• The start of Fall break: Mykonos, Greece

    October 24, 2016

      The travel distance between Florence and Greece really isn’t that bad, but Brittany and I made it a little harder on ourselves. We traveled from Florence to Rome by train. Then from the Rome train station had to take another train to the airport. We were going to take a bus to the airport…

    September 29, 2016

    Oktoberfest!  What a time, what a time.  There were ups and downs of the weekend, but if I had to tell someone whether to go, I would say for sure go.  I traveled to Munich through a student lead organization called Euro Adventures, and I loved them.  I would totally recommend them, and I am…

  • Day Trip Guide: Cinque Terre

    September 19, 2016

    Cinque Terre!! Finally, the day has come when I made it to Cinque Terre.  I went in with absolutely no expectations.  I am glad I didn’t know what to expect because it made the scenery that much more beautiful.  There were moments I looked around where I almost wanted to cry from the beauty. Getting…

  • Day trip Guide: Viareggio

    September 11, 2016

    On Saturday, my friends and I decided to conquer the Firenze S.M. Novella Train Station (Santa Maria), which is the central train station in Florence.  It was a bit intimidating to go there because we were told to be on high alert for pickpockets.  We left early with plenty of time to get ourselves from…

  • One Week of Classes Down

    September 10, 2016

       SYLLABUS WEEK!  That is usually something that everyone will get extremely excited for, at U of I. In Florence, it isn’t a thing here.  Most of my classes are over two hours long because they only meet once a week.  The teacher covered the syllabus in about 20 minutes and then we moved right…

  • My Freshman Dorm

    August 15, 2016

    Decorating a freshman dorm can be daunting but my roommate and I had so much fun with it!  It is funny to look back at my room and compare it to some of the rooms girls do today.  When I was a freshman, matching and getting everything new was not always the “thing” to do.…
