Bittersweet

It literally seems like yesterday that I was getting excited and nervous to be leaving for 6 weeks in Europe. How fast those six weeks have flown by. As I mentioned in my previous blog post this has been the best thing that I have ever done in my entire 21 years. From the friendships that I’ve made, the life lessons that I’ve learned and the places that I’ve seen, I could not ask for anything different.

They say that your twenties are your defining decade. I’m confident that with this experience, I’m heading down the right path– the one that I want to be on. Spending four weeks in Prague with a group of strangers, has confirmed that people come and go in our lives for certain purposes. I know that out of the 40 or so people in the program, I will probably never see most of them again. However, each person has taught me something in one way or another. It is them that motivates me to switch a few things around in my own personal life.

I’m bittersweet about leaving tomorrow evening. I’ve enjoyed almost every second here and I don’t want it to come to an end. But, as we all know, things come to an end for a new beginning to start.

I can’t say thank you enough to everyone from back home that has made this trip happen. If it weren’t for all of you… I truly wouldn’t have been able to do this.

A BIG THANK YOU to my Aunt Janis and Uncle Bill, Dad & Mom, and my sister, Amanda, for taking full responsibility of my sweet Nala girl. Also a big thank you to all of the families that loaded me up with babysitting jobs leading up to my departure. It’s because of you all, I am one extremely happy girl.

Now, let the packing commence! It’s strange how I lost some things along my traveling (my absolute favorite pair of jeans, my favorite swim suit, the new beach towel that I bought before I left, and a top…) YET, I still can’t close my suitcase!

Ciao! Xoxo
