My time in Prague is something I’ll never forget. It was my first time traveling out of the country and I thought that 3 weeks was going to be too long for me and I would be miserable by the end of week 1. I was so wrong; I didn’t want to leave. I was dragging my feet at the airport.
I loved getting to have 3 whole weeks to explore a different country. One of the highlights of the trip for me, was seeing my first Opera, Don Giovanni. The theater was beautiful and the singing was amazing. I also loved that it was the same theater the opera originally preimeried in in 1787, that touch of history made the night even more special. Another special moment of the trip for me was visiting Terezin, a concentration camp from WWII. I really don’t have the words to describe this particular trip. The best way that I can say it was it was heavy. I could feel a weight in my chest as we toured the city.
Some of my other favorite moments of the trip was the time I spent just walking around by myself. I took my time so that I could soak in everything around me and truly commit it all to memory.
If you have the chance, make a study abroad trip happen!
