It was Easter Weekend, which meant that we had that Monday off, so a four day weekend, and what better place to spend a four day weekend than in Barcelona, Spain. Iyana, Deanna, Chase, Zach, and I traveled to Barcelona for beaches and Spanish f...

Midterms are over, and the end of midterms means one of the greatest things a college student has ever experienced…Spring Break. Spending Spring Break while in Europe is a whole new world and, naturally, we had to hit as many countries as possible.

Ciao! Last weekend, we took another break from traveling, and, instead, just hung out in Prato, and by hung out, I mean we recuperated from our previous weeks of travel.

Letters to Juliet Ciao! After our weekend in Prato, Deanna, Iyana, and I brought our adventures elsewhere in Italy. Our first stop for the weekend was Venice, Italy. They were not joking when they said the city was all water. Pedestrian walkways are alleyways and streets are canals. People don’t d...

Pheewww! Considering we had last weekend off, we sure kept ourselves busy. After we saw the Prato soccer game last Saturday, we spent the entire day on Sunday at Carnivale in Viareggio, which is only about an hour away by train. It was Valentine’s Day, so what better way to spend the day than going...

 Lizzie McGuire Moment It is only week two in Prato and it is already becoming increasingly difficult to balance the fun that is to come with being abroad and doing schoolwork.

What a bittersweet feeling it is to know that this is our last week here in Prato, Italy. It definitely does not feel like it has been three months that we have been here because of how fast time flies. It has been an amazing and insightful experience that neither myself nor any of the students will...
