This last month has been wild. My parents came and I added four new countries to my list of travels, this time in a different fashion since my family was along for the ride. I can’t express how great of an idea it was to have my family come and travel at the end. I’m endlessly grateful for their support in making my time abroad a success.
Now, I write this laying in bed back in Walla Walla. The adjustment was sudden, the jetlag was real, and I’ve already looked at ticket prices to try and go back soon. Many of my classmates and roommates were understandably ready to go home. And while I don’t feel that way, I can’t explain why. I’m unable to put into words my experiences to those who ask, there’s too much to fit into too few words.
All I can say is thank you for reading along with my life these last six months. I hope this is helpful to the readers who have already messaged me with further questions or to future readers looking for an ounce of wisdom or courage to go abroad. I’m excited to settle into life in Walla Walla for the last 12 months of my undergraduate career and bring the happiness I found in Vienna home to the USA.
Thank you again for reading along, and if I learned nothing else this semester, at least I learned how to say AUF WEDERSEHEN!
