Ciao, I started off this week with a local wine tasting activity. We learned about different kinds of grapes and wines and what makes a good wine good. It was really interesting but I learned I’m not a huge fan of red wine. We learned about how you should eat specific bread or specific meals with...

A Parisian Experience My second destination for fall break was Paris, and it was a one-of-a-kind experience. As soon as we arrived and put our stuff down in the hostel, our tour guides took the group to a fondue restaurant. It was my first time having fondue, so I was so excited to experience this with ...
