To say I had to pack light for Milan is an understatement. Not only was there a limit on the size of your carry on, but a weight limit as well (20 pounds ladies....). Checking a bag was out of the question because 1. it was 50 euros, and 2. that is just not practical for a weekend trip. Of course, to my astounding luck, they ended up not even weighing our bags! 

I decided to make two outfits out of one bottom. Technically both outfits can be considered day outfits since the night outfit is more casual. We ended up sitting outside at a marvelous restaurant, Stendhals. This outfit kept me covered and cool at the same time in the 80+ degree weather in Milan. It was fun and playful (see Lauren twirling like a 5 year old above).

This weekend I traveled to Milan with three great girls who are studying abroad with me as well. Katie (Trendy Travelista), Megan (All Legs Meg); and Natalie! This was not a planned trip with our program. We had a free weekend and said, "Let's go to Milan!". We stayed at the beautiful AC Hotel Mariott in Milan, just a few minutes from the center. Being in Milan is surreal, and the language there is absolutely beautiful. There are some creepy parts about it, like men hustling you near the Duomo, but the juice was definitely worth the squeeze. A relaxing weekend all of us girls needed!

I spent the past weekend in Bath and Wales, both of which are in the UK if you did not know! Everyone currently studying at the FSU study centre in London was invited to come along. 

 Today we ventured through the Stourhead Gardens, as well as the magnificent Stonehenge. I  have yet to decide which was more spectacular. There was the beauty and serenity of the lush gardens and old stone buildings, caves, and bridges. Then there was the mystery, and pure awesome-ness, of seeing Stonehenge in person. I mean come on, one of the seven wonders of the world people! I also had the most amazing meal on this trip during lunch at the gardens. Overall the trip was an extremely great change of pace compared to the constant on-the-go chaos we have been enduring. 

Other activities included visiting the Roman Bath's, which silly old me did not take pictures of! We also had a tour of Chepsaw and an old Abbey in Wales. 

Stay tuned :)
