Four years ago, in May 2014, I rekindled my passion for traveling. That’s not to say the passion ever truly went away, but finances and school, and blah blah blah, life in general just got in the way. Between my first international trip in the summer of 2006 and my study abroad trip in May-June of 2014 I traveled within the US. I became more comfortable on a plane, I saw more big cities but I did not have the opportunity to experience a different culture. The idea of studying abroad in 2014 was scary, but I am eternally glad that I did it. I needed to step outside my comfort zone and really start working towards the things I was passionate about. Na zdrowie!
