Much as been written about the quest for the holy grail. One theory is that the cup used at the last supper was removed from Rome and hidden in the Cathedral of Valencia. Researchers have confirmed that the agate cup dates from the Roman period at the time of Christ. Whether real or not, it is an impressive sight, hidden in an alcove of the cathedral.
Just one short week before I leave for Valencia and the INTED conference. I have a long layover in Paris Saturday, so my plan is to take a train into the city and walk by river, see Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower. Will be updating my blog along the way, so stay tuned!
Welcome 2014 and welcome to a new chapter of The Professor and Her Passport.
This should prove to be an exciting year of travel. Next month, a quick trip to Green Bay, Wisconsin, is booked (no passport needed). But in March, I travel to Valencia, Spain to present some of my research at the INTED 2014 conference. Very excited. Never been to Spain, but am very open to new adventures and making new friends.
In May I will be leading a group of college students on a study abroad trip to Tuscany where we will spend six days on bikes learning about cultural fluency and immersing ourselves in the sites and flavors of Italy.
Look for lots of photos!
This is a video I made after my first trip to Istanbul in October 2011. Istanbul is an amazing city, filled with contrasts and contradictions. If you have been there, you understand. If you haven’t walked its cobble stoned streets, you are missing a great experience. The people are warm and welcoming; the food is beyond amazing.
