Finishing up finals was the best feeling ever. But packing up to go traveling around Europe was an even better feeling. For those who don’t know me, I love traveling. I love seeing different cities, ethnicities, and cultures. Learning different lifestyles and countries is the one experience that cannot be replicated; you must see it for yourself.
For 22 years, I have only left America once on a girls trip to the Bahamas but I would still think of myself as a traveler. With an open opportunity for a mini trip, I was all for it. I’ve visited numerous of places in the U.S.: Pittsburgh, San Francisco, San Diego, Boston, New York City. You name it, I’ve probably been there. Even different universities within a close proximity of my college to see how other college students live their experience in comparison to William and Mary.
Heading to my flight I was thinking…do I know these people? Besides Katie Fox, I’ve only seen Emily Leer, Meghan McGuinness, Cory Starkey and Sarah Benedetti on occasions in Ireland and we all know seeing someone for a day and actually living or traveling with them are TWO completely different things. Boarding my flight alone to see my favorite Victory Scholars, I had a feeling of excitement and nervousness. People who I click with so well will actually see the REAL day-to-day me. Also, traveling in Europe compared to the U.S. can get a little scary too.
As my flight was about to take off I took a deep breathe…ready for the next nine days.
