An Overseas 21st Birthday Celebration

It’s been a month since I’ve hit the big 2-1. Now that the day has come and gone, it’s funny to think about the fact that I’ve been excited for this birthday since I had the first big milestone at 16. Forget the excitement of having a driver’s license and being able to purchase lottery tickets. Forget the (theoretical) purchase of a pack of Black & Milds and the knowledge that I’ve been able to legally drink in Canada (a mere 1.5 hours away) for the past two years. The exciting day has come, a day that is consistently hyped up in American pop culture. I can now legally drink and purchase alcohol on American soil.

Sums up my thoughts leading up to the big day.

Exploring Kutna Hora

Spring Break is finally here. After almost two months of living abroad, we finally have a welcome respite from our schoolwork. If I was home, I’d probably be sitting on my couch watching Netflix and taking daily Dunkin Donuts runs. Here, it’s a different story. This will be the third weekend that I am traveling, and every trip brings about new experiences and places to cross off my bucket list.

I’m sitting on a train heading to Munich, Germany as I write this post. The fact that there’s WiFi in the coach has provided me with just the right amount of motivation to sit down and blog. We’re traveling through the Czech Republic countryside, and it’s just the beginning of our six-hour journey.

Experiencing new-found motivation to blog this afternoon.
