  • Missing Milano

    I have been back in California for three weeks now and I have started to feel nostalgic about my time abroad.

  • This is not “Ciao”

    So as I sit here, sipping my favorite wine I discovered here in Italy, I just keep telling myself “This isn’t ciao, this is just arrivederci.”

  • Culture and Cuisine in Italy

    Before spring break started I went on the Culture and Cuisine trip put together by IES. During this trip a bus lugged around all of us IES students to Cremona, Parma, Montova, then finally to Castell’Arquato. We saw many Duomos and theaters, walked around a lot, and also ate a lot(which was the best part.)

  • Sensational Brussels

    Last weekend I finally traveled outside of Italy and went to Brussels! I went with two of my roommates but many IES students also went to the Brussels the same weekend to attend a concert called Sensation. We also went to Sensation but we had all day Saturday to explore the city which mostly involved eating.

  • Milan Fashion Week and Carnivale

    Milan Fashion Week just ended yesterday and what better way to end it than by going to a fashion show! This past weekend was also carnivale for Milan so we attempted to walk to the Duomo square to partake the the festivities.

  • Venice for Carnivale!

    The weekend of the 17th a few of my roommates and I took the train to Venice for carnivale! It was great. There were a lot of people on the train who also were on their way to carnivale.

  • Snow (Hey Oh)

    Apparently this is the coldest winter Milan had had 50 years or so. While I don’t disagree that it is uncomfortably cold it is not all that bad, especially when it is snowing! My one wish while I was abroad in Milan was that it would snow so I was astatic when it did.

  • Lost

    It’s hard to believe i’ve been in Milan for three weeks now. It feels like it has been longer. I just ended my second week of my intensive italian course and it is indeed, intense. We are learning so much so fast.

  • Weary Traveller

    I think the jet-lag has finally passed and now that we do not have orientation, I have free afternoons to explore this city.
