I have been done with classes for a week now and can’t believe it. It is crazy how fast time has flown by. It feels like I just went on the integration trip where I met everyone in the exchange program for the first time. Although I will be traveling for the next month, many people are already going home or leaving on their own travel adventures. It will be hard to say goodbye to everyone but I will have lots of places to stay all around the world!
I returned from Berlin yesterday. We were there for the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, which was really exciting. I leave for Stockholm this week and after that will be traveling to Bergen, Prague and southern Spain. I also hope to have a chance to see more of the Netherlands. There are a lot of amazing cities in the Netherlands and they are easy to travel to since the country is so small. Two weekends ago I went to Utrecht, which is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands. Utrecht is very beautiful and similar to Amsterdam, but without all the tourists.
If you visit the Netherlands you have to try Stroopwafels. Stroopwafels are thin Dutch waffle cookies with a syrup filling. You can buy them pretty much everywhere but nothing beats a freshly made one!
I am really going to miss everyone in my exchange program, as well as living abroad. Nothing can compare to the experiences and people I have met. At least with the internet and facebook it will be easier to keep in touch with everyone.
