My Semester Abroad (a short summary)

I've always loved to travel. Despite my love of travel, I was nervous to go abroad. A semester is a long time to be away from home let alone be on a different continent, and despite all of the amazing things I'd heard about studying abroad, I didn't really know what to expect.  I was definitely excited, but nervous too. 

Well, I can safely that my semester in London exceeded my expectations exponentially. I can't even put into words how amazing these past few months were, but I'll try. Starting with London. I have always loved this city, but I left loving it even more than I did before. Being able to live in a city so vibrant and full of energy and incredible people was amazing. I can easily say I was never bored in London, and there were so many things to see and do that I couldn't even see it all. (Guess it's just an excuse to go back). Being able to live and learn here was so much fun. And I did learn a lot. Classes were hard, but interesting, and all in all, I just really loved having this city as my home base.

As much as I loved London, I am forever grateful for the opportunities I had to travel all around Europe with some of my best friends. Starting with my week long trip to Italy (seeing Milan, Venice, Cinque Terre, and Rome), I had a semester worth of trips I will never forget. Nice, Munich, Florence, Budapest, Paris, and Prague. Each of these cities was a completely different experience, but they each were amazing in their own way. These weekend trips were highlights of my semester; not only because I got to experience so many different cultures, but also because it was so fun and unique being able to explore with my friends and see these cities together. I am also so lucky that this semester brought me closer with people that I hadn't been as close with before. 

Aside from all of the things I've mentioned already, I learned a lot more about myself. I've become a much more confident and independent person thanks to this experience. Living on my own in a new city, learning how to navigate and explore and make new routines was a great learning experience that has made me confident moving forward that I will be able to not only handle new situations but thrive in them. I really had the best time abroad, and never did I think I would be so upset for the semester to end.

I made memories that I will have for the rest of my life, and I am beyond grateful for that. I highly encourage anyone who is considering studying abroad to go because I can not imagine not having the experience!
