Hello everyone! I have created this blog so that my friends and family can read about my adventures in Europe. Whenever we miss each other we can visit this site to stay in contact. If you get a username with wordpress.com, you can comment on my entries and create tags.

My Travel Plans: I depart on March 19, 2009 and I will fly to London with my friends Joey and Paige. We will spend March 20th- 23rd in London. In the evening on the 23rd Joey, Paige and I will fly to Amsterdam. On the 29th, I will fly to Vienna. Paige will be studying in Rome and Joey in Tübingen, Germany. I will start taking German classes at the International Culture Institute in Vienna on April 1, 2009.

July 17, 2009 is my first day as the intern at the Palazzo Pio, the University of Washington’s campus in Rome. I will be working as the office assistant to the University staff and doing research for my honors thesis, which is due in Spring 2010. I will be in Rome until mid-July 2010. Come visit me if you can!
