“Guuuurrrrrg-oOooh-LooOooL!” You hear that? That’s the sound of my belly cuz I’m hungry. I’m hungry for more delicious, authentic food and free trip giveaways! That was basically the theme this past week in Florence, Rome, and Barcelona…
In Florence, almost a hundred students joined the Bus2alps crew in a huge Welcome Dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in town, Osteria Del Gatto e la Volpe. Penne alla vodka, gnocchi, ravioli truffles, red and white wine, and a free trip to Prague were all on the menu. Congrats to Cody S. for winning the trip & also to everyone else who won free month gym memberships as well. Later on in the week, free coffee days were held at Astor Cafe and Mama’s Bakery, sponsored by Bus2alps of course.
Over in the Eternal City, the Bus2alps crew took a group to Tony’s restaurant in Trastevere to indulge in some fine Italian cuisine and talk about our travel plans for this semester. Post-dinner dessert shots were had at our favorite chocolate bar down the road and it was a big hit with our new Roman student friends. At the Drunken Ship, free trips were given away on both Monday and Friday night, leaving a few lucky students giddy with exuberance.
I smell sushi and soy sauce. The Barcelona crew teamed up with the De Lis group to host our official spring semester Welcome Party at the Shoko Beach Club. The free sushi made for a great night of getting to know our guests and the open bar led to a wild night of partying with them. We’ll continue to ring in the spring semester this Tuesday with the kick off of our weekly beer pong tournament at the George Payne Pub. Everyone will get the chance to drink some beer and heckle their opponents but only the winners will receive 50% off a Bus2alps trip.
With over a hundred students joining us in Interlaken this past weekend, we kicked off the semester with a bang. Five feet of fresh powder in the Jungfrau Region left skiers, snowboarders, and sledders grinning like school children. We had an absolute blast with everyone and we’re hungry for more great memories to be had in the weeks to come!
