A "NEWFIE" GOES ON AN ADVENTURE TO NEWFOUNDLAND, CANADA IN 2015
May 6, 2015
Hello New, Returning, & Future ESL Academy Students: My name is Gia Benigni Di Borgo, and I am the headmistress for ESL Academy. I felt it necessary to formally introduce myself at the very start of the new year, especially after having January flash past most of our eyes very quickly.
I'm very excited about 2015, since so much of ESL learning, international traveling, and meeting new students is happening. Hello to new and prospective academy students! The Academy looks forward in sharing many, many, superlative English conversations with everyone.
Out of the gate I'd like to announce what's going on in the news about the academy and myself. I am highlighted in the news on the wonderful WritngWalkingWomen.com website. The WWW group is all about some 35 or so women that will be walking the NewFoundland TransCanada Trail in 2015. It is a nearly 100 mile pilgrimage of successful women travel writers and writers of other genres who will be embarking upon the adventure of a lifetime. Feel free to travel over to the WritingWalkingWomenwebsite and learn about the very first time that I traveled alone. I traveled to Mackinac Island. I ventured to the far off territory in upper peninsula Michigan where only horses gallop on cobble pavements and where merchants have erected shoppes that seem to harbor some of the most exceptional, eye-catching and nostalgic, most magnificent beachfront property ever. Mackinac Island sports the most passionate and endearing, timeless island beauty of an old fashioned village. You must pay this spawling island retreat a visit in your lifetime!
Additionally, I look forward in sharing....
My Mackinac Island Summer, to you all. If by chance you have the festive occasion to travel to this illustrious city, port, and over to the island, don't forget head on over to the Cupola Bar at the extreme top of the Grand Hotel. One can take in the astonishing views of the hotel grounds, main street, via the Shepler's or Starline ferries making their way across Lake Huron. The Grand Hotel opened in 1887, and it is the largest summer hotel in the world. And guess what? You can still marvel in all of the splendor of yesterday since motorized vehicles aren't allowed on Mackinac Island. Bicycles and horse drawn carriages are the usual modes of transportation! You can travel from the mainland via either the Shepler's or Starline Ferry services here and here.
