We Were On a Boat…

In The Art of Travel, 15. Farewells, Prague by Alice2 Comments

It’s really hard to believe that this semester has already come to an end. As I walk through Old town Square, Vinohrady, and some other places I’ve frequented throughout the year, it seems surreal to me that this may be the last time I see them. I’ve been around many places, come and gone from city to city, home to …

Nos Vemos

In The Art of Travel, 15. Farewells, Buenos Aires by Kiana1 Comment

In the last few days leading up to a big move, often times we’ll find that we have already emotionally left. Bags are packed, airport transportation arrangements are made, and images of our destinations play like movie trailers in our minds.

This week, as people begin to pack up their things and head for Sydney Airport, unsure of when they’ll return again, I can’t help but feel quite sad. Suddenly, I’m not ready to return to New York.

So after a while, I generally stopped using this phrase. I’d rather …

There is much to talk about in terms of reflecting on my experiences in Shanghai, both good and bad. However, this experience has fundamentally shifted my values and outlook on life. I think I had one of the most rewarding experiences just this past weekend. For my final project in my journalism class, I had to create a pictorial essay—basically …

See you Later, Sydney

In The Art of Travel, 15. Farewells, Sydney by Nicolas1 Comment

Personally, I knew from the day I arrived in Sydney, the “success” of my study abroad experience would rely heavily on the circumstances and priorities that I set for myself.  Although there were some absolutely fantastic times in Sydney, I can’t help but admit I likely should have branched out a bit further and tried to travel to see different …

See You Later

In The Art of Travel, 15. Farewells, Florence by Isabel1 Comment

Wow. All I can really say is wow. I’m still finding it hard to grasp the idea that I’m leaving in less than a week. This experience was not what I thought it would be, and at the same time, it was exactly how I thought it would be. Let me explain. When I go into experiences such as this …
