From Dreams to “Stark Reality” in Eastern Europe

Our full-page map in the “Traveling Well” edition of WM includes a journal that Communications and Marketing Videographer Adam Phipps’11 kept during an excursion he took with friends from Bucharest, Romania to Krakow, Poland, toward the end of his four months studying abroad in Italy as a student. (The postcard in the journal is of Bran Castle, the inspiration for the castle in the Disney film “Beauty and the Beast.”)

We asked Adam to describe a few memorable moments that he wrote about (in Italian) in that journal.

Here are three of those moments.
