The Path Less Traveled (By My Home University) 01/27/16

Ciao from Italy! It’s been a little over a week in beautiful Paderno Del Grappa and I feel as though I’m slowly but surely getting the hang of things! For my first blog post here, I thought I would talk about something that has had a major impact on my study abroad experience so far—choosing […]

We went as a group to the nearby town of Bassano to enjoy some shopping and food!

An Adventurer’s Guide to the Dolomite Mountains: Hiking Mount Grappa 12/09/15

It was cold day in November and there was a heavy fog surrounding the mountain. Lauren Anderson and I decided that this would be the day that we would finally conquer the mountain we had been staring at for the past two months. We didn’t have any transportation set up so Dr. Al, the director […]

An Adventurer’s Guide to the Dolomite Mountains: Paragliding from Mount Grappa 11/02/15

It was October 15th, 2015 – the day of my 20th birthday. This is the day I was scheduled to paraglide over Mount Grappa. I decided every birthday from here on out should be a memorable one. The company who took us up in the air was easy to reach and he even gave us […]

Embracing My Inner Tourist 10/15/15

“Is there such a thing as a traveler’s high?” is a question that popped out of my mouth as we were wandering around Florence last weekend. While the more technical term may be “wanderlust” (definition: a strong longing for or impulse toward wandering), I know for certain that there is a rush of adrenaline that comes along with […]

What to Expect Traveling Solo and Why it is Something Everyone Should Do 09/14/15

A month in Europe, with nothing but what you carry, will definitely test someone on the kind of person they are. I’m not going to lie, I had my ‘oops’ moments and my “I NEED to go home” moments, but looking back, the month of travel really changed me. To start off, I learned that […]

5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Study Abroad 07/06/15

My time abroad has come to an end and I am back safely in the United States. I haven’t quite made it home yet due to delayed/missed/re-routed/cancelled flights so as I write this I am lying on the floor of the Philadelphia airport hoping that the storm occurring outside doesn’t prolong my 24-hours -and counting-0f […]

When in Rome 06/02/15

Ciao! Whether you are in Italy, another country, or even at home, “when in Rome” can be a good philosophy to live by. Experience the world around you. Live it, love it, and try it. Embrace your old routine of actions, but don’t be afraid to try something new. “When in Rome” pushes you to […]

Ode to CIMBA 04/20/15

I’m incredibly lucky. I’ve seen more of the world at 21 years old than some people will see their entire lives.  I climbed 463 stairs to the top of the Duomo to overlook the red-brick rooftops of Florence. I walked the streets of the Gothic Quarters in Barcelona. I paddleboated in the lake of Buen […]
