There are only three weeks left in Prato and I am already dreading leaving. I am having the absolute best time of my life. We spent another weekend in Prato last week and it was filled with even more relaxation. Last Friday, I took advantage of one of the many free school trips that are offered on the...

Ciao! Another week in Prato, another week closer to being home and I could not be more upset about leaving this beautiful country. Last weekend was Deanna’s birthday, and so we visited the beautiful area of Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre is a set of five small towns located along the shore of Northern...

Last weekend, I went on another one of my many adventures. 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...

Slowly but surely, I’m getting back into the swing of things with classes. Last week, I started volunteering for my Italian class at a local school in Prato. Four days a week, I go to the school and help the students practice their English, while I attempt to use Italian to explain things to them....

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. The past week has been constant studying, as it was midterm week for us here in Italy. To take a break from studying, our Italian...

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...

After a long few weekends of traveling, we decided to take this past weekend off and actually participate more heavily in the study part of study abroad. But that still didn’t prevent us from exploring all that Prato has to offer. On Friday, we attempted to work the public bus system in hopes to arrive...

They say you only study abroad once. Well, even that’s a slim chance. According to Association of International Educators, only 1.5 percent of students have studied abroad in 2014, and this number is up from the previous year.

I’m still searching for my Paolo after my weekend in Rome, but after being in that city for the weekend, Paolo was the last thing on my mind. I went with two of my friends, Iyana Jones and Deanna Weech, and I think I can successfully say that we conquered Rome in one weekend. In just the first day...

 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. I have started to explore the city, and every day I find something new that I had no clue existed. For example, there i...

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...
