Before getting ready to visit Italy, my friends and I talked about what trips we wanted to go on, what to do in Florence and how to have a wonderful experience abroad. We also discussed Italian etiquette.
This past weekend, I had the opportunity to travel to Roma, Italy, with friends of mine in the College of Communication and Information cohort and two of my fabulous professors, Fabio Corsini and Francesca Passeri. I was joined later with more students from other cohorts in the Kent State study abroad program.
As a child, I imagined Tuscany to have a beautiful landscape complete with vast green land stretched out below a bright blue sky and those tall, skinny trees aligning a beautiful pale peach villa—basically everything you’d see if you watched “Under the Tuscan Sun.”
Imagine beautiful sunny skies, crystal-turquoise Mediterranean seas, fresh granite and a boat tour around an island. Sounds beautiful, right? I agree. Traveling to the Amalfi Coast was exactly what I needed for another relaxing weekend away. It was paradise at its finest.
Maybe you know Paris as the city of macaroons, baguettes and croissants. Or maybe you know it as home to that large, rectangular monument surrounding the largest roundabout in the world (the Arc de Triomphe). Regardless, you’re correct in every way, and I got to experience everything Paris had to offer.
