When you’re preparing for a semester abroad, it’s easy to get stressed out or carried away over your shopping list. Everywhere I looked online was recommending that I buy lots of expensive travel supplies, and my budget just wouldn’t support it. Here’s my breakdown of the things I ended up buying (or not) for my study abroad program, and whether I think the purchase would be worthwhile for you.
Last weekend, my housemates, our significant others, and I all packed up and went on an overnight triple date to Wisconsin, aka “America’s Dairyland.”
Happy Friday! Here are a few photos that gave me a laugh during my Europe trip.
Nestled in the vibrant Tuscan hills surrounding Florence is the snug, beautiful town of Fiesole. A summer vacation destination of literary legends like Gertrude Stein and a prominent, romantic setting in the classic novel A Room with a View by E.M. Forster, Fiesole is a charming daytrip option that is walkable from Florence and that has incredible views of the Italian countryside.
Because someone wanted me to write about “alleys.”
One year on, I’m reflecting on the areas where study abroad had the biggest impact on my life.
I’m excited for this #FoodieFriday post because I lived in England and (surprisingly!) I really enjoyed the food there! While the UK definitely isn’t known for its food the way places like France and Italy are (in fact, England’s cuisine is sometimes known for being infamously bad), there are still a lot of tasty and uniquely British dishes you can try on a visit there.
