Six weeks. Six locations. Two classes.
No time for Netflix or YouTube, but plenty of time for pasta, gelato, and sunning on the terrace.
When I signed up for the UNH-in-Italy trip to Ascoli Piceno, I did not quite know what to expect. Soon I learned that we would start by spending two days in Venice, head to San Martino in the Alps for three days, and then settle in Ascoli Piceno, a “small” city in Italy (population about 60,000) where we would take classes on nutrition, culture, and the Italian language. It was impossible to resist once I knew what I would be signing up for.
On top of all this, there is even time to travel on the weekends to places like Rome, the Amalfi coast, and Florence. It seems like we barely have time for classes amongst the traveling and fun we have been enjoying. My Mediterranean Diet and Culture and Italian 401 classes meet for 1.5 hours a day four days a week and only for four weeks. With field trips included, lecture time is kept to a minimum. Fortunately, I am a visual learner and experiencing the bustling world around me allows for an even better understanding of the culture, nutrition, and language of Italy.
