Celebrating holidays overseas is a rite of passage for those studying abroad. In this week's post, Connor tells us how he spent Thanksgiving in Florence and felt at home with his classmates who shared this experience—with the help of CAPA and a very special dinner!

Spending Thanksgiving while studying abroad can be bittersweet. On one hand, I missed being with my family and the traditions we have for Thanksgiving, but on the other hand I had the opportunity to spend this special day in a unique way. Despite not being with my family, I realized how lucky I was to be able to spend this special holiday in Florence with the amazing people that I have met here.

Cultural Tastes: 5 Stops on a Diverse Culinary Tour Through London

Oct 29, 2018 11:13:55 AM / by Genevieve Rice

In this week's post, Genevieve discusses the cultural variety of cuisine that she's discovered since moving to London. From British Pub food and Russian Cafes to Indian curries and vegan falafel stands, she shares 5 of her go-to places for food in London.

Comfort food is something that all students in college become acquainted with. Whether that means the gooey cheese on a pizza or hot broth of chicken noodle soup, those two words bring certain food to mind. Food is universally unique, each culture adapting ingredients to fit their tastes. Comfort food is especially important to me when I am far from home. A whiff of the aroma of baking bread and I immediately feel at peace in my surroundings, whether or not they are familiar. However, I am not prefacing this blog post with comfort food to say that it is important for study abroad students. While it is interesting how students bring their food with them, it is even more fascinating to see the all of the food that London has to offer. London is aptly described as a global city. Layers of culture overlap as immigrants from all over the globe come together in one city. Each cultural group carries their history and traditions in the food that they eat and crave when they are far from home. I have never been in a city that so obviously displays the importance of food and culture as London. On my street alone, there is a Russian café, a British pub, a Chinese street food stall, a fish and chips shop, a middle eastern style market place, multiple Ethiopian, Indian, Japanese, and Thai restaurants, and even a fancy Nepali place. When people move to London, they are not required to sacrifice their cultural identity. Acculturation does not stifle this city as it does other countries. From the curry of Brick Lane to the Doner Kebabs on each street corner, culture and food are linked in this city.

10 Affordable Snacks to Indulge in While in Sydney

Oct 10, 2018 11:30:00 AM / by Martyn Megaloudis

In this week's post, Martyn gives us the run down on his favorite indulge-worthy snacks he's discovered while living in Sydney for the past month. 

Let’s be honest here...I don’t know how to cook, or rather I just don't cook for whatever reason (reason: I’m lazy). I bought a multi-grain box of spaghetti the second day that I got to Sydney and have yet to open the box. It’s still in my cabinet next to an empty blueberry muffin box...which brings us to this week’s topic. I figured I’d share my top ten lists of cheap snacks that you can get in and around Ultimo but more specifically the one and only Cole’s. Obviously since I’m studying abroad I wanted to find ten items that were both cheap (under or around 5 AUD) and that are easy to eat and take with you to go.
