Vino Rosso o Vino Bianco? 11/19/12

Wine is a big part of the Italian culture, as most people know, but I had no clue how in depth the wine world really is. Fortunately, I got to experience this firsthand with two activities I did this past week—a vineyard tour and a wine seminar. Last Sunday a group of us visited local […]

A Night of Vino e Formaggio! 11/15/12

CIMBA does a great job at providing us with several different cultural activities throughout the semester. One that all the students thoroughly enjoy is the “Date with a Professor Night”, where we can all spend an evening with a professor making pasta at a local restaurant or go to a cheese tasting at their apartments. […]

A Week in Food 11/12/12

One of the best parts by far about traveling through Europe is getting to taste different types of food—especially because little Paderno del Grappa has no variety in food. One of the top five reasons I love travel weeks is because we get to eat something other than pasta and red sauce. For my second […]

A True Italian Experience 10/26/12

Salve! So this week I got to do something really neat, which was to go eat with an Italian family. I’m not going to lie, I was a little nervous but I had another CIMBA student Tanner by my side. We were assigned to go with this kid named Mattia and all we were told […]

46 Days Later 10/25/12

“What is your favorite CIMBA memory?” the piece of paper said. A slideshow of photos of us played in the background, a sentimental tune to go along with it. You would have thought it was the end of the program, but in reality it’s a little more than halfway through. Hard to believe, but only […]

Venice, A Maze of a City! 10/24/12

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. Before we could touch any ingredients, the pizzeria owner and pizza-making master walked us […]

Why Live On The Edge When You Can Jump Off It? 10/18/12

Salve ! This past week was one of the craziest of my life! We had ten whole days to travel anywhere our hearts desired in Europe and my friends and I headed off to the French Riviera, Paris, and Interlaken. Now, I loved seeing the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre in Paris, but my favorite […]
