How to Maximize your Time at CIMBA 06/20/17

Managing time: Now managing time might seem like something easy but when you are abroad in another country it’s a lot different than being at home. One big difference is that when you arrive in Italy there is a large time difference, 6 hours for me and 7 hours for many others. When arriving on […]

Some friends and me hiking in Boulder before the snow came!
The flatirons or "flatties" snow dusted on a foggy day. I sure am going to miss this view.

How to Adjust to the Italian Way of Life 10/03/16

Ciao, If I was truly adjusted to the Italian way of life, this third week’s post would be up being posted during week five. The Italians have a very different way of viewing time and sense of urgency than Americans. You’re in for a treat, because it’s story time: A friend and I took a trip to […]
