First Week in Review Fall 2011

The past week with Bus2alps can be summed up in one simple phrase: FUN in the SUN. With clear blue skies, temps in the 90s, and friends by our sides, perfect for our first major weekend of trips and events!

Sunshine met over 250 Bus2alps guests in the Amalfi Coast, Cinque Terre, Naples, and for the thousands more studying in Florence, Rome, and Barcelona. The wonderful weather made our boat tours around Capri and off the coast of Positano, our visit to the Blue Grotto, and our day on the beach all the more incredible. The trip was capped off on the rooftop of Seven where a Bus2alps guest beat an Italian in a dance off!

On Saturday morning, a group of students departed Rome to spend the day exploring the historic city of Naples. Many headed to L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele, made famous by the movie Eat, Pray, Love. Why not? Naples is the birthplace of pizza. Sunday was spent in Cinque Terre, a place many of our guests considering it one of the most beautiful places they had ever seen. It was nice to get out in the wilderness, get some physical activity, and then relax on the beach.

Over in Spain, Bus2alps Barcelona kicked off the new school year with big time events in the Catalan capital. B2A BCN took advantage of the lingering summer sun with a big beach volleyball outing, starting up a running team, and organizing a bike tour of the city.

This past Sunday also kicked off the NFL season. Bus2alps gathered at Astor Café (Florence) and George Payne’s (Barcelona) to celebrate the NFL season not being locked out. Free trips were given away to Ireland and Oktoberfest for those who could pick the most winners of the NFL Football games.

So now that everyone has a good tan and amazing pictures to show off to their friends and family back home, Bus2alps is really excited to keep it going! We’ll be leading trips back to Amalfi Coast this upcoming weekend, along with a trip to the beautiful beaches of Croatia and the energetic bier tents of Oktoberfest. See you on the bus!
