Morocco: Transportation Station

Getting around Morocco can either be a pleasant journey or a laughably horrible disaster-adventure. First of all, don’t overexert yourself expecting the unexpected. Just relax and accept whatever is happening. It might take a couple extra hours to reach your destination, but that’s never really a problem. Second, always budget for extra time and money….

Irish You Were There

In mid-March, I had the opportunity to spend 36 hours in beautiful Dublin with a friend. It’s hard to get a lot done in only 36 hours, but we hit a few of the highlights and spent some time wandering the streets before our flight back to the UK. Our hotel was located about 45…

England: Mind the Gap (and Other Travel Tips)

When most people think of London, they typically think of the Underground, London’s extensive subway. With trains arriving every 3 minutes, the tube, as locals call it, is efficient and one of the quickest ways to travel. Not only is it fast, it’s also one of the cleanest public transport options I’ve ever used. I’m…

Arrival at Ole Miss by Gaia

My name is Gaia and I was born in Lecco, Italy but have lived most of my life abroad. For my junior year of college I have embarked on a year abroad in warm Oxford, Mississippi after having spent my first 2 college years in rainy and cold Edinburgh, UK. 5 weeks in my study abroad at…

March Madness: Part 3

I know it may seem a little ridiculous that I’m still writing about March at the end of April, but I told you March had a lot going on! April has been full of schoolwork (yeah, that does exist here), but now that I have a little break I can finish telling you about last…

One month already?

Happy Leap Day! Unfortunately I didn’t find anyone to propose to today, but I’m keeping my eyes open. 😉 Even though my love life isn’t like Amy Adams’ in “Leap Year,” I do often feel like my life is a movie. I just marked one month in Ireland, and every day seems to have its own surprise….

Bitten By The Travel Bug: Hurt So Good

I’ve contracted the disease. The symptoms are all there: spontaneously buying bus tickets to new countries, laughing at my dwindling bank account with little remorse, traveling directly after class ends on Friday and only returning to Angers in time for my Monday class. Every night I find myself obsessively searching for the cheapest route to…

Amsterdam: Czeching Out Hungary

I know it’s been so long since my last post, but I’ve been going nonstop! Between trips and school I’ve had hardly any down time, but hey I’m definitely not complaining. Last week I went with a friend to Budapest, Hungary and Prague, Czech Republic (hence the pun-filled name of this post title) and fell in…

Belgium: A Weekend of Firsts

After two weekends in a row of traveling, I’m back in Amsterdam, curled up with a cup of my favorite tea uploading all my pictures and wearing my new flannel (a sign that the weather has finally started showing the first glimpse of fall). Two weekends ago, I went with a group of my friends…
