Hello again, everybody! As most of you probably already know, I had to make the unfortunate and difficult, but responsible decision to end my exchange year early due to the implications of the current virus and pandemic situation around the world. As a result, I returned home at the very end of March, and have … Continue reading 2240 Reunited ~ The End of a Journey
You're telling me it's March already?? How'd that happen! Seriously, January and February absolutely flew by-- and we even had an extra day in there! Looking back on February, it really was packed full once again. I think at this point I'm just so used to being on the go, that not having free weekends … Continue reading Over the Hill of Exchange
I'm finally back on track! Now that I'm past the halfway point of my exchange, it's sort of crazy to look back on my past posts and see everything that has happened and all the things I've been fortunate enough to do. Even though it's been only five months, it feels as though I've been … Continue reading From Poprad to Prague ~ Two Worlds
Hello everyone! I bet you thought I’d given up on my blog, hehe. But I promise I haven’t, and I’m planning on being back on schedule with my posts now that the Holidays are over. Contrary to the title of this post, I am actually starting this post off from before Christmas where I left … Continue reading New Stories for a New Year
Sorry for the long delay between posts! I know I'm sounding like a broken record at this point, but it's been a super busy month once again with little free time to sit down and write. But I'm happy now to be back and writing about the amazing month I've had! From where I left … Continue reading Winter is Coming!
October was a month of high highs, and low lows for me here in Slovakia. With drama ramping up back home, and the absence of both Thanksgiving and Halloween in Slovakia- both of which are personal favourites of mine back in Canada- I experienced the wave of heavy homesickness that every exchange student dreads. With … Continue reading Traditions, Old and New.
Finally! A relaxing Sunday where I can settle in and catch up on the past couple weeks. It's been jam-packed once again, and there's too much to talk about all in one post, so I'll just cover the past two weeks, and this most recent weekend will get pushed forward to the next post. Following … Continue reading Colours of Slovakia
As I anticipated in my last post, a LOT has gone on in the past week and a half. I'm very excited to finally have time to sit down and write about everything that's happened! Be warned, this is probably going to be a hefty post, so settle in, maybe grab a cup of coffee … Continue reading 2240 United/On Top of the World
It's been a fairly 'low-key' week and a half (at least, compared to the full-tilt adventures I have been on the first few weeks), but I figured I should make a post anyways, since this weekend will be our first district meetup of all the exchange students in Czechia and Slovakia, and I'll probably have … Continue reading Camp, Coffee, Klavír, and Cheese!
I actually settle down to write a post on time! For once, it seems. This week marked the end of the Summer as well as what seemed like the 'honeymoon' period of my exchange- now the real work (and the stress) begins. That's not to say my exchange isn't still amazing-because it is- but now … Continue reading Čau, Summer!
