Hi, my name is Maegan!
This blog is about the amazing opportunity I got to cross Italy off my bucket list. I am a student at Centennial College studying a three-year Business Entrepreneurship coop program. On August 20- September 3, a group of 18 students went on a journey together to Italy for two weeks.
We stayed in Urbania, Italy for the two weeks, once we got there we got to find out who was our room mates and Italian parents for the rest of the trip.
The next day was school Centro Studi Italiani; where we learned Italian for 2 hours a day, all the teacher were very nice and helpful. It was a great idea to learn the basics of the Italian language to help with traveling on our own throughout the trip.
I really wanted to experience the food in Italy, here are a couple of items I really enjoyed.
We ate gelato every day and ate from the supermarkets.
–>What I learned about Italy is Itanians love pasta, wine, they need to be bussed through a door to get into banks and they take naps in the middle of the day.
In Urbania, Italy we had a Wine Tasting, Cooking class, and Ceramics class.
We had one day in Urbano, Gabbio, Florence, Venice and Slept over in Rome:
My Favorite part of the trip was Venice and Florence I always wanted to go there!
In conclusion; this global experience was amazing and I will never forget the summer I spent getting to know Centennial College students from all different campuses and learning the Italian culture!
