Weekends

After a hectic week, we live for the weekends. The brunch scene in Paris is ridiculous. Early Saturday morning, my roommates and I venture over to the 10th arrondissement on the Right Bank. Our intent is to fill our bellies. We get to HolyBelly at 11:00AM and already there’s a mass crowd surrounding the storefront. ...

Cachai?: Parapente en el Cielo!

Hola amigos!! This is your buddy Anthony Perez with another sweet glimpse into how I have been passing my time here in Chile. Very recently, there was an extended break due to two holidays which gave me an ample amount of time to go out and have fun. Since it was a little too late ...

Cachai?: Algarrobo

Hola amigos! Now a little word of advice for ANYONE who plans to study abroad in the future: always check your calendar and plan ahead of time. I had found out pretty last minute that October 28th to November 1st was an extended weekend due to two holidays (Reformation Day & All Saints Day); thus, ...

Studying Abroad or Eating Abroad?

This first week was our first full week in Florence. We had orientation every day and learned about living in Florence the hard way. By this I mean your true study abroad experience will not begin for a good month into your time in your host country. Every day of these first few weeks were filled ...

I left my heart in Czech Republic

I left my heart in Czech Republic. If I could recommend anywhere for you to visit (obviously other than Florence) it would be Prague. There is so much to see and do in this city and two days was not enough. My friends and I took a tour with Bus2alps to Oktoberfest and Prague for ...

Oktoberfest in September???

The morning of Oktoberfest was very quick and filled with little sleep. Once we got on the bus we took as long as a nap as we could, knowing the day was going to be filled withactivities. The first stop when we got to Munich was to find Brittany a dirndl because it was very ...

Raíces: Segovia

Hola amigos, I had a long weekend! There was no class on Halloween and the day after was All-Saints’ Days, a national holiday here in Spain. I considered taking a long weekend trip elsewhere in Europe but I ended up just staying home and relaxing for most of the weekend. I’ve been traveling almost every weekend, ...

十二 | Halloween in HK

October 31st, 2016 I’ve been looking forward to experiencing Halloween in Hong Kong. The whole weekend college kids have been heading out to parties and clubs dressed up in costumes.   I’ve been told from locals that Halloween is somewhat new to the HK Kong culture, but it’s so hard to tell because there was ...

十三 | Africa Coffee and Tea

October 23rd, 2016 I’ve been quite active in Hong Kong, and meeting tons of cool people. Every weekend I’m looking on different local websites and blogs about events/happenongs. I tend to usually end up in Central, specifically at PMQ which I mentioned in a previous post. It’s the same place I attended the fashion event some ...
