Falling for Autumn in the Czech Republic

For my annual trip to the Czech Republic, I decided to extend my stay a bit longer to visit some new (and old) places, but mainly to see all of my friends and “family” there. Along the way, I managed to see a lot of my favorite spots around the country, as well as go to some beautiful places, accentuated by the autum colors, for … Continue reading Falling for Autumn in the Czech Republic

2015: Traveling On

With 2016 mere hours away, I was on a flight home from Guatemala and had time to think about my past year of travel with another stamp in my passport just in time. Here are my personal traveling highlights of 2015, with many other trips and stories in between. March 2015: Chicago Although I cannot say I fell in love with the grandeur Chicago itself, … Continue reading 2015: Traveling On

Poslední Před Nakonec*

Although I thought this week would feature much more time to relax after the stress of last week, I found myself really busy and the time definitely flew by. However, it hasn’t really hit me yet that I’m leaving in one week.

I’m now officially less than one month away until my arrival back in the USA.  Each day that starts out empty gets filled up and the little excitements have come to feel like just a normal Znojmo day at this point. I’m going … Continue reading The Beginning of the End

Lessons Learned Alone

Besides experiencing new cultures, trying new foods, taking social media-worthy photos and crossing off global bucket list items, when you travel, you are also pushing the limits of your comfort zone.  I have been lucky to travel a lot with family, friends, family-friends, and student groups. I am also lucky to have a supportive family and group of friends at home.  Needless to say that … Continue reading Lessons Learned Alone

Visits and Adventures

May has meant official “spring” weather in Znojmo. The week I returned from Copenhagen was rainy and chilly, although apparently this is an annual event related to saints and like St. Martin’s Day in November, it signals the official coming of warm weather and the time to plant your flowers (according to Jana). Then, last week was sunny, gorgeous, and HOT! It was perfect for the … Continue reading Visits and Adventures
