oh the places you go
I figured I would only be abroad very few times in my lifetime and I wanted to make sure I got the most out of my experience. I traveled somewhere every single weekend, mostly throughout Italy, but 3 times to different countries. I am very happy with what I got to see and even had some unexpected places I went to. The only downside to traveling every weekend is that I did not really get to experience Florence as much and see everything to see there. SAI helped out more in the beginning and became harder to get a hold of as the semester went on but for the most part they were very helpful. What I liked about them was that they provided free excursions throughout the semester. My favorite one was Milan/Lake Como trip which was a weekend trip and they provided the hotel, some meals, transportation, and we even got to see "The Last Supper" and did not find that out till we were about to go in and see it. The school FUA was a decent school. The library and computer labs could have been accessible more hours during the week and weekend. The teachers were very friendly though and most were willing to help. The classes were taught in English but some of the teachers had a very strong accent, which is to be expected. Overall my experience was amazing and I would go back and do it again.
