Italy is known for it’s art. I am an art major, but I wanted to focus more on the architecture and placement of things. This series of photographs come from a school field trip that took place in Rome and the Vatican. We went to several different churches and buildings and the Colosseum. I can not wrap my head around how someone could build these incredible structures. I hope you enjoy these photographs, and I hope they do justice to how incredible and beautiful these places are in real…

Rome is a beautiful city with sites to see around every corner. Before I left, everyone loved to tell me that I could live in Rome my entire life and still not see everything. I finally believe them. In an effort to see as much of Rome as I could (and to maybe catch a sneaky glimpse of the Pope walking in the gardens), I decided I would take the trek up to the top of St. Peter’s Basilica. After paying my 6 euro to get in, I…

“MOJO” is a difficult title to add to your résumé. Not a lot of future employers will know what a MOJO is and a quick google search will show them a Wikipedia page of mojo sauce (whatever that is). So how do you explain to them your relevant experience quickly on a one sheet paper that will at best, be skimmed? Here’s how to to get the most out of your experience without lying on your résumé. Explaining “MOJO” on Paper & Online It is best practice to modify…

CEA offers a variety of fun and cultural academic activities. I decided to take part in the cooking class offered to us. It was a three hour class, but defiantly worth it. We started out by creating the ‘dough’ for our fresh pasta. All you need to make fresh pasta is eggs, flour and a little bit of salt. While the ‘dough’ was resting, we started to work on our appetizer which was an eggplant souffle.   While the eggplant souffle baked in the oven, we started to work…

We have a washer and dish washer stored underneath the kitchen top.Then to the right is our refrigerator. Here is our loft which has two chairs a table stand and then not pictured is the TV. Here you can get a glimpse of how I decorated my room to make it…

Our first excursion with CEA was to Honfleur, France. It’s a charming coastal city in Northern France that is home to vibrant markets, a bustling downtown harbor, and lots of color.

This video is a tour of my school in Prague called Anglo American University. I love my school because not only are my classes full of other American students from all across the United States, but they are also full of students from many other countries too. I’ve met so many great friends at AAU and I’ve had some of the best professors imaginable. I’m forever thankful for the knew knowledge this school has given me!

Having lived in Prague for a few months now, I can appreciate how lucky I am to live in the Ujezd district of Prague 5. I live only a few steps away from the prettiest area of Prague, Petrin Hill. Popular in the warm months, Petrin Hill is the perfect spot in Prague if you want exercise, mixed with the best view of the city. About a month ago, the cherry blossom trees at the base of the hill opened up and are now in full bloom. I…

Prague is known for it’s hearty Czech food such as goulash and bread dumplings. I have eaten my fair share of Czech food since I’ve been abroad, but I have also been trying just about every other type of cuisine I can find. Below is a compilation of all of my favorite international restaurants in Prague city that I would recommendto everyone who visits. Pasta Fresca Prague has an unusually high amount of Italian food everywhere you look. I have not had a bad Italian meal since I’ve been…

After I made the decision to study abroad I promised myself that I would go all in and really make an effort to get out of my comfort zone. Visit new places, make new friends, try every food possible, speak Spanish whenever I could, and even try to ask for directions if I got lost (something that has always intimidated me). Despite the fact that I haven’t taken a Spanish class in almost four years I really wanted to challenge myself, so of course I thought it’d be a…
