Finals season is in full swing so shenanigans have significantly decreased. I, fortunately, don’t have my final until 27 June so I was able to afford a few moments to enjoy myself this week....
In this week’s episode: an average (yet warm) few days in Geneva, and a five-day adventure back to sweet home Chicago.
Last week got off to an interesting start.
This was my first free weekend in a long time and it’s been absolutely lovely. Almost every weekend of this study abroad program I have traveled somewhere—even if only a day-trip—and it has been totally exhausting.
It has now been over a month since Dan and I took our two-and-a-half-day trip to Tenerife, one of Spain’s Canary Islands. This post has been dormant, half-finished, for nearly as long; spring break and assignments, sadly, pushed it to the back burner. In light of my recent trip to Barcelona, I realized that I couldn’t write a blog post about one Spanish city without the context of the other. Plus, I’ve been working on this one long enough….
A summary of my Rome trip in numbers: 72 hours, 80,000 steps...and one 6,000+ word blog post.
At long last, only 12 days later, I have finally finished my overdue weekend blog post! (New resolution: get these posts out faster.) Two Saturdays ago, a group of us in the BU program went wine tasting at a local vineyard and Dan and I attended a football game (known as soccer to you Americans). Read on, if you’ve maintained interest even after two weeks!
