From Paderno to Paris: How Culture Shock Follows You Everywhere 06/13/16

The ever-so-familiar sound of Italian chatter swarms around me in the train station. After three weeks abroad, these conversations are simply backround noise. I used to be overwhelmed with confusion. I did not understand a word of what people were saying. I would sit in awe at how much I misunderstood. Now, my experiences are […]

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 […]

Cinque Terre: My Favorite Place in Italy 04/06/15

Every place I go somehow manages to become my new favorite. Ever since I first stumbled upon photos of colorful houses clinging to cliffs, I have dreamt of visiting the “five lands” of Cinque Terre. The five villages are precariously perched along the rocky coastline of Liguria, Italy. I’m over two months into my travels and I’ve […]

Time Flies When You’re at CIMBA 03/24/15

I spent this past weekend in Rovinj, Croatia. I was really excited to go to Croatia because I had heard great things from family and friends who have visited. We left campus after classes on Friday at 5:30 p.m. We took a bus to Rovinj and arrived very late, so we took it easy the […]

Between Point A and Point B 02/02/15

My study abroad experience has been the most rewarding experience of my entire life, but in many ways it’s also been the most stressful (somehow I think these two things are related). For the past couple of months at CIMBA, I’ve traveled to a new place every single weekend, which has been a dream come true, […]
