Ahh, new beginnings. Here we are, starting off the Spring 2012 semester abroad with big things happening around Europe in the Bus2alps world. Students from all over the place have been arriving in their new home cities, settling in, seeing the sites, meeting new friends, and soaking it all in. What’s one of the most exciting parts of this semester? Traveling!
In Rome, the Bus2alps crew has been out and about all week, meeting new students and helping them get acclimated in the Eternal City that they can now call home. We held a welcome event at club Gilda this past Friday night, giving away free trips to the Amalfi Coast, Interlaken, and Venice Carnevale. Three lucky winners were announced over the microphone by the DJ and the crowd went wild. Everyone then danced the night away (J.Lo style).
Over in Florence, the Bus2alps crew gave away a free Interlaken trip to Mike B. on the Bell Tower Pub Crawl. Pub crawl with new friends? And a free trip to the Swiss Alps? Mike B. is having the best week ever.
In Barcelona, the Bus2alps crew started the spring semester off right. Thursday night we teamed up with our friends at the Dow Jones Bar to throw a raucous welcome party filled with new faces, cheap drinks and free trips to the Amalfi Coast, Interlaken and the French Riviera. Come Saturday we were ready for our welcome bike tour. We cruised around the city with over 70 of our newest friends and gave away free trips to Montserrat and Greece along with discounted trips to Interlaken and the French Riviera before hitting Ryan’s bar for some post tour drinks.
