The third weekend of November I had a friend visit from the states, which was really nice to have a familiar face around from back home! That Sunday we hopped on a plane and visited Roma, which would be my last time visiting my favorite country during my time abroad!! Clearly, Italy holds a very special place in my heart. I was very excited to … Continue reading Seriously Slacking (Part II)

Since I last wrote about Stockholm I have visited both Kiel and Berlin in Germany and also traveled to Italy, for the third time, on a visit to Roma!

Hey y’all!! I am going to be extremely raw in this post and address mental health issues that are rarely ever associated with studying on exchange. This one is for the abroad peeps who can relate, peeps who are considering abroad but the only impression they have is what is seen on Instagram/social media, and all the other peeps who may be interested in my … Continue reading All in my Feels
That Sunday, October 14th, we arrived to our little bed and breakfast in the mountains outside of Assisi, Italy. Assisi is situated in Umbria, which is basically Tuscany! This bed and breakfast, Le Mandrie Di San Paolo, is built on a farm house dating back 1000 years. It is now owned and operated by three generations of the same family, which made our stay all … Continue reading Danish Kartoffelferie, Ten Days of Potato Picking!! (Part Two)
Last week was Kartoffelferie, which is Denmark’s ten day potato holiday. Why is it called a potato holiday, you ask? Well, in Denmark this autumn break used to be extremely important for potato harvesting; thus, families and their children took days off to help along in the potato fields. Now, I didn’t actually go anywhere near potato fields. In fact, I did the polar opposite vacationing … Continue reading Danish Kartoffelferie, Ten Days of Potato Picking!! (Part One)
Greetings from Milano!! This past weekend is debatably my favorite ever since I left the states, but it definitely started as an emotional rollercoaster and I have learned that I am 100% a bad luck charm when it comes to traveling. Stay away from me, beware!! For months I had plans to spend Tara’s 21st birthday weekend with her and her family in Ravello, Italy! … Continue reading Heaven on Earth, The Amalfi Coast
Hi y’all! I am sorry this post is almost two weeks late. Last week was a little busy for me with school and I fell ill, unfortunately. All is swell now and I hope you are ready for pretty cool update on life. Two weekends ago, September 28- October 1st, I attended Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. This was my first time travelling by train alone … Continue reading Prostin’ and München: Oktoberfest
Henlooo from Studenterhuset, my favorite coffee shop in the center of Copenhagen, which is where I spend most of my time studying/being productive when I need a change of scenery from the usual campus environment. Studenterhuset is a student run coffee shop catered to University of Copenhagen and neighboring university students, but also turns into a bar at night. I love that I can spend … Continue reading Copenhanging Out
First and foremost, my trip has been wild from start to finish. Friday morning I woke up at 4:43 AM to Jordan breaking and entering into my container to wake me up for our bus to the airport that left at 5:00 AM. OF COURSE, I hadn’t packed yet. So imagine two frantic girls sprinting around Lyngby and Copenhagen just to make sure we don’t … Continue reading A Weekend in Catalonia… or Spain?
Part II: Rise and Shine!! Friday morning at 6am Jordan and I embarked on our first of five trip, Eurorail journey! We got on a train to Oslo, Norway! Prior to getting to Europe we decided to travel by train for most of our trips because that was the old fashioned, traditional way of travel. It is unique and fun. Once we got on our … Continue reading Part II: The Land of Many Vikings and Even More Fjords, Norway!!
