you’ll know that their education is very light.
You go to class for about 10 weeks, and are finished by the end of March.Well, study abroad runs until the end of May, so what do you expect we do until then?
Travel – did I need to tell you that?
We did a ‘mini backpack adventures’ for about 3 weeks in April,
and one of our mid-way stoops was Cinque Terre, Italy.
The only way I can really describe this place is an exact replica
of the photoshop paradise postcards you see in the grocery story.
And yes – it is better than anywhere else.
And of course gelato.
But we stopped in every city for gelato.
When you’re in Italy, five gelattos is normal.
I wouldn’t recommend this city enough.

Hi readers! I’m Caity, blogging over at Where The Heart Is
and currently co-hosting Travel Tuesday with these lovely ladies.I’m currently figuring out life in London, but I blog about that enough on my own page.
———————————————————————–One of the first European adventures I took was during our ‘independent study’ week,
Next week will be our next themed Travel Tuesday. One of our amazing co-hosts, Caity, has chosen:
“Where You Came From & Why You Left”
Next week you can share a bit about yourselves through where you come from and what you love about it. Then also share what prompted your decision to leave, travel, move, whatever it may be!
We look forward to reading and sharing your posts next week!
Have you ever put in any thought that your personality could be pointing you to a specific location on the globe? As a nomadic child by birth and with the label now as a Third Culture Kid, I do not find one specific place my ‘home’. I instead take all the places I have ever lived or spent a significant part of my life and hold ownership in them. Before I knew what a Third Culture Kid, or TCK, was I used to say I was from ‘no where’ and now as an Adult TCK, or ATCK, I say I am from ‘everywhere’. Still I wish there was some place that we all without homes could feel at home. Though my quick answer to that has always been the airport. A place of comfort. Then I stumbled upon this website that took your Myers Briggs personality type and paired it up with one place on the globe. Of course I had to know where I was destined.
I had previously taken the the personality quiz in University back in 2001 and then had taken it again 2013 for my Blogtober post, both times getting ENFP.
As I scrolled down for answers I started getting sad that I was not getting the other cities I was seeing listed. My personality type ended up being at the end and as I drew close I was actually dreading what would be there waiting for me. What could be left? That sounds really silly, but it shows how much I was holding on to this personality matched with a city idea.
ENFP – San Francisco, USA
“ENFPs barf rainbows. San Francisco barfs rainbows. It’s a perfect fit. But in all seriousness, the liberal values of San Francisco have been attracting NF types for decades. Known for its hippy-dippy attitude and intellectual focus alike, the city is a perfect fit for the idealistic, liberally minded ENFP. This type enjoys exploring numerous avenues of self-expression and personal growth, which San Francisco provides ample opportunity for. This buzzing, vibrant city mirrors the attitude of the effervescent ENFP in almost every way possible.”
After reading about ENFPs in San Francisco I felt very happy to get this as my answer. Yes, it was found on the mainland USA and not Hawaii, somewhere in Europe, or a place I had yet to be in perhaps Asia. It was quite fitting with my personality. Not to mention I do love San Francisco and had lived not to far away in Monterey for a couple of years with our first born as a baby when my husband was in the military. If I was to move back to the USA it would have to be the west coast all the way.
How about you? Have you taken the Myers Briggs personality type test yet? What are you and where should you live?

Hello everyone and welcome to Travel Tuesday! My name is Amanda and I blog over at Rhyme & Ribbons. You can also find me on Instagram. In the fall, I was lucky enough to travel a bit through the Cotswolds, and I’d like to present a small picture of the area to you today!
The Cotswolds are a famously beautiful part of England, and the village of Bourton on the Water is no exception. (It’s even an official “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”.) I happened to arrive in the town just as they were starting their Remembrance Day ceremony.
The area is also famous for it’s predominantly stone homes. These beautiful villages were built in the time when English wool was king and they were racking in the big bucks. Bourton on the Water has about 4,000 inhabitants and is therefore considered a “larger” village for the area. It has a really picturesque High Street with the River Windrush running alongside it. Maybe I wouldn’t have loved living there as a teenager, but I’d certainly love to live there now!
Also if you are obsessed with “Buffy” or “Angel” like I am, you might recognise the area from an episode of “Angel” called “A Hole in the World” where Spike and Angel are looking for, predictably, an ancient demon in order to save Fred.
Have you traveled through the Cotswolds before?
Hello everyone and welcome to Travel Tuesday! My name is Amanda and I blog over at Rhyme & Ribbons. I’m originally from America, but I live in London now. Spring is in the air and I thought I’d introduce you to one of the blogging epicentres in London: Columbia Road Flower Market. It’s a combination of all things twee: puppies, vintage clothing and furniture, artisan pastries, babies, bicycles and most importantly lots and lots of flowers. I love every minute of it.
I like Lyn’s post on Chile!
