It’s been a while–what’s new

Hi everyone. It’s been some time, eh? A quick update on me: I graduated from university, and I have a real job and whatnot. I’m also a content editor for a startup company in Atlanta–CulinaryLocal. They’re a marketing and ticketing platform for local food and drink events in Atlanta. Basically, I get to know all…

MerSea Paris!

I must be the worst blogger for stopping in the middle of a story. My school schedule is a little less full, so I will make it my new (school) year’s resolution to update you each Wednesday. Today, of course is exception. I decided that, while spending a few hours in the Philadelphia airport, to…

Il Neige à Paris

Welcome to Paris, a city of wine, baguettes,and, for us, snow and rain. Travel this semester was spectacular, though, I don’t think anything can add up to the fun I had in Italy. Paris is Paris, of course, so no complaints from me. Our room was nice and cozy. The view out or window looked…

Christmas Time in Basel and Lugano

Please, please, please don’t hate me for not writing all the time. This is a terribly long amount of time that I haven’t written, and I’m sorry. While I was in Paris–which I promise I will write about soon–I tried to update everything, but the internet was absolutely terrible. Christmas time, if you want to…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Last night, Wednesday, the school had a Thanksgiving dinner. We were surprised by the elegance of the whole evening. Christmas lights were strung on the railings; tables were covered in table clothes; candles were lit in red glass holders; Prosecco was served in flutes. Another surprise came when we were seated. My good group of…

A Surprising Evening

    I was lying on the floor doing homework when I heard a knock at the window. Thinking that it was Jodi and Liz coming back from the play and, forgetting their keys, needing me to let them into the building. I got up, opened the curtain, and surprise! Makoto and Julia were there!…

The City of Glass

Breakfast in Ravenna was more than I could ask for. For the first time in a really long time, I had a plum and yogurt with granola. Along with it, there was cheese and meat and grapefruit juice. It also helps that my cappuccino was perfect. Coming back to Switzerland, that is the main thing…

Olive Oil Tasting and Wine Tasting #2

The old olive oil (last year’s): The olive oil that was pressed the night before: In order to properly taste olive oil in order to understand it’s quality, you take about a Tsp, swish it around your mouth, and slurp it. If you feel a spiciness in your throat, it’s the good stuff. With the…

Last Night in My Favorite Place in the World

Sunday morning, I woke up early and went with Kevin to mass at the monastery. Thankfully, I’ve been going to mass in Italian, so responding and participating was much easier. The sisters were kind. It was in a little chapel in the back of the church. The whole mass was very peaceful. Sitting and waiting for the…

I Love Italy

Saturday morning, we went to the ledge and saw the valley covered in fog. Because of its thickness, a little house at the bottom was barely visible. As we drove, the fog began to clear as the wind picked up, allowing for glimpses of the mountains. Soon, it was swirling around the hills and valleys,…

We’re All Mad Here

Waking up, once again, to a cold room, I finished packing and went down for breakfast. Not too hungry, I had a yogurt, juice, and a cappuccino. Gubbio has to be one of my favorite stops. We started with cappuccinos, (yes, another one) in a little hole in the wall place. It was a great…
