Spring Break


After taking 2 weeks off of travel, Sabrina and I were so happy to have our parents come over to Italy and spend spring break with us!!! It felt like so long since I’d seen them. We spent the first day showing them around Milan and where we live. The next day we set off to see Cinque Terre, where we spent the next 4 or 5 days exlploring the colorful seaside towns of Monterosso, Levanto, Manarola, Vernazza, and Riomaggiore. We spent two days hiking between towns…the first between Levanto and Monterossa, and the second between Monterossa and Vernazza. I had a great time with them. I felt like a lot of the weight of traveling by yourself/with Sabrina, had been lifted. And it was great to finally have some good company too:) Sabrina and I didnt really make any friends since being here, unfortunately, and I dont know why…but it was so awesome to have some one else to talk to:D lol haha

The second half of the vacation we spend on Lago di Garda. My parents had seen my pictures of this area from earlier in our study abroad trip, and wanted to spend some time here. We ended up sending the rest of the trip at this location because of the good weather. We spent this part of the trip walking around the lake and town, biking, and sightseeing other towns on the lake. I really had a great time…and when it came down to say goodbye yesterday, i didnt keep my cool. Let’s just say i had to skip my first class because my eyes and face were so swollen from crying i looked horrible…and i was not in the mood to act out my role in our play.

I really have loved studying abroad, but i’ve found it so hard being this far from my family and friends. Even now, after 3 months, i often feel very lonely…and when i see cool places i wish these people were here with me. I  feel like sometimes im quite ready to go home…IMG_2391 IMG_2460 IMG_2501
