Before alumnae, Rachel Murdy, ventured off on an adventure to Italy, she started a blog. Here are a few helpful points from her first blog on her first day in Italy.
1). Arriving in Amsterdam at 1AM our time and 8AM their time was a struggle, not only because that’s when Shannon and I started to get tired, but also because the sun literally never set for us until a couple hours ago. That sounds like science fiction to me!
2). The international flights were not nearly as complicated or stressful as I had anticipated. Dutch is an intriguing language, and KLM accommodated my food allergies, so I’m impressed.
3). Old people are hilarious. We sat next to a couple with lovely British accents on our way to Amsterdam, and the kept us laughing, especially when the husband was dancing down the aisle.
4). Jet lag is a very real struggle, as evidenced by :
a) Shannon’s temporary belief that the world is flat
b) My failure at the conveyer belt sidewalks (squeals included)
c) The rambling nature of this post. Mi dispiace.
