week 4

It is now week four of my study abroad trip and I have been to New York, London, Paris and finally, Milan. The trip started out awkward and a little weird since we had all just meet each other and we were still in the USA. I wish we would’ve gone straight to London instead of spending time in New York because I didn’t really feel like I was doing anything special and I had been there before. Arriving in London, I was a...

Ireland, Pre-Departure

My name is Darci Bevan, a rising Senior at the University of Alabama.  I am about to embark on the journey of a lifetime, to Dublin, Ireland for my summer internship. I will be working at Sutton Lawn and Tennis Club during my time there. The farthest out of the country I have ever been was Peru, in South America. I had always wanted to study abroad, but I did not want to leave school to do so. Through the program called CISAbroad,...

The girl next to me turned and introduced herself and we both shared that we had taken Italian 101, but we were nervous about Italian 102 because we were afraid we...

Initially, the first thoughts going through my head were all positive and I could not wait to be home, see my friends, and eat the food that I had been missing for four months. Of course, I missed Florence and all of the incredible people that I met there, but I am sure that I will be back and definitely stay...

Preparing for abroad

Studying abroad without a doubt is an exciting adventure but comes with many different factors. This past summer I had the opportunity to travel to Greece and Italy. I had a little bit of a culture shock and I was ready to come home about the 10th day that I was there. Although this study abroad trip will be very diffferent than my last trip, I am still nervous and not sure how I am going to react to living in a foreign country for 4...

Pre-depature- #uafashioncapitals

I have wanted to study abroad ever since I began college, and the time is finally here! On Sunday I leave for New York City, and a week later our group will travel to London, Paris, and we will end in Milan. Our group is full of fashion majors, so of course we are visiting four of the biggest fashion cities around the world. I have prepared for this trip by researching some of the designer’s whose studios we will be visiting. I...
