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 […]

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 […]

10 Lessons Learned Studying Abroad in Italy 04/01/15

Here I am, ten weeks into the semester of a lifetime. Ten long, action packed weeks. It’s crazy to think that am only three weeks away from heading back to the states, and I can already tell my departure from CIMBA is going to be extremely bittersweet to say the least. I will be thrilled […]

Adrenaline Rush 03/06/15

“The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast and you miss all that you are traveling for.” —Louis L’Amour These wise words were engrained in my mind as I persevered to the peak of Mount Grappa. Early Saturday morning, my global economics professor kindly offered to drive me to the base of Mount Grappa. I […]

Over spring break, I will see 4 different countries in 10 days. I will visit Budapest (Hungary), Vienna (Austria), Munich (Germany) and Prague (Czech Republic). I’m stoked! On Friday […]

Home is where the heart is. 12/31/14

As myself and a few other CIMBians made our last trip of the semester to the Venice Marco Polo Airport together, it felt like any other weekend adventure. I didn’t truly grasp that I wouldn’t be arriving back on campus in Paderno del Grappa anytime soon until I was going through customs back in the […]

The Island of Malta 03/12/14

Adventures off the beaten path are often the most rewarding.  On our last travel weekend, my friends and I decided to go to Sicily and Malta.  I was really excited to go to Sicily because Dr. Al (the Director of CIMBA who is also my Law professor) has been telling my class great things about […]

5 things I learned while studying abroad 12/03/13

After three months of living in Italy and traveling around Europe, I have become accustomed to a new lifestyle. Through my experiences I have been able to see that normal only exists in our own mind because everywhere in the world is different. These differences I have found to be beautiful, frustrating, and teaching. 1. […]
