Today we left for Prague! It was a last minute decision, but since we had some extra time after our class, Lauren, Kat, Kaley and I decided to take a train to Prague! We travelled to one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen. I loved Prague! We met some incredible people in the hostel we stayed at and toured the best sights in the city. We hiked the Petrin hills, from where we got some remarkable views of the city. The buildings and rooftops in Prague are so beautiful-there are several different reds, oranges, and greens that go so beautifully together! I definitely want to come back to Prague someday. Maybe for another study abroad… :)
A huge part of my experience over here has been the people we have met and befriended. It is such an amazing thing to all of a sudden have friends all over the world! Peter in Canada, Jon in London, Scott in Louisiana, Katherine in Australia, Tommy and Sam in Florida, Jordi in Amsterdam, Abby in Chicago...it is amazing! I am so excited to take some of these people up on their offers to visit them. I am even thinking of planning a train trip to Canada in the fall...who knows! Traveling has been so much fun and it has made me want to do even more...I am already thinking about other programs I can apply for while I am still in school. I have been so inspired by this trip, the people I have met, the places I have visited, the cultural experiences I have been a part of. That being said, I am very excited to return to the forest for my summer job and be back with my close friends and coworkers. However, I miss Europe already!
