So the first half of the Fall semester has more or less wrapped itself up. Beach time is winding down (with the exceptions of the upcoming Croatia and Greece beach trips), and the sun has set on some great trips to Amalfi Coast, French Rivieria, Cinque Terre, and the rocking Oktoberfest. Our last featured blogger for this half of the best four month of your life comes from the blog, Beatrice in Italia. The blog has been cut down a bit from its original form. You can check out more of her experience and the full blog entry here.
Thursday evening around 7:30pm my roommates, Jessica, Lauren and I headed to the train station where we met our trip leader from Bus2Alps. Getting there nice and early, we scored some pretty sweet seats on the bus, which is prime considering the bus trip was 7 hours long. Yes, the joys of traveling as a poor college students. But after all the bus trips I’ve taken in Italy, I’m starting bear them a little more.
My roommates and I booked our trip with Bus2Alps, which was great because they took care of all the accommodations, traveling, and activities which makes EVERYTHING so much easier because you don’t look like the American trying to speak Italian at the train station trying to pick the CORRECT train to where you would like to go.
The hostel we stayed at was actually really really nice. It had this beautiful roof top terrace that had the most amazing views.
After grabbing lunch a boat waited for us at the dock and we managed to get seats right at the tip of it. (They weren’t quite seats but nothing blocked our view, who could ask for more) First stop: CLIFF JUMPING!…Best experience yet. As you fall, you think you will hit the water much faster than you do. Its the craziest thing. I felt as if I could do anything after that.
Second Stop: CAVE SWIMMING!. It was incredible. (enough said)
