I went to Interlaken, Switzerland all the way back on the weekend of February 20. It seems like such a long time ago now. However, it was and still continues to be one of my favorite weekends abroad. Getting to ski the Alps while I was abroad was at the top of my list to … Continue reading Follow the Neon Poles
I know took about a month long hiatus from writing this thing but I'm going to really try to catch up. Half of the reason I decided to write a blog was to be able to look back and see what all I did in my few months abroad. This is really going to test … Continue reading I’m Alive, I Promise
Since it is one of the most romantic countries in the world, Italy of course loves Valentine's Day. Being thousands of miles away from the people you love didn't make Valentine's Day the most welcomed holiday but we still celebrated with Italy.

I thought the next time I would post would be after my trip tomorrow to Pisa. However, our culture field trip this morning was really cool and I took a lot of pictures so I figured I would share now. I mastered all of my kindergarten level Italian for my quiz in 30 minutes so … Continue reading Another Morning Field Trip
Last night, as a part of our culture class, we had a wine tasting. It was in the central market right beside our house. It was cool getting to go inside the glass walls and participate in a class we had passed by so many times. And yes I mean so many, we have been … Continue reading Culture 101
I'm going to convince myself that is a yes. As you can imagine the food here is amazing. Thanks mom for fixing vegetables every day I was home because they are MIA in my current diet.
