Arrival Home

As my trip to Ireland winded to an end, I got very sad to travel home.  My summer in Ireland was one of the best experiences that I could have asked for.  I was able to make so many new friends, travel all throughout Ireland and explore other countries in Europe, learn about the Irish culture, and gain great work experience.  I was sad to leave and nervous what it would be like going back to the States.  When I arrived back it was...

Bye Berlin, Back in the States!

Although I was very disappointed to be leaving Berlin, a city I had grown to be familiar with and love, I was also very excited to go home and see my friends again and return to Tuscaloosa, a place that I had missed very much.

My flight was to Lisbon and left at 6:15, only for me to catch my flight to Boston at 10 Lisbon time. I arrived in Boston at 3 P.M. EST, but my body thought it was 8 or...

Abroad in Germany – Upon Return

  My time abroad in Germany has recently come to an end. While abroad, I have made many new friends and learned a lot about German language and culture. My last week, which was spent in Munich and other parts of Bavaria, was by far my favorite part of the trip. I was able to see a wide variety of locations, and had the opportunity to try many different Bavarian foods. I found the city of Munich itself to be especially scenic, and...
