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 […]

Florence, Firenze, My Favorite Italian City 12/05/14

I had been to Florence in 2009 with my family and I absolutely loved it. I remember running through the Piazza della Signoria on the way to grab a last minute charm for my charm bracelet. I remember posing for family pictures in front of Ponte Vecchio. I remember strolling through the San Lorenzo leather market […]

"Fourence" 10/08/14

Have you ever felt like you can’t be actually where you are? As if you’re dreaming and someone is going to wake you up? Well, welcome to Florence. It’s hard for me to believe the historical significance that this place has had on the world. Not to mention I was there. That’s the sort of […]

The Firenze Weekend that Almost Wasn't 06/03/14

The best part of my weekend in Florence was that it actually took place. A day and a half before the travel weekend officially began, I was still scrambling to find out how to get there and where I was going to stay. If anyone ever tells you that it is fun to wing it […]

Two Adventures, One Weekend 05/31/14

So this past weekend, which was short (unfortunately) (but still awesome), my friends from my engineering class and I (11 of us total) decided to take a trip to Florence! When we arrived, we put our stuff away at the hostel because we were lucky/large enough to fill a room, so that we could lock […]

Florence has awakened me! 05/28/14

Scrambling throughout my dorm, I quickly throw some clothes in a bag and ran out the door (packing is not my strong suit). I made it just in time to catch the bus to the train station. I could feel my energy level rise as I realized it was my first independent travel weekend. After […]

Florence, Italy 02/04/14

Last weekend we all went on a bus to Florence, which is only about a 3-hour drive from Paderno. We got there at about 9pm on Friday and dropped our bags at our hostel, which was right next to the Duomo. Florence was a lot livelier at night than Venice was. We walked around the […]

Bassano, Florence, and more! 01/28/14

The first few weeks here at CIMBA have been both relaxing and busy. There have been many days where I have been exhausted from all the things we were doing, but other days where I feel like I have a lot of time to myself. The first weekend here, we took a bus to Bassano […]
