Italy, Greece, Morocco… Oh my!

It’s safe to say that I am the worst at keeping a blog. I actually decided to give up on it because I am so bad about writing entries and making time for it, but some people have recently asked me to do a photo blog, so this is my attempt at posting photos of my journeys throughout Europe and Africa. In the last month, fellow classmates and I have studied and worked so hard to prepare for Spring Tour. Finally, midterms were over and thus began our 2 and a half week tour throughout Italy and Greece. We visited over 24 cities, including: Padua, Ravenna, Florence, Assisi, Rome, Pompeii, Monte Cassino, Pimonte, Vesuvius, Bari, Patras, Igoumenitsa, Kalambaka, Delphi, Itea, Arachova, Nafplio, Corinth, Epidauros, Mycenae, Athens, Olympia, Patras, and Venice. After Venice, we drove to Padua and stayed the night. We finished up tour in Padua and headed back to Austria. In the same day I was in Italy, Austria, and Munich. I had taken the train from Salzburg to München to stay overnight since my flight to Marrakech was so early and proceeded to travel to Madrid for a layover and then Marrakech by the afternoon. In a matter of 24 hours I had traveled through 5 countries and 2 continents. You could say I was a bit tired, but it was worth it all. I spent the next four days in Marrakech, exploring with my friends Laila and Jenny. I am going to write another post about all of my Moroccan adventures later, but for now I want to post pictures of Italy and Greece. Here are some pictures to guide you through my adventure:
