La Fine

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

After one amazing month, I’m back home. It’s good to be back in the states, but I miss Italy more than anything. I fully intend to go back to Orvieto when I can…this was far too good of an experience not to repeat. Thanks again to anyone who helped make it happen, and to everyone […]

The End Of The Days

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Today I took my final for Italian 202, and tomorrow at 12:30 I’ll be done with classes here forever!  It’s a weird realization that I’ll be heading home in just a few days.  I’ve really grown to love this town, and I feel as comfortable here as I do at home, or in Fredericksburg.  All […]

The Final Countdown

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

So I realized this morning that I have less than a week in Orvieto.  That’s right…only about 6.5 more days.  That’s scary, and I’m trying my best not to think about it.  It’s been a really fun trip thus far, and although I do miss the states, I’m not nearly ready to leave.  It’s strange […]

It’s Kind Of A Funny Story…

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Let me preface this story:  our first week here we asked our teacher Alessandra if famous people from America came to Orvieto often, because it’s a very beautiful historic town, but it’s not very big and not very touristy.  She said many Italian stars did, but she didn’t know of any Americans.  Well… Today after […]

Other Important Things:

First and foremost:  a huge thanks to everybody who made this trip possible, especially Ginger Harper and Seven Snoddy.  🙂 Second:  I’m not sure if most people realize this, but if you want to see bigger versions of the pictures I post, just click on them, and you can see more details. Third:  Thanks for […]

2nd Semester

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

So as of now I’m just past halfway through with my trip.  It’s a bittersweet feeling…it’ll be nice to be back in the states, but I really love Orvieto.  This weekend was absolutely hectic.  Friday we had our final exam, (because we’re covering 2 semesters of material in two 2 week periods) went to Lake […]

The Food!

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

So…here’s the lowdown on the food (aka il cibo):  it’s all amazing!  That being said, I’m a pizza/pasta kinda girl.  But even their paninis, which are really just sandwiches, are really good.  Here are the highlights:

A picture’s worth a thousand words….

So this post must be worth a lot.  Long story short, our apartment has wifi, but I hadn’t been able to connect to it on my computer, just my iPod touch.  Today, I gave it another shot, and it worked!  It’s a miracle.  So this means you guys get a glimpse of what I’ve been […]

The Latest

Friday, June 24th, 2011

So…thus far I’ve had the most amazing pizza margarita, really good pasta with a spicy red sauce, and lots of gelato. Last night we went to my professor’s apartmet and cooked dinner: fresh pasta with bacon, tomatoes, and onions with tiramisu for dessert. We also got to get some fresh fruit at an open market, […]

I’m here!

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

Sorry it’s been so long folks. I’ve had very minimal internet access. So far in Italy I’ve had the best pizza, pasta, and gelalto I’ve ever had. Our apartment is really nice and classes are going well. More to come soon!
