This Thanksgiving I'm Thankful for CIMBA! 11/21/12

This Thanksgiving I’m very, very grateful for the CIMBA study abroad program and all of the magnificent opportunities it has offered me throughout the entire semester. I have grown so much as a person in just these few short months being abroad in Italy. I’ve had the opportunity to meet people from all over Europe […]

A Great Ball of Fire 11/19/12

Salve! Sunday, I attended my first European futbol match. I figured with only two weeks left, it was something that definitely needed to be checked off my cultural to-do list. I have never been a huge soccer fan, so I was definitely there to focus on experiencing the culture of the game. The game was […]

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 […]

My Cup of Tea! 11/06/12

This past week was our second travel break, and I had the pleasure to travel to the British Isles for the entire week with one of my friends. We started off visiting friends in London, then ventured north to Edinburgh and ended in the lively city of Dublin. It was nice to be in an […]

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.
