Assisi: St. Francis' Fertile Fields

The golden glow of the pastoral Tuscan countryside had lulled us into a stupor from which our tour guide had so rudely awakened us. He announced that we were taking a stop outside Assisi for lunch, claiming it would be more “authentic” than what we had seen so far, but the rural, fog-shrouded hills seemed uncharacteristic of our conception of Italy. As we swerved along the dirt roads, simple and solemn farmhouses stood to greet us.

South River Girls Soccer Takes Italy

If you ever have the opportunity to travel to Italy, I highly recommend taking the time to explore the beautiful cities that litter the Tuscan landscape. I had the pleasure of traveling with 25 other girls to 5 wonderful cities in Italy this summer.

Traveling through tourist sites like Piza and Florence, and leisurely exploring quaint towns like Luca and Sienna, have impressed upon me memories that will last a lifetime. Not only did I get to explore cities, I also was fortunate enough to get to experience the competition of Italian soccer; getting to play six games total.

Across the Pond in Ten Amazing Days

Buongiorno,  je m’appelle Jessie.  Wait. What I mean to say is, hello, I’m Jessie.  I guess you could say I’m having trouble reverting back to speaking English after spending ten glorious days in Europe this summer.  Over the period of ten days, I traveled with a group of 40 students from my school to four European cities: London, Paris, Florence, and Rome.  They didn’t tell me when I applied to go on this trip that you would be lucky to get seven hours of sleep most nights.  But who wants sleep when you can be out exploring the foreign nations?

The Eiffel Tower When She Glitters

There sat steak and custard alongside bottles of soda and cups of coffee. And, of course the customary dish of snails that looked like little hills all grouped together in a lake of garlic. The white linen was now stained with wine and butter. The din of conversation rose above the lowly lit, colorful chandeliers in the chic Parisian restaurant where I found myself in the spring of my freshman year of high school.

Friends, Italy, and Their Mutual Beauty

My dad and I had decided to stay behind an extra day. His travel points got us a free hotel in Rome and we slept in style. The wide soft bed was certainly nice after a week’s worth of budget inns complete with a limited hot water supply; however, what was lacking in our five star accommodations became immediately noticeable: the friends I had made over the one week excursion were on their way over the Atlantic and I had but the comfort of an extremely tasty breakfast.
