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 […]

A Weekend of Adventure 03/04/15

This weekend, I decided to stay back at campus and have a more laid-back weekend since next weekend begins our 10-day long travel break- “spring break”. 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 […]

España! 02/18/15

This past weekend was our first “travel weekend”, meaning CIMBA gave us Monday and Tuesday off from school to have an extended weekend to travel. We left campus Friday around 5 p.m. and went to the Venice airport. We flew to Barcelona. Our plane was slightly delayed  so we arrived in Barcelona late that night. […]

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, […]

(Un)Knowingly Loving It 12/16/14

As I finalized the paperwork that would send me to Italy, what I did know is that I would absolutely love traveling around Europe and experiencing the many different cultures that this experience has to offer me. What I didn’t know is that I would make some of the best friends and that I would […]

Oktoberfest in Munich! 11/20/14

Ciao! For the third weekend in CIMBA, I decided to leave Italy and go to another country! This was not because I was tired of being in Italy already but because this weekend was the last weekend of Oktoberfest (A grand beer festival) in Munich, Germany! This was quite improvised by my friend, Andy, but […]

Taking it easy in Verona! 11/05/14

This past weekend was all about relaxation. My travel buddies and I decided that we wanted to stray away from the busy weekend routine we have all become so accustomed to. This routine follows one basic rule… you’re always catching some form of transportation, whether it’s a plane, train, or automobile. See what I did there? […]

Roma! 06/11/14

The Eternal City is one of the most accurate nicknames for Rome that I could think of. There are (and were) way too many things to fit into a 3-day weekend, but rest assured, we tried our best. Now, I’m going to spare you all the gritty, sweaty details (it was like 90 degrees all […]

Another Unexpected Detour 06/05/14

Can I just begin with the fact that my mind is exploding at the fact that this trip is already over halfway over? I honestly can’t (and really don’t want to) believe it. There are just so many things to do and places to see and people to meet still! I just feel like I’m […]
