My Time Abroad

As stated many times before, this summer was one of the best summers of my life. I enjoyed every minute of my time spent in Prague. I grew so much as an individual and did it beside some great people in the program. From boating on the Vlatava River, to playing Foosball with people from…

Problem Solving

The summer has came and gone faster then I could have expected. Everyone told me it would go by fast but I really just thought that was something people said and that it didn’t hold value. Now sitting here at home in Pennsylvania all I have left to do is look back and reflect on…

Close to the End

As another week passes, I realize that I only have 4 more days in Europe. I know this week will be exceptionally hard because all other programs in my dorm have left. All the people I hung out with are all now home and with their family. Although I knew this would be hard, I…

Global Competency

It is crazy to think there are only two weeks left for my time abroad. The people I have met and the things I have done will never be forgotten. I am beyond grateful to myself and for others who pushed me to experience this. This week was very similar to my others. I had…

Leadership

This weekend my parents came to visit me. It was refreshing to see them after such a long time away. We spent the week drinking beer and eating Czech food. I acted as their tour guide and showed them around the city. We then had a long weekend and traveled to many places within the…

Preparation

This weekend, me and a group of people visited the city of Krakow, Poland. The weather and the city were amazing. While there we visited the massive castle that rises above the city. I really enjoyed my time spent there and it was even nicer because it is a lot less touristy of a place…

The Czech Way

Another hot and stuffy weekend has came and passed in Prague. Each week seems to be hotter then the one prior and the lack of AC really makes you miss the comfort of the United States. This was one of the first weeks I have really felt like a regular though. I have picked up…

Adaptability

This week was full of exploration and discovery with others from my group. We walked and almost got lost in old town looking at all the history and climbing all the spires. The city is beautiful from all angles and it’s crazy to realize it is all older then the United States. We visited Old…

Czechs Don’t Always Run on Time

So far my time in Prague has been great. I learn more and more about the history and the country each week. Recently I went on a tour of the city and they mentioned how just 30 years ago this country was communist. It is really hard for me to fathom how recent that was…
