My Weekend in Krakow, Poland.

Wow. What a weekend. Valerie, Rachel, Lindsay and I traveled to Krakow, Poland. The 4 of us have always been very fascinated learning about the Holocaust and everything the people went through. We decided to take a trip to visit some of the sites that are now places to remember what happened.

For some reason, we had to fly from Milan to Rome, and then from Rome to Krakow. It makes no sense, but who knows. When we arrived in Krakow, we felt like royalty. Our hotel picked us up in a large (and fancy) Mercedez Benz van and took us straight to the hotel. We stayed at the Best Western Premier, and it was wonderful! The currency used in Poland is worth about 1/3 of the dollar, so we got a very nice hotel for what we paid. After settling in, we took a city bus to the city center to go find some food, and then we grabbed a taxi and set off towards Schindler’s factory.

Oscar Schindler owned a factory in Krakow. He was known as a hero from that time period because he saved thousands of people from persecution. His factory has been transformed into a museum. We took a tour through and learned so much. I loved the museum because it was very interactive and the way it was set up reminded me of an art exhibition. It was a wonderful experience. We were able to see photos of the workers and everything that was happening at the time. It was very cool to basically walk through the story of the factory during World War II. My opinion of Schindler was challenged after that day. While he was a hero for saving all those people, it seems that he wasn’t doing it deliberately. He was simply a businessman, and he needed people to work in his factory. Very interesting viewpoint.

That evening, we went to the Hard Rock Café for dinner. It was fabulous! The food was so so so so so good! And get this… I got free refills on my drink! That is seriously unheard of in Europe. We walked around the city center for a while and did some souvenir shopping. :) Our hotel also had a swimming pool, so Lindsay and I relaxed in the pool that evening. It was a perfect end to the day!

The next morning, we went to breakfast in our hotel and got ready for our big day. Friday night, we found a travel company and booked our tour to Auschwitz with them. We paid 100 zl (which is about $30) for transportation to Auschwitz, 3 hours between the 2 camps, and then transport back. It was a very good deal, especially for the experience.

Auschwitz is about a 1 and a half hour drive away from Krakow. When we arrived, all of the tour groups were really unorganized, but we found our guide and set off on our tour. Honestly, I don’t feel like I’m ready to talk about the whole experience yet. I saw so many things that I never expected to see in my entire life. We were taken through the Auschwitz and Birkneau concentration camps and were able to see many of the barracks, and even remains from a crematorium. We walked through buildings that the prisoners lived and died in, and saw many places on the grounds where people were murdered out in the open. The experience was very sobering, and it put a lot of things into perspective for me. Just thinking about this right now is sending chills over my entire body. I think that visiting these camps is something that everyone should do at some point in their lives. I don’t think I ever want to go back, but I am so thankful I had the opportunity to visit.

I have a few of the photos of my trip posted to Facebook. I am not ready to share the rest, and I probably won’t publicly on the Internet. If you would like to see what I did share, they are here:

Thank you for reading today. I will probably have only 1 or 2 more posts before I go home to the United States. Next Saturday is when we fly out!

Ciao!

Rome!

Okay, okay. It’s been a while, I know. Things have been absolutely crazy here! But this story is worth waiting a while for, I promise!

I was not able to upload photos to this blog, but I have my Rome photos on Facebook, so you can see them by looking here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10200991998628805.1073741826.1432005424&type=3

(Hopefully that link works.)

So last weekend, Johnny and I went to Rome. We left early Friday morning and came back late Monday night. IT WAS SO FREAKING AWESOME! I loved Rome so so so much! It was a very busy weekend, but it was a nice break from everything in Torino.

On Friday, we arrived in Rome around noon. We checked in at our hotel, and then made our way into town. We both just recently read Angels and Demons, so of course we had to see everything that was in the book! We managed to make it to 2 of the churches listed in that book. We went to the Chiesa Santa Maria Della Vittorio, and also to the Piazza del Popolo. We scoured the churches looking for Barberini’s artwork and were amazed when we found them. The churches were beautiful! Right by Piazza del Popolo, we found a gorgeous park and hung out there for a while. It was so tropical and beautiful and relaxing.

After enjoying our time at the park, we made our way to the Trevi fountain and the Spanish Steps. The Trevi Fountain was absolutely fantastic. There were hundreds of tourists just sitting around looking at it, and for good reason! It was magnificent. The Spanish Steps really were not that cool. I mean, they were kind of just a normal staircase. The view from the top wasn’t that spectacular either, so I wasn’t too impressed. The best part of the Spanish Steps was that I was able to buy 40 postcards for 2 euros. Seriously, the best deal of my life!

We spent the majority of Saturday in the Vatican City. We arrived early at St. Peter’s Square. We were going to do the museums first, but we decided to take Davide’s advice and save that for the afternoon. St. Peter’s Square is also in Angels and Demons, so we walked around and searched for all of the things mentioned in the book. Of course, the giant obelisk wasn’t hard to miss, but we managed to find all of the little things around it as well. St. Peter’s Basilica is HUGE. From the outside, it is beautiful and fits well with the pillars set up in an oval shape around it. We had to stand in line for about 45 minutes to get into the basilica, but it was completely worth it. I can’t even begin to describe how beautiful that church is. There was beautiful marble everywhere, along with fabulous paintings, statues, frescoes, etc. The place is huge, and we soaked up all we could. It was amazing! The entrance to the Vatican Grottoes is located inside the basilica, so we went down there when we were done looking around the church. We saw the tombs of most of the popes and some other important people. It was very cool!

After we were done in the basilica, we went and grabbed some lunch and then headed towards the Vatican Museums. They set up the museum so that if you want to see the Sistine Chapel, you have to walk all 7.5 Kilometers of museum stuff to get there. The museum was very cool, and there was soooooo much stuff. I couldn’t take in hardly any of it. So many paintings and statues. We eventually made it to the Sistine Chapel. It was breathtaking. Designed by Michelangelo, the ceilings and walls were covered with amazing frescoes. Pictures were forbidden, so I wasn’t able to take any. It was overwhelming in the best way.

After the museums, we headed to our next stop on our own Angels and Demons tour. The Castel St. Angelo. We didn’t go inside, but it was wonderful to look at! It was very large and impressive and very very well preserved! The bridge leading up to it was lined with angel statues.

Sunday, we went to explore all of the old Roman stuff. ;) Our first stop was the Colosseum. I’ve seen it in pictures and movies, but nothing can compare to seeing it in real life. The thing is amazing. When you’re walking around, it’s so incredible to think that you’re inside of a structure that was built 2,000 years ago. There are 3 levels still standing, and about half of the 4th. We went to the upper level and had the best view. We could not only see everything in the Colosseum, but also some of the surrounding areas. It was absolutely breathtaking.

Next, we headed to the Palatino and Roman Forum. The Palatino was pretty neat. It was a bunch of Remains of Roman houses and stuff in these beautiful gardens. The Roman Forum was much cooler, in my opinion. There wasn’t a lot left standing there, but it was amazing to see the things that were. I loved it!

Afterwards, we headed to the Pantheon. The architecture of that place is so strange, but so cool! There is a giant hole in the roof of the dome, so the building is filled with lots of natural light. It was very nice! We also visited Piazza Navona and the Capitoline Museums. Piazza Navona was a nice place to walk around and had some lovely Barberini fountains. We also saw a guy get arrested for selling fake Prada purses, so that was cool! We didn’t go inside the Capitoline Museums, but we saw the beautiful buildings and surrounding area. It was a great area. We hung out in the shade and people watched for quite a while there.

Monday was our last day in Rome. We didn’t have a lot of time, but Johnny and I managed to go to the Catacombs of San Callisto. We learned so much! It was very cool to see all of the tombs and learn the history behind them. Our tour guide even took us to a room where they have 2 tombs with bones and remains left in them. It was pretty gross, but cool to see. Our guide spoke perfect english, so that made the tour even more awesome. The catacombs were surrounded by a really nice park. It was very nice to get out of the hustle and bustle of the big city for the day.

On our train ride home, we spent the entire time finishing up our 10 page papers for Art History. I think they both turned out very nice. We both received good grades, so our teacher must have thought they were nice too! :)

Tomorrow, I leave for Poland with Valerie, Rachel and Lindsay. It will be my last trip of the semester, and I imagine it will be amazing! I can’t wait!

It’s April Already?

Okay, I know it’s been almost 2 weeks since I’ve posted. BUT. There’s been a lot going on, and I just really haven’t had the patience to sit down and do this. So here we go!
Last week, Johnny and I began planning our trip to Rome. We booked our Hotel and our train tickets and thought everything was good to go. We booked through TrenItalia. See, the way the website works is you click single/return and you give the stations and the dates. It shows you your ticket options and then you get to pick your tickets. Easy, right? Well. We picked our tickets, and when we got the email confirmation, something wasn’t quite right. We had purchased 2 tickets from Torino Porta Nuova to Roma Termini on April 12th, and 2 tickets from Roma Termini to Torino Porta Nuova on April 15th. TrenItalia decided to give us 4 tickets from Roma Termini to Torino Porta Nuova on April 15th. So they literally gave us the wrong tickets. We went to the train station to get them changed, but the people said it was impossible. They thought we had made the mistake.. But that is literally impossible with their system. So basically, we had to just call it a loss and buy new tickets to Rome.. There goes another 50 euros.. Oh well. We have our tickets now, and we’re going!
Because of the Easter Holiday, our school was closed on Friday and yesterday (Monday). On Friday, we decided to go visit La Venaria Reale. It is a beautiful palace/hunting lodge on the outskirts of Torino. Our museum passes got us in for free, so It was a no brainer! Everyone kept comparing the palace to Versailles before we got there, and when we arrived it wasn’t quite what we had expected. We learned a lot about the history of Torino, and saw a lot of beautiful rooms. Apparently, the palace sat for hundreds of years and people just came in and robbed everything, so there wasn’t much to look at inside. It was still pretty cool though!
On Easter, we decided to go hiking. We found this place called Sacre di San Michele, and it looked like a beautiful castle on a mountain. We jumped on a train Sunday morning and headed to a town that was about 30 minutes away. When we got there, we realized that we were a lot further away from the mountain than we thought. We had to walk 3 miles through the town to get to the foot of the mountain. By that time, we were all hungry, so we grabbed a quick lunch and started our hike. I didn’t realize how out of shape I was until we started that hike. Holy moly. It was very steep, and it was all cobblestones. Let me tell you, I have never hiked on worse terrain. Cobblestone path.. Really? Anyway, Rachel and I took our time up the mountain and fell behind everyone else. We had an awesome time and saw some gorgeous scenery. It really made me miss Colorado. We reached the top after about an hour and a half. We then met up with the rest of our group and went on a tour of the church/castle. It was very cool!

Since then, not much has happened. I finished reading Angels and Demons last week, so I am STOKED to go see everything in Rome. I started the Da Vinci code this week and I love it! Dan Brown really knows how to write thrilling stories!

Spring Break in Paris and London!

Spring Break rocked! This might take a lot of writing… just a heads up!

First, I would like to apologize for posting so late. I’ve been having a ton of issues with the internet this week, which has been very inconvenient. I was unable to post photos directly to this blog because of those issues, but I have them on my Facebook, so feel free to take a look!

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10200843356152836.1073741825.1432005424&type=3

(I hope that link works!)

Last Saturday, we hopped on a plane to Paris to begin our Spring Break adventure.

We were in Paris, France! We decided to use Saturday afternoon to see the Notre Dame Cathedral. It was magnificent. The church was ENORMOUS and I cannot even begin to describe what I saw. It is the definition of gothic architecture, and there were so many details on the building, I cannot even imagine the manpower that went into that thing. We went inside the church, and things were just as impressive from the inside. The arched ceilings were very high and large stained-glass windows let in just enough light. There were magnificent statues and reliefs throughout the entire cathedral. I was most impressed by the stained-glass windows. They were enormous, and very well preserved. The figures and patterns within them were so intricate and beautiful. We walked outside and around the cathedral in order to take in everything.

After our Visit to Notre Dame, we all were starving. We made our way to the one and only Chipotle in Paris. It was such a wonderful taste of home! Seriously. I love Chipotle! The burritos were much more expensive than they are in the States, but they were totally worth the price! After we were full and re-energized, we took the Metro to the Eiffel Tower. Since it was nighttime, the tower was lit up. It was beautiful! You grow up seeing pictures of the Eiffel tower everywhere, but you can’t really comprehend it until you’re standing there in front of it. The thing is massive, and a phenomenal piece of architecture.

Sunday, we visited the Palace of Versailles. Basically, it’s a ridiculously huge palace with miles and miles of gardens and more palaces. We spent about 6 hours at Versailles. We walked through the beautiful palace and made it to the back corner of the gardens. There, we saw a few more small palaces along with Marie Antoinette’s Estate.  I don’t even know where to begin describing Versailles. Everything was so ornate. I saw more gold and marble than anywhere else in my life. Even today, the trees and bushes were trimmed perfectly! After about 5 hours, we had seen just about everything we could bear to see and decided to catch a little tram back up to the top. We had easily walked 10 miles, and we didn’t want to have to spend another couple hours walking back up to the top!

When we left Versailles, we were all starving, so we stopped at a McDonald’s nearby for lunch, after hitting a few gift shops. Then, we made our way back into Paris to see the Arc de Triumphe. The Arc de Triumphe is at the very center of the city. There is a giant roundabout build around it and it branches off in almost every way. It’s hard to describe, but it was so cool! Apparently, you can climb up inside to get to the top of the Arc de Triumphe. We never knew about this, but we were able to do it for free with our Italian Permit to stay cards! The view from the top was breathtaking. We had a perfect view of Paris, and we had a wonderful view of the Eiffel Tower. After 7pm, the Eiffel Tower sparkles every few minutes, so we stayed up there for a while to watch it from a distance. Absolutely Marvelous.

Later that evening, we decided to treat ourselves to some Parisian cuisine. We went to a restaurant called Le Pachyderme. Since we were in Paris, we had to try Escargot. In case you didn’t know, that is snail. They were weird, but oddly good. Our main dishes were absolutely amazing. The food was exquisite, but very expensive, that was our one and only Parisian meal of the trip!

Monday, the weather was worse than the day before. It was cold and rainy. Thankfully, we planned to go to the Louvre that day. The Louvre is the world’s largest art museum. When we got there, we headed straight for the room that houses DaVinci’s Mona Lisa. It was very small. I have always imagined the Mona Lisa to be a large painting. In reality, it was probably about the size of 2 pieces of paper. Anyway, we went on to see tons of famous statues and paintings. We stayed at the Louvre for about 3 hours, but we were so tired and didn’t have the patience to stay any longer. Before we left for Paris, we had booked tickets to ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower this day. The weather was terrible, so we figured we might not be able to still do it. We headed there anyway, and stopped to see the REAL Statue of Liberty on the way. By the time we reached the Eiffel Tower, it was raining really hard. The people at the gate said we could go to the second floor, but not the top, since it was rainy and foggy. We were a little disappointed, but it was cool because we still were able to be on the Eiffel Tower!

Tuesday, we had planned to go to Disneyland Paris. However, that morning, it was snowing like crazy. Almost all of the Metro lines in Paris were shut down because of the weather. This meant we couldn’t get to Disneyland. Instead, we decided to visit the Moulin Rouge. It is a famous location, so we just wanted to say we had been there. We spend most of Tuesday relaxing in the hotel and trying to keep warm. We went out for dinner at a little place next to our hotel, and it was amazing food, and at a great price!

Wednesday, our flight to London was scheduled for 6:30pm. We still had Disneyland tickets that we didn’t want to waste, so we got up early and arrived right before the park opened. We had a solid 5 hours to spend between the 2 parks. Because of the weather the day before, a lot of the rides were closed. We still had fun and got to ride almost everything we had wanted to. We had a blast! We were running late so we had to rush to the Metro and then into the Airport. Luckily, there was no line for security, so we got to our gate just in time.

The flight to London was only 55 minutes. We took a bus from the airport to the center of London and then got lost for 2 hours trying to find our hotel. We finally found it and immediately went to bed. We were exhausted!

Thursday, we went sightseeing all over London. We saw the Kensington Gardens, Big Ben, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, and countless other beautiful sites. We decided to ride the London Eye before lunch. We had a stunning view of the city. It was absolutely amazing! Afterwards, we found a Subway and had lunch. We then headed over and saw Westminster Abbey, and eventually went to the British Museum. We were all very excited about this museum before Paris, but after Versailles and the Louvre, we were kind of Museum’d out. We made sure to see the Rosetta Stone, and then wandered around looking for other cool things. It was a great collection, but it all started looking the same after we spent so much time at the Louvre in Paris. For dinner, we found a pub and ate some fish and chips! We continued to walk around to see all of the sights by night. Everything was beautifully lit up!

Friday morning, we left our hotel and headed to King’s Cross Station. We used the Underground so we would not have to walk as much we did the previous day. King’s Cross is where the Hogwarts Express picks up students to Platform 9 ¾. We went in and found where the platform should be, but there was no sign there. The guards saw us walking around and pointed us in the right direction. The area dedicated to Platform 9 ¾ is actually not near the train platforms. It makes sense really, that they don’t want tourists running around and getting in the way. This was one of my FAVORITE parts of the trip. It was so cool!! I was on Harry Potter overload.

Afterwards, we went to Buckingham Palace to watch the changing of the guard ceremony. There were so many people there, so I wasn’t really able to see much, but it was still really cool being there when it was happening. It was a long and detailed process, but it was very cool. After lunch, we went to see the Tower Bridge. It is one of the biggest icons of London. The bridge was very large and impressive. I have never seen another one like it! Johnny and I then walked a couple blocks to the Design Museum. Most of the museum was actually closed because they were trying to set up new exhibitions, so we got a discount going in. It was really awesome. I learned a lot about little things in London and Europe. There are so many things that you never imagine how much work goes into. The weather was very cold and rainy this day too, so we spend the majority of the evening relaxing in our hotel.

Saturday was our last day on this vacation. We visited Stonehenge. It is about 2 hours outside of London. Stonehenge is very strange to me, because no one really knows that much about it. It was very interesting to see, along with hearing the history behind it. This trip took up almost the entire day. When we got back to London, we went and saw all of the top sites at night one last time.

Sunday morning, our flight left at 7:40am from London. We arrived back in Torino and it was snowing. We came back to our apartment, grabbed lunch from the Turkish Kebap place down the street and took some nice long naps.

Even with all of the stress, money, and poor weather, this Spring Break is the best one I have ever had. I don’t know if anything really will be able to top it. I enjoyed every day spent in Paris and London, but for now, I’m ready to relax and lay low for a while here in Torino, Italy.

Ready for the Break.

Well, it’s been a while. I haven’t been too consistent with this whole blogging thing. The past week has been very stressful. Last week, the school planned our Spring Break trip, finally. Super last minute, right? Welcome to Italy. Anyways, after all the stress, we got it all figured out. We are going to Paris and London from the 9th-17th of March. We’ll be in each city for 4 days. I cannot wait! In Paris, we are going to go to Disneyland!!! Also, we’re going to Chipotle. FINALLY! We are going to so many places and going to see so many beautiful things. I never thought I would have this experience in my life, but since I have it, I decided to jump on it. I wish I had more to say, but all of the cool stuff will come after the trip. :)

Besides the Spring Break stuff, we have been busy getting prepared for our midterms. For me personally, I didn’t have to do very much. I’m not all for studying for hours on end into the night anyway, so it was okay. I am done with midterms for the week, so no more worries!

Tomorrow, Johnny, Korby, Valerie, and I have to go to the Immigration office. Again. We are FINALLY getting our Permit to Stay cards. It only took 2 months for us to be here legally.. ;) Rachel got hers last week and said she had to wait in line for 3 hours, so I’m sure it will be a thrilling experience.

Besides doing laundry and packing for the trip, there isn’t much else going on this week. I know that we are all burnt out and ready for the break (as any college student would be). I promise I’ll write all about Spring Break when we get back! :)

Ciao ciao!

Museums, Museums, and More Museums!

This week in Italia, we all got our fill of museums for a while. On Thursday after class, Kaci and I made our way over to the Museo Egizio (Egypt Museum). We went there for our Art History class a few weeks ago, but we wanted to go and explore on our own. That museum is phenomenal! To start, it is the 2nd largest Egyptian museum in the world (the first is in Cairo), and it is a wonderful collection of artifacts. You could spend hours looking at all of the things in there! My favorite is seeing the unwrapped mummies. The Egyptians were brilliant when it came to mummification (and everything else, really).

IMG_0855 IMG_0867 IMG_0875 IMG_0893 IMG_0906

Friday, a few of us went to the Oriental Art Museum. They had ancient and more recent art from all of the Asian countries. The museum was broken up into sections with the different countries, so every time you went to a new one, you felt like you were in a completely different world. My favorites were the Chinese, Japanese, and Islamic countries. The eastern art is so much different than anything that I am used to seeing here in Italy and even in America. For all of the art, they did not have descriptions written in English, so it was a little hard to understand everything.

Saturday, Johnny and I went to the Contemporary Art Museum. It was… interesting. Some of the pieces in the museum were absolutely beautiful. Others, I questioned how they were even art. I saw one piece that was a piece of white cloth that was framed. Literally a blank white cloth. However, I saw an original Andy Warhol print and it was wonderful. I really enjoy his work, so it was really cool to see an original right there on the wall in front of me!

Sunday was very cold and snowy, so we all decided to go to yet another museum. We went to the Palazza Madama, which was the Queen’s Palace. This museum was gigantic. All of the things within the museum were so exquisite. It was fun to imagine what life was like hundreds of years ago for the Queen. Not only were the artifacts cool, the palace itself was gorgeous. There were paintings on almost every ceiling, statues and reliefs along all of the walls and hallways, and the most beautiful architectural design imaginable. There were several rooms that had so much stuff in them to look at; you could probably spend a few days in there. We learned a lot and had a total blast!

This upcoming week is midterm week, so everyone here seems a little tense. I am not too worried, but we’ll see what happens. Midterms are 40% of your grade and the Final exam is 60%, so I guess we all should study and get prepared for those.

Until next time,

Ciao!
