A weekend in Prague

A few weeks ago my friend Jenna and I went to Prague for a quick weekend! I didn’t know much about Prague but I wanted to go because I heard it was beautiful and I have family from the former Czechoslovakia. It was so beautiful it honestly looked like it was right out of a storybook. This…

Life at Sea

January 13, 2017 I am currently writing this post from the back of the ship on deck 8 in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Even though we have only been on the ship for a little over two days, the MV World Odyssey already feels like home. The first night was amazing. There was…

Dana: Children’s Grand Park in Seoul

Unfortunately, my time in South Korea is gradually coming to an end. It is now my last week in Korea. It is for this reason that I must do everything I can within my power to enjoy every last moment before I return home. This past weekend, my roommate and I visited the Children’s Grand…

Dana: Namsan Tower and Myeongdong

Now that it is November, the temperatures are dropping to below freezing, the leaves are changing to a beautiful array of yellows, reds, and browns, and Korea is as lively as ever. Not too long ago, I got the chance to see Seoul from a vantage point of 236 meters high at the top of…

A thrilling adventure in a place so far from the comforts of my family and friends, this semester has been a whirlwind already! It’s so hard to fathom the thought that I’ve been here in Fribourg for over a month now… Needless to say, my…

Dana: Never a Dull Moment

I have been in South Korea for exactly three weeks now, and I have not experienced any semblance of boredom whatsoever. Experiencing Seoul as an exchange student at Korea University is great, because there is always something to do, outside of studying of course. What stands out the most about Korea for me is definitely…
