    (I wrote this entry in the middle of September, but have only now made time to edit and post it! Stay tuned for an up-to-date post regarding my last few weeks of work) My much-anticipated internship with Tenuta San Vito began a few weeks ago on the very first day of harvest. I was graciously welcomed early Monday morning with the picking of an unusual Tuscan product, the Chardonnay grape. The …

    With 3 entire days planned to spend in Dublin, Erica and I were determined to get on our plane and spend a tranquil weekend surrounded by the much-missed English language. The flight was scheduled to depart from Pisa at 6:30 AM and our only option from Florence to the airport was a 3:30 AM bus. Once we arrived at the train station where the stop was supposed to be, …

    The U-Bahn was brimming with stocky German men in costume suede shorts and traditionally dressed women all of whom were chugging beers as we headed towards the center of the city. At the much-awaited stop, we were swept out of the train to rush up the stairs and emerge from the station where, immediately upon us in all of its carnival beer filled glory, was Oktoberfest. Though we arrived at …

    After my return from the South Island, I got to meet Jeni, the new addition to the house in Wellington.  I was able to recount some of my stories and get caught on some of theirs.  I spent the better part of the next 2 days finding and packing all of my things...it is impressive how much and how far your things can spread in about 2 1/2 months in …

    Angela picked me up from my last day of work and took me to the Interisland Ferry to catch my ride to the South Island to begin my solo journey around the southern half of the country.  I had purchased my tickets with InterCity Buses, the Dolphin Encounter, and my ferry pass that I could change the dates of departure an unlimited number of times.  I left late on 28 …

    Talk about a fun-filled weekend...Andrea and I did it all!  More to come later...So I finally made it back to add to this poor journal, such a sorry piece for so long.  Anyway, what did we do in Rotorua?  Our first night there, we made it to the Mitai hangi and cultural performance that accompanies this.  The tour took us into the woods where we got to see one of …

    After weeks of planning and excitement, the moment of flying to Munich to experience the final days of Oktoberfest had finally arrived. Friday afternoon we headed out early to the Pisa Airport to ensure a seat on the plane and a hassle free trip to Germany with the infamously devious (yet cheap) airline Ryan Air. The plane wasn’t scheduled to depart until 6:30 yet we were ready to check in …

    (Ok, so to avoid confusion, we actually went to Liverpool on Friday 14th May.) Liverpool was fantastic. After being there a day, it tops my list of favorite cities only tying with Venice for number one. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- So the first thing we did in Liverpool, was a walking tour with one of the men who works in the International Office at Edge Hill. He had a lot of great information about the town …

    Saturday, Day 1: We finally got to sleep in and it was fantastic! Then Mimi, Steve and I went to get brunch. I think it was around 2 before we actually left Ormskirk for Liverpool. We went and hung out with Adam again for a good five hours. Unfortunately, it was raining for the majority of the day, so the weather kind of dampened our visit. While we were in Liverpool, …

    Today was our first real day touring with our guide Michael and bus driver Keith but from now on, I’m pretty sure we’ll be getting to know them pretty well because we’re going to be in a different hotel nearly every night.  On our drive to Inverness, I learned quite a few interesting facts from Michael: ·      University is free in Scotland. And one of the schools, Fettes College, Tony Blair and …
