While some of you may be getting ready to head back to the States after a whirlwind fall semester abroad, other students are dreaming about a Christmas in Italy and starting their checklists for the upcoming Spring 2015 semester. As the holidays are drawing closer each day, we thought we’d give you some holiday gift ideas for the travel-addicted wanderer in your life. Whether they’re coming back into your life or getting ready to head out on that study-abroad adventure and start gallivanting around Europe, these gifts will serve to help them along their way…..
This 4-in-1 lens kit is the perfect solution to packing those bulky SLR cameras for the weekend. If you’ve got your phone with you already, why not maximize its potential and use it as your camera for taking that perfect pic in front of the Eiffel Tower? Save the space in your carry-on for souvenirs instead!
What better way to store all those precious memories from your 3 months abroad than with an Instagram collage? Use your best photos to create posters, magnets, scrapbooks and more.
Want a better way to keep track of the countries you’ve visited than buying keepsake postcards, shotglasses or passport stamps? Look no further than this scratch-off travel map from Luckie’s.
An absolute essential for any study abroad student, the portable device charger is perfect for staying connected during those long bus rides or overnighters at the airport.
Keeping track of time differences can be challenging, but not if you’re wearing a dual time-zone watch! Now you’ll never have to guess what time is appropriate to call your parents and beg them to put money in your account when you’ve run out of cash.
This tiny foldable pouch contains a micro-fiber towel that is easy to pack and in much better condition than that rented towel from your hostel. Absorbs up to 4 times its weight in water and won’t leave your backpack smelling like a wet dog after an unexpected thunderstorm.
Staying hydrated is important while you’re busy running around Europe, and these foldable bags come with a nifty clip so you can attach them to your backpack or store it away in your purse when you’ve got to go through airport security.
Happy Holidays from all of us at AIFS Florence! We hope that good health and happiness follows you wherever you are in the world.
In the eyes of AIFS Partnership Programs, the Summer ended over a week ago with the departure of our final group. Since then we’ve been cleaning, checking, counting, paying the bills and installing a sweet new sound system to
disturb the neighbors make watching movies better, all the while staff have been slowly slipping away on vacation…
We’re looking forward to welcoming our new students in September. Until then its time to enjoy the city as it empties out for the holiday weekend.
Enjoy your Summer.
