Good morning Sorrento! After an impressive breakfast buffet at the Sister Hostel, the “Hofstra Romans” strolled down to the port to board the ferry. There were many other Bus2Alps guides and students there, but our day was special because after the ferry, we were getting on our own private tour boat. Did I mention where… Continue reading Back to Rome: Weekend Trip to Sorrento Day 2

Good Eats: Fort Lauderdale

Something I believe in is that a good vacay requires good food. Luckily, I can always count on my dad to find the juiciest steaks, freshest seafood and best sushi joints around, and our trip to Fort Lauderdale was no different. For three nights and three and a half days, my dad and I found… Continue reading Good Eats: Fort Lauderdale

Feeling 22

I never thought turning 22 in America could beat turning 21 in Australia, but it may have happened. How? Well, as I mentioned in my “21” post last year, I am one of the luckiest girls in the world because I have some of the best friends (and family) around. Despite the birthday night out… Continue reading Feeling 22
