Being in the Moment

My journey traveling to the Czech Republic was a trip I will always remember. It was interesting to see how the group of students we traveled with adapted to the living situation with out access to WiFi. Personally, I would not of had it any other way. Not having access to the internet allowed not only myself but the others in the group to be in the moment and enjoy one another’s company, which to me was one of the most important experiences through out the trip. If it was not for the people that I had met, being in the moment would have been a lot more challenging. It is important to put down the cell phone and view the city from within and without.

Learning about migration was also extremely interesting, especially because we were partially living as immigrants ourselves. I was able to put into perspective all of the information we were learning since we were experiencing it first hand. Since the communist era, I noticed the older generations to be a little less accepting of us compared to the younger generations. However, it is all a learning experience and there is honestly no better place to learn. There is much history to be taught and having the opportunity to go on excursions to other cities was beneficial to the learning experience. It was a true journey getting accustomed to the different culture, it seemed as though once I finally became accustomed it was time to leave. I can effortlessly say that Prague is a city I will be returning to.
