The Week Of

So it’s official I leave in less than a week. I did some math & I’ll be gone for 109 days!! I can’t wait to be out of my comfort zone but not going to lie.. I’m freaking out a little bit. I’m going to miss my friends & family SO much; however I know I have to push myself to do something I’ve always wanted to do.

In 2015 I studied in London for 3 weeks and I never thought it was possible for me to study abroad for a whole semester. I always thought it was too expensive, I would get behind in my studies & my parents wouldn’t approve. Then I started doing the research and found out my school had an exchange program with a business school in the Czech Republic! So it didn’t cost me extra to go there AND they had classes that counted towards my degree. I highly recommend talking with your school’s international department; because most of the time they can find something that works for you.

Why I want to travel abroad

I want the experience of living in a different county and not just traveling through it. I’ve always had this wanderlust inside of me and I was tired of being in one place for so long. So even though I’m scared to leave my home for 4 months; I could not be more ready.

I can’t wait to see the world from a different perspective and to learn things that I couldn’t get out of a book in a classroom. I want to explore all new cities and meet people who make my soul richer. To see that my problems are so small compared to just how big the world is. I am ready to be completely amazed by beautiful views, music, people and architecture. So as this week continues I will start saying my goodbyes (which I’m not ready for, S.O.S) and also try to pack my closet into a suitcase and a backpack… As a classic over packer I don’t know how that is achieved..

So I can’t wait to start this journey and get ready I am about to take a lot of pictures.
