain 03/06/12

“So, what’d you do this weekend?” Oh, not much.  Just climbed a mountain. Yes, that’s right.  I climbed a mountain last weekend.  And not just any mountain – Paderno’s own Mt.
