I hope you all had a lovely Easter break. My Easter this year was definitely one of the most unforgettable ones! I travelled to Italy with my friends from Australia, India, England and South Korea. We have visited Milan, Verona, Venice (with Murano and Burano islands) and Florence. It is extremely hard to describe the entire trip. So many new people, experiences, places..We saw amongst other things the world famous La Scala opera house and Sforza Castle in Milan, Romeo and Juliet's balcony and Roman Arena in Verona. From Verona we travelled to one of the most romantic European cities...City of water, masks & bridges...Venice! Definitely one of my favourite places in the world. We saw there breathtaking Piazza San Marco (St. Marks Square) with truly unbelievable St. Mark's Basilica, took lots of pictures on the famous Venice's Rialto Bridge, visited Jewish ghetto & visited (widely known for its beautiful glass) Murano Island and little colourful Burano Island. In Florence one of the most memorable views was the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (The Florence Cathedral). The whole city of Florence is very charming. Last, but not least, we obviously enjoyed delicious Italian food and traditional glasses of prosecco! What a trip! memories and friends to cherish forever! Check out more photos from the trip in my album!
I obviously have to juggle travelling and social life with studying (all my modules are taught here at Master's level). In addition, I have signed up for a German course. I really want to improve my German language while I am in Switzerland. I have asked my German flatmate to speak with me only in German and I also go every week for a coffee with my Swiss friend who speaks with me in German, corrects me and improves my vocabulary. Erasmus definitely gives you a great possibility to work on your foreign language skills!
Best of luck with the revision! Speak to you soon.
