An Ode to the Small Towns 10/23/17

           Ciao tutti! This past weekend, several Cimbians and I took a break from travelling and stayed local in Paderno. It was a much needed break from the rush of seeing a new place, and we had a blast exploring all the area has to offer. It made me particularly appreciative […]

First Travel Weekend! 10/23/17

So much happened in such a quick four-day travel weekend that I don’t even know where to begin. Although there were some bumps in the road, overall, it was a success!

Take It Slow, Take It In 10/23/17

        When I decided to study abroad, I could not help but think about all the countries I would explore during my time in Italy. I would be in Europe for three months, so why not try to see as many places as I possibly could, right?         Well, […]

Within the summer program, students are given 2 long weekends and 1 short weekend to go and travel wherever we would like. In doing this, it is sometimes hard to decide where you want to go, who to go with, and how to get there. One thing that we struggled with for our first weekend […]

7 Weekend Traveling Protips 05/30/17

During my first couple weeks at CIMBA, I have already learned a few things about traveling and have some advice for you: 1. Plan and book as early as possible. It will be cheaper, and there will be more available space at nicer/more convenient trains/planes/buses and hostels/Airbnb’s/hotels. Also, print your ticket early! 2. Pack the […]

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 […]

Why Studying Abroad is Good for You 05/15/17

As college students, we sure engage in a lot of behavior that is less than ideal for our still developing minds and bodies.
