A Stone Cold Day

With my study abroad term quickly coming to an end, I’ve made up a list of places I wanted to re-visit in England. Since Thanksgiving isn’t celebrated in England, many cities started setting up their Christmas decorations and displays in mid-November. My flatmates helped me go through the towns I had visited since September and ...

A Scotland Reunion

When I found out that two of my closest friends at Drexel would be studying abroad in both Scotland and Spain at the same time I would be abroad in England, I was beyond ecstatic! The last time we were on campus together was pre-COVID, so spending a few days in Edinburgh last week with ...

Not Enough Time

It feels like just last week that I had nearly 4 months to spend in Italy and do everything I wanted to do. The time went by so quickly. I now have less than 40 days left here and there is so much that I still want to do. I have more trips planned that ...

Due to the castle being build almost 600 years ago, there is a lot of history that accompanies the castle which makes it interesting to visit. However, ...

An Impromptu Trip to Vienna, Austria

This weekend, I explored the wonders of Prague, Capital of the Czech Republic, and through some crazy circumstances, I also got a day trip to the beautiful Vienna, Austria! The trip started as a crazy roller coaster of events. Leaving from our home city in Florence, we had to go to the bus station much ...

We’re Going on a Trip, Vale?

Buenos dias chicos! I’ve settled into Madrid quite nicely and I have to say this city continues to amaze me. From the cheaper clothes at Zara (bless Madrid) to the incredible food choices, I never go to sleep disappointed. As much as I love Madrid, I decided to do some exploring this weekend. So my ...
