South East Asia: Adventures

It’s week two in Seoul, South Korea. Having visited this beautiful country last summer, everything is just as exciting and fast-paced as I remember. It took no time at all to get adjusted and settled in. As I am just in the beginning of classes though, I’d like to tell about my previous travels. I…

Thailand: Spring Break

My university in Tokyo has its break between semesters during February and March.  After being in Tokyo for six months, I felt like I was losing some of my original awe for the city.  Additionally, Tokyo winter is very dry and windy.  The perfect combination to convince me to stay in my dorm all day…

Finalmente he llegado a Perú

Finally on my way to Lima, Peru for the semester! I have wanted to study abroad for what feels like my entire life and it is somewhat surreal to be on my way to accomplishing that dream. I will be staying with a host family, who will be picking me up from the airport. Not…

Bree//France: Ma famille française

I will never forget these nights. Nights when I wake up from a nap (which I am apparently known as the girl out of the house who takes the most, go figure) and go downstairs to eat dinner with my French family. Nights when I expect the normal; the discussion of everyday things, the recount…

Switzerland: They like me! They really like me!

This week has been an especially busy week in the Land of Chocolate, and I’m doing my best to “just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.” Last weekend was Carnival in Fribourg, meaning that people select the wackiest, most outrageous costumes, parade around the streets, listen to off-key bands, eat, and of course, drink. In Fribourg, their…

France:Home Away From Home

Since we last spoke I have discovered something truly amazing here in Aix, a Mexican restaurant. Its not exactly La Parilla like we have in Georgia, but it is so much more.  We discovered Tapa’s Café from another America student here. It drew our attention because we heard it had guacamole so we made a…

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…

Czech Republic: Guten tag, Berlin

Two weekends ago I went to Berlin, Germany! Now I will admit, my expectations were pretty high for Germany, I’d heard so many great things about it from several people, but it wasn’t what I was expecting. The city wasn’t very beautiful but it was extremely interesting learning more about Berlin’s history. On Friday we…

Stop Smiling!

The more time I spend in this amazing city, the more I love it and feel at home. My University (pictured above) astounds me with its beauty every day. The metro navigation has become a part of my daily life and is 10 times more enjoyable than any other metro I have ridden, well, as enjoyable as…
