I am officially back home from Italy and have been in recovery mode since Sunday! After a month of going nonstop with a group of 50 people it sure feels nice to sit quietly in my house and read a good book.
Our last few days in Italy were spent by the beach in Ostia finishing up the last of our assignments and getting just a little bit tanner. On the night before our 24 hour travel adventure, we all pulled together our nicest outfits and had one last dinner as the big family we had become. Before dinner started the director and one of the other students put on KIIS’s (Kentucky Institute of International Study) first awards ceremony. It was so much fun to see people get recognized for the things that they had become known for throughout the trip. I am proud to say that my friend Jackie (in the black dress and pearls pictured above) an I won “most fashionable without even trying!”
Unfortunately it was hard to find the time, energy and WIFI to blog frequently throughout the trip, but soon I will post a round-up blog with some pictures of the incredible places I was able to visit thanks to this study abroad program. If it is something you’ve ever thought about doing, I say jump in with both feet and doing look back. You won’t regret it!
