What I Wished I Packed When Studying Abroad in Prague
It's crazy to think that this time last year I was getting ready for my four month adventure in Prague. How has an entire year gone by already? I miss those four months abroad looking back there's so many things I would have done differently and one of those would be packing.
That One Time I Studied Abroad
Remember that one time I went abroad and frolicked across Europe for almost 5 months? I wouldn't have really gone abroad if I didn't write some sappy post about it and I wouldn't be me if I didn't write said post like 3 months too late. so here it is: a post all about how “study abroad changed my life 5ever and how I’m so cultured and different now”
Travel Guide: Amsterdam
Walking around Amsterdam felt like walking around a pop-up fairytale book. Architecturally it looks and feels different than most of the cities I saw in Europe. With its buildings in all shades of black, grey, and maroon and the plethora of canals and bridges, Amsterdam doesn't feel like a real city at all.
Photo Diary: Amsterdam
Amsterdam was less about seeing all the sights and more about eating good food, walking aimlessly, and having good conversations with my friend Irvi. That being said, every inch of Amsterdam is adorable and photogenic so naturally I took photos of as many canals and moody-toned buildings as humanly possible. We also took a short trip out to Keukenhoff to see the famous Dutch tulips!
Travel Guide: Brussels
Brussels originally wasn't on my list of places to visit, but when my old roommates asked if I wanted to join them on this trip, I couldn't say no. It's a beautiful and walkable city and I'm already planning on going back! Brussels is also a really easy place to do with Amsterdam (only 3 hours away via bus) or Bruges if you don't want to stay in the city the whole time.
Photo Diary: Brussels
Oh Brussels, I loved you and your fries so much that I've already booked a ticket to go back. I loved being reunited with my friends from New York and getting to explore the city together. Although our large group brought me lots of stress and frustration (#solotraveler4life), I got to enjoy some of the best fries ever, delicious waffles, and relive my childhood at the comic museum.
Photo Diary: Budapest
I generally don't like taking photos of buildings, but Budapest was so beautiful that I couldn't help myself. This city has some pretty impressive architecture (Parliament, Buda Castle, and St Stephen's Basilica are absolute dreams), but overall the city has more of a relaxed feeling to it.
Dobry Den from Praha
Uhhh hi there! So I never mentioned it on the blog, (but If you follow me on instagram you already know this) but I'm studying abroad in Prague, Czech Republic for the next four months! I've been here for about three weeks so far and it's been quite an adjustment. I've felt uncomfortable and confused and have missed home, but that's exactly why I came here. If you expect to feel comfortable and cozy while studying abroad then you probably haven't chosen the right place.
