In Florence, The Art of Travel Fall 2016, Thanksgiving by HarryLeave a Comment

Thanksgiving this year was probably one of the greatest ones I’ve had in my life, and not just because we had a Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday and on Friday. I won’t lie though, that totally helped. One of things that made this Thanksgiving so unexpectedly great was just that, it was unexpected. This classic American holiday really didn’t enter my …

Be the tourist you wish to see in the world

In Buenos Aires, The Art of Travel Fall 2016, Thanksgiving by Hashmita1 Comment

I’d been looking forward to Thanksgiving break even before my semester in Buenos Aires began. Not particularly for the holiday itself (full disclosure: I’ve never actually celebrated Thanksgiving or eaten pecan pie) but because my best friend from New York would be flying 12 long hours twice during the weekend just to come see me all the way in Argentina. …

Thanksgiving. It really is one of the best holidays in the world. You eat and drink copious amounts surrounded by the people you love, pass out somewhere from your food coma and wake up to eat leftovers. I really don’t understand why Australians have not adopted this celebration as we love to eat, we love to drink, and “cheers mate” (meaning thank …

In The Art of Travel Fall 2016, Sydney, Thanksgiving by Tamera1 Comment

I am going to be honest and say this Thanksgiving was far better than I expected it to be. I didn’t have high hopes for it, and for the past few weeks, I have been dreading the day. Thanksgiving is when all my family gets together, and I see some family members and friends that I haven’t seen since the previous Thanksgiving. …
