La Dolce Vita

After a semester abroad, you learn a lot about a new culture and yourself. For me, a big part of studying abroad is also trying to figure out where I would want to live and work in my career.

Less than a Month!

The countdown begins till it’s the end of the semester, and everyone flies home. Time has been flying by. It doesn’t feel like November is almost over, and this mostly has to do with this semester being so busy with school and travel.

Ciao da Roma!

After being here for 50 days I do not really have many complaints about Rome. Sure the dog that barks every morning starting at seven in the morning till noon or the lady above is who seems love practicing her tap dancing early in the morning can get annoying, but it is worth it. Luckily…

First Month in Rome

I have officially been in Rome for over a month. It has been such an incredible experience. We have our own flat in Monteverde. It is a little bit of a hike uphill to school, but sometimes packing into a public bus is worth it. Everything is very close or easily accessible. People are very…

  We have less than three left! The past week was pretty busy for me. I spent my thanksgiving in class and going to an American restaurant In Oviedo. It wasn’t quite turkey and mash potatoes, but I was okay with a chicken burrito and a chocolate milkshake. That weekend, I flew to Munich with…

Twincation

I was lucky enough to spend the last week visiting Brussels and Amsterdam with my twin. When I read about Brussels, I now know they are not kidding about your diet being waffles, fries, and chocolate. In the past week, I probably consumed about 7 waffles. Brussels had an abundance of chocolate shops that were…
