Farewell, Austria

June brought me many different emotions, a lot of goodbyes, and a lot of appreciation for the memories and lifelong friends that I now have. The last couple weeks of the semester were spent embracing every moment we had left in the study abroad world we had created, with the study abroad family that we… Read more »

Berlingieri Euro Trip

As my exchange semester came to an end, I said goodbye to my little study abroad life, and took on a new Europe journey with some family by my side. June 18th rolled around and I waited for the arrival of my cousin Brandon and my brother Nicolas to join me for a two-week Berlingieri… Read more »

I can’t say this enough times, but to be hugged, kissed, and fed again was a feeling like no other. Over the past couple of weeks, I had the opportunity to meet my Zia and Zio (Aunt and Uncle), my cousin, and her boyfriend for some visiting and touring in Italy and through Greece. The… Read more »

Vienna, Croatia, and More!

The month of May has provided me with a large range of emotions so far. I started off in a slightly darker place, where the anticipation of having to say goodbye to my little dog slowly set in. This was the hardest thing that I have had to experience since I arrived here in Austria…. Read more »

Two-Week Reflection

I have spent a lot of time these past couple of weeks just being a citizen of Wiener Neustadt, and a student at the University of Applied Sciences.

The majority of the past days spent have been outside, enjoying this unusually hot April weather. We even… Read more »

Easter break has officially come to an end, and over the past 11 days I have accumulated a million new memories, so much knowledge on the three countries I have visited, a couple new articles of clothing, smelly shoes, a dent in my bank account, and 457 new photos on my camera roll. I still… Read more »

Celebrating Easter

So, another two weeks have passed me by, and since my last blog, my emotions have been on a roller coaster, bringing me down and then all the way back up again. I was told coming into this that there will be good days and bad days, but be sure to take the best from… Read more »

Feeling Inspired

Alexandra Berlingieri

I did it, I made it through a whole month of being in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. The days pass by at what it seems to be a slow pace, but then when I look back, it has indeed been a whole month! So much has happened between arriving, getting settled in, finding routine, travelling, and… Read more »

Adventures in Budapest

Alexandra Berlingieri

Routine is finally setting in, and for those of you who know me personally, this is necessary for my survival. I like to have routine during the weeks, of course with a little bit of variety to spice things up. I had my first business class this week, yes only one because class schedules are… Read more »
