Sorry for the lack of updates recently. I've been keeping busy traveling to the far corners of Europe before... well, before I have to return to the States (but we're not going to think about that for another three weeks).

These four months have gone by so quickly it's unbelievable! I remember coming into my freshman year at Bucknell and thinking "I'm going to Italy junior year; God, I can't wait!" And now all of a sudden it's time to say goodbye to something that I've looked forward to for years. It's been extremely difficult to know that these months are coming to an end, but it's wonderful to also know that everything I've done this semester has been an incredible experience and I would do it all again if I had the opportunity.
