5 Things I wish I Knew Before I Packed/While Getting Ready 06/22/17

After a few weeks of studying abroad with CIMBA, I have some advice for future student on what to pack and be prepared for. Everyone wears running shorts and large t-shirts to class.

How Studying Abroad Will Turn You From a Diva to a Minimalist 05/25/17

When I was first told that it wasn’t a good idea for me to bring more than one suitcase and my backpack abroad, I thought it would be impossible. But I nearly lost my mind when I realized that said suitcase could only be 50 pounds. However, after sifting, sorting, an all nighter, and a […]

Arrivederci Italy! 04/21/17

If I were to write down every thought I have had since being home, this post would be around 100 pages long. I have had a roller coaster of emotions going on. From happiness of seeing my family and getting to sleep in my own bed to sadness of leaving all the amazing friends behind […]

The final gourmet dinner!
It might look like I had done a lot of packing, but right behind me was a mountain of clothes that still needed to be stuffed into my suitcase.
