In the spring of 2015, I went on a journey across the pond to Munich, Germany. This journey accomplished more than my study abroad credits. It exposed me to wonderful experiences, cultures, and so much more that I will never regret or forget. The first video shows some pictures that were taken throughout the city of Munich.
One of the things I loved about my study abroad experience was being part of the international club. This group was composed of all the students that were either studying abroad or were part of an exchange program. We embarked on many trips and outings. One of the first trips was to Salzburg, Austria.
One of my favorite trips I went on while studying abroad was skiing in the Alps. The ski lift to the top seemed like an eternity! I was only used to the standard American ski resort lifts. When I reached the top it was actually snowing, however, as I skied to the bottom it got warmer and started to rain. Another cool fact about skiing at this specific ski resort is that I was able to ski on the German/Austrian border. Many years ago the skiers needed to have their passports with them in order to ski across the border. Thankfully, I did not have to bring mine with on this trip.
My birthday weekend was one for the books. Four of my friends and I rented a car drove to Budapest, Hungary and Bratislava, Slovakia. We went on free walking tours of each city. We also visited some museums and museum-like places to learn more about the history of each city. It was a very exciting and a spur of the moment adventure. This video showcases a variety of places and scenery that we visited throughout the trip.
As you can see, I enjoyed my journey across the pond. There are plenty more experiences that I could have shown through photos and videos. If you would like to see these please don't be afraid to check out my Facebook page. Or, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any other questions! I do not regret my decision to study abroad my sophomore year and I will gladly tell you more about my experiences! Thank you for listening to my story.
