While Abroad – Peruvian Clinical Experience

Traveling to Tarapoto, Peru required two flights: our flight to Lima and another flight from Lima to Tarapoto. Honestly, I have not heard too many things about Peru and what it was like, so everything I saw was a bit of a surprise. When we arrived in Lima, it was very late at night so I did not see much. We stayed overnight for our morning flight and I got to see a peek of what Lima was like. It was very surprising honestly –...

Firenze, Italy

It’s definitely been a crazy few weeks here in Firenze. At first it was a tough adjustment but I’m learning to get used to the big city life. When we first arrived in the city it was a bit overwhelming and I was already having second thoughts about the whole experience. After the first day of class I was feeling a lot more comfortable with where I was because the teachers were so inviting and understanding. The teachers here seem to...

Part One: The Great European Gelato Tour

A brief summary: I started out on this three-month, eight-country* journey on May 12, with a ticket to Belgrade, Serbia as part of the Serbia Fellowship Experience.

Summer Brings Change

I’ll include my winter posts soon, so please be looking out for those, but I would like to begin with everything that has happened thus far this month. For the first time in a while, I was able to travel to Osaka after school. While Kyoto is a lovely and quiet city, Osaka is by far better for wanting to do anything outside of sightseeing historical shrines and temples! I got to enjoy myself by hanging out in the city for a bit...

A magical garden – Villa Gamberaia!!

Need to get away from the city? The city of Florence and the country side of Florence are two very different regions. One region you have tons of tourists, it is overpopulated, and then you have the same street vendors trying to sell you items every corner you turn. Do not get me wrong, the city is beautiful and a marvelous time, however, if you want to visit somewhere that is relaxing and uncongested visit Villa Gamberaia, in...
