July 2015

I spent two weeks + a few days in the small college town of Amherst, Massachusetts working as a student mentor at a summer school program for international high school students. Though hours-wise it was a fulltime position, as it was residential we would still get half days/full days off, and I spent those times exploring the Pioneer Valley - primarily the town of Amherst and the nearby city of Northampton. As I only had two weeks in Massachusetts I knew I had to cram each free day with exploration, which led me to finding numerous bookstores - where I may or may not have purchased seven books - and adorable coffeeshops. This was my first time visiting New England and even though I only got a small taste of the area, I loved it, and I would love to visit again soon.
