Post-Program Reflection

I have been home for a few weeks now, and have had plenty of time to readjust to being home, as well as reflect upon my experiences from study abroad. I think the thing that surprised me the most about my study abroad experience was not only how much I enjoyed it, but also how…

Arriving home

It’s hard to believe that the summer is over and I have returned home from an amazing trip abroad. I have been able to travel to some great countries including France, Ireland, England and Iceland and have learned some great skills from my internship and I wish it didn’t have to end yet because there…

Rob Dolce IIP Berlin Final Post

Since I couldn’t find my 10th blog post from this program, I suppose I will rewrite it, but this time with the context of being home and a few weeks removed from the program and my experience abroad. First off, I think I speak for everyone in my group when I say that we were…

Reflection

Goodbyes

My time in Ireland is coming to a close and I’m both excited and sad. I’m eager to be home for a few days before school and see my friends. I have so many adventures to tell them about! On the other hand, I am sad those adventures are ending. My study abroad experience was…

Contrasting My Travels

This past weekend I had the opportunity to travel to the city of lights- Paris. I was absolutely blown away by the architecture, food, and the rich history of this city. All of the buildings and restaurants we encountered had a sense of elegance about them that I haven’t experienced before. On our trip we…

homeward bound

As this summer and my time in Ireland come to an end, I have time to reflect on my internship and my entire abroad experience. I have had an amazing time this summer and don’t think I would change anything (except maybe the amount of sun that Ireland gets.) I got great hands-on experience through my internship…

Back from Berlin

My study abroad trip has come to an end. Looking back, I have no regrets going to Berlin and the trip was so amazing that I plan to study abroad again next summer. What surprised me most about studying abroad was how cheap travel was once you reach Europe from the US. I wish I…

Last Week in Dublin

This week I am going to continue my discussion on Meetingsbooker.com, and further analyze the components that keep the company moving forward. First off, Meetingsbooker’s organization culture is extremely relaxed.  There are no cubicles or desks- rather just a few large tables with people stationed around them.  This office layout allows for easy communication and…
