STUDY abroad

When considering studying abroad, many times we do not put a whole lot of thought into the “study” part.  We think more about where we want to travel and what sort of traveling we want to do.  But honestly, being here studying, I think it is important not only to reflect on what I am learning, but…

Gibraltar!

Hey y’all! I know it’s been a while, but my last month was crazy! While my parents came to visit me in Málaga, my home base, we took a day trip to Gibraltar. Gibraltar is a territory of the UK but it is at the southernmost tip of Spain and it is very close to Morocco. It was…

France: Aix In 24 Hours

From sunlight to sun down as 24 hours pass in a small city called Aix-en-Provence you can watch a town transform. This city known as Aix is located in the south of France. A large group of the population here is young students. There are many universities you can find throughout town for Business, Liberal…

Czech Republic: Spring Break Part 2: Naples & the Amalfi Coast

Part two of spring break was my favorite part of Italy. We stayed in Naples and did day trips to Mount Vesuvius, Pompeii, Sorrento, and Positano, so it was an incredibly busy few days! Naples was a really cool city. It was nothing like Naples, Florida near where I live where it’s obvious that it’s…

Czech Republic: Spring Break Part 1: When in Roma

For spring break I spent a week in Italy and it was incredible! I spent the first half of my trip in Rome and the other half in Naples and the Amalfi Coast so it only seemed fitting to split my adventures in to two parts. Rome was everything I dreamed it would be. Like…

Spring Break: Disneyland Paris

I have always loved anything and everything Disney. I’ve never been a Disney super fan, but I would never turn down a trip to the happiest place on earth. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be a kid again, at least for a little while? So when I decided I was going to Paris for…

Vienna, Venice, or Verona?

I left France two weeks ago to travel Europe. My plans were simple in my mind. First take a train to Paris, then fly to Vienna, drive to Hallstatt, drive to Prague, drive back to Vienna, fly to London, fly to Dublin, catch a train to Galway, catch another train to Killarney, catch one last…

Switzerland: Livin’ la vida loca

So, over the past ten days or so, this Swiss Miss wasn’t in Switzerland (yet again). The University of Fribourg had their first vacation for Easter, and rather than stick around and study, I decided to meet up with my American roommate in Spain! Feliz navidad! (Okay, so I don’t know how to say Happy…

Spring Break: Amsterdam

If you would have told me before I left for spring break that I would love Amsterdam, I would have probably quickly disagreed. But after a few hours in this amazing city, where bikes outnumber people, I found myself wishing I had more than a day and a half to explore. I know what you’re…
