As some of you may know, Matt, Jessica, Jennifer and I will be spending a few days in Rome before we come to Zurich to begin the Global Perspectives program. We have already booked a hostel and earlier this week I booked the train tickets from Rome to Zurich. We will be leaving Rome the night of 5/19 and be arriving in Zurich around 11AM the next day. We are all very excited and cannot wait for the program to begin!
I booked my flight for Global Perspectives today. Here is my rough outline for those of you interested in going to Rome before our group travels.
Tuesday May 15: Fly out of Chicago. Transfer in NYC. Land in Rome on Wednesday May 16th at 10AM (Rome time).
May 16th – May 19th : Explore Rome
May 20th : Train to Zurich (7AM train leaves, arrives in Zurich around noon).
May 20 – May 31st: Global Perspectives
May 31st – Leave Lugano Switzerland. Go to Montpellier France via train.
June 3rd – Leave Montpellier for Paris via train.
June 7th – Fly out of Paris for Chicago around noon.
Let me know if you are interested in going to Rome with me. My France travels after Global Perspectives are to see personal friends and maybe with a close friend.
As Dean DePauw as alluded to in our meetings, I was born in Sweden. However, last year I became an American citizen. It was a very happy occasion for me and my family. Recently I received my first United States passport, and its first use will be on our Global Perspectives trip. I am incredibly excited to go and cannot wait to see Italy and Switzerland and to meet our colleagues from Lund and Basel!
For my first post I just want to say hi! I am excited to go on the Global Perspectives trip with all of you. If you are interested in learning more about me, click the ‘About-Me’ link at the top.
Looking forward to knowing you all better!
