If at first you don’t suc(skied)…

For me, study abroad has been full of a lot of firsts. First time leaving the country; first time out of the state of Alabama for more than ten days, but some of these firsts haven’t been quite as extreme.  I spent one of my first weekends in Grenoble, France an hour away from the city, skiing for the first time ever. For those who don’t know me–this was a terrifying (exhilarating…eventually) experience, as...

Florence Italy Spring Semester 2018

Ciao! We just took off from Logan Airport and are finally on the way to Florence, Italy! Woohoo! We have a connecting flight in Zurich, Switzerland (already checking another city off the list).

I have quite a list of things I hope to accomplish and hopefully I...

After that we stumbled upon Germany’s capitol the...

My final undergraduate adventure: Tanzania!

If you had told me four years ago that I’d be spending my last undergraduate semester in Tanzania, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. I knew that I was going to do everything in my power to study abroad, but given that my minor is Spanish, I aspired to study in a Spanish-speaking country to improve my language skills. Thus, when the time came to pick a study abroad program, I decided to spend the second semester of my sophomore...

What type of traveller are you?

You learn a lot about yourself when you travel because you see how you react to new situations. One thing I learned about myself was the type of traveler I was. People have different interests and personalities and that effects how they like to travel. Booshie traveller- you are the type of person that likes pictures of those five star resorts you see online with the spas and infinity pools. Your eyes widen when you see a Ferrari and...
