Farewell, Sorrento

Ciao Tutti!

I'm sorry its been so long since my last blog, I have been so busy finishing up all my work for the end of this semester!

I am down to my final day here in Sorrento. I cannot believe how quickly this semester has passed! I remember when I was a sophomore at Alfred State College and I was wondering if it was really worth the money to go overseas and study in Sorrento, and I have definitely figured out an answer to that question: it is worth every penny.

Presentation for Marina Piccola

Ciao Tutti!

This week I have some exciting news in terms of our architectural work here in Sorrento! For the past several weeks, Alfred State architecture students here in Sorrento have been slaving over a project for the main ferry port in Sorrento: Marina Piccola. Our class was split into three main groups, each with their own unique ideas on how to improve Sorrento's Marina Piccola. The business students here in Sorrento also aided the presentation by presenting practical business solutions to the problems of Marina Piccola to promote business and environmental sustainability.

Field Trip to Oplontis

Ciao Tutti!

Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my blog! My blog for today isn’t as exciting as the past few blogs I have posted – it is pretty hard to top Barcelona and Athens! But this trip was still a lot of fun for me.

Spring Break 2011 Part III ~ Athens

Ciao Tutti!

I have all of my photos organized from our Athens trip, so now I can finally tell you all about it!

Athens was an amazing place. It had tons of awesome souvenier shops and stores, amazing food and restaurants (not as good as the ones in Sorrento, but they are pretty close!), and the amount of ancient ruins in the city made for the perfect end to our spring break.

My Second Day in Barcelona

Okay, now its time to tell you all about my second day in Barcelona! Our day started off a little shaky - We ran into some rainy weather. Luckily Barcelona has a really great place to go when it is raining outside: The Aquarium!

Spring Break Part II ~ Barcelona

Ciao Tutti!

I finally have gotten all of my photos organized from the second part of my travels during spring break, so I can now tell you all about the second city I got to visit: Barcelona!

Me and my friends left Rome very early in the morning from Rome, and arrived in Barcelona around 11 o'clock, so we could still manage to do half a day of sight seeing, and we took full advantage.

Since me and my friends are architecture nuts (which is not in any way embarrassing) we went to see the work of one of the most innovative thinkers of his time: Antonio Gaudi.

My Spring break Travels ~ Part 1: The Vatican

Ciao tutti!

I am so sorry that it has been so long since my last post, due to the European ‘backpacking’ lifestyle that I lived for the past week, I simply could not find the means to post blogs during my travels of Europe. As I had promised in my last blog post, I will now take the opportunity to tell you all about my travels during spring break during my next several blog posts. I hope you enjoy hearing about my travels as much as I enjoyed living them!
