An UnAmerican Thanksgiving!

So last week was Thanksgiving, my first without my family and my first not in America! It was strange to see all the facebook status of my peers talking about being home with their families for the holidays. Certainly only made me more homesick than I already am!

Stop One: Broadway Tower Broadway Tower was … Continue reading »

Hodge Podge Update

Adjusting to life back in Bath after a week of travelling was strange to say the least. Bath was our home we were all looking forward to resting in, but I’m still awfully homesick for America — Virginia! I came back feeling exhausted but invigorated with a passion for travelling. But of course I had … Continue reading »

Fall Break Pt 3 — Prague

Due to poor planning on our part and financial influence, Laura and I only had 24 hours in Prague but we made the most of it! Our train from Berlin to Prague (including drunk Germans at 7am for the five hour train ride) arrived around noon. After deciphering some terrible directions provided by the hostel, … Continue reading »
