Au revoir

Bonjour a tous! So it’s over now.  I have officially left Paris, and frankly, I’m heartbroken.  I assumed I would be sad when I left, but I had no idea how genuinely crushed I would be to leave the amazing life that I built in just eight weeks.  I have completely fallen in love with…

Since When Did I Become a Prague Tour Guide?!?

For my parent’s 25th wedding anniversary they both took separate vacations to Prague to visit me !! It just so happened that my parents came over to Prague at different times. My dad and I spent a week together in Prague before my program and my mom arrived on Friday and leaves on Wednesday. They…

The Gaelic Games

This past week has been filled with a lot of growth not only in business but with friends! Saturday one of our partners got us tickets to a Gaelic football semifinal match. It was so cool because I got to go with all my coworkers and bond with everyone outside of the office. It was…

A Weekend of Markets

This week at work started off a little bit boring. I was given two overstuffed binders full of company invoices and asked to make copies of all of them, and then file the copies. Between the copy machine jamming frequently and other people printing papers, it ended up taking me a little over two full…

The Dublin Diary: A Royal Adventure

Working in Ireland has far exceeded any expectation I could have had.  The culture of my firm is very open and their four core values – which I have helped develop since being here – are: 1) Drive Growth, 2) Strive for Excellence, 3) Create Together, and 4) Don’t Forget to LOL.  I think these…

I Have Arrived!

Hi all! Well, I am finishing up my first official week here in the UK, and I cannot stress how much I already love it here. The people, the atmosphere, the food, and everything about London is incredibly diverse and interesting. From the moment I stepped off the plane in Heathrow Airport, I knew that…
