I could never express just how excited I am to be traveling to Scandinavia next week! I never thought I would have the opportunity to study abroad being a non-traditional student. Here at Mount Mary University, dreams really do come true! It has always been my dream to travel to Europe, and we get to go to three countries, Denmark, Norway and Sweden (eek!)
This trip will be the perfect way to end my last semester. I worked really hard to get here, including working two jobs while taking 18 credits this spring. I know this will be a trip of a lifetime and I cannot wait to start this incredible journey. I truly want to experience new exciting cultures, and have a better view of this wonderful, yet crazy world.
I have never travelled overseas before, so I do have some reservations. Mainly, I HATE flying. When I am in the air, this death gripping anxiety takes hold of me, and it takes an eternity to calm myself. Luckily we are taking a night flight so hopefully I can sleep the entire time (thanks to Benadryl of course). Other than that, I am super eager to go on this trip.
Both sides of my family are from Europe, (Germany and Croatia) so at least I’ll have a small taste of what life is like there. I cannot wait to roam the streets of Copenhagen, see the magnificent fjords of Norway, and view the multicolored architecture in Sweden. Did I mention shopping? I cannot wait!
I hope you’ll join me on my journey to Scandinavia, I will be posting a blog everyday starting March 2nd.
All my love,
