What is one thing that you are most anticipating about your study abroad experience?

Well, while I am here for the sole purpose of studying, there is just something about being in Europe that is just making me want to travel. I was in Europe once many years ago but during that time in England, I learned that Europe is just a great place to be and that is while I wanted to study in Europe. Not only is it pretty easy to get to, it is also easy to get around and travel to other countries. I am really anticipating the future trips I have planned. I have a trip to Germany, possibly Italy and possibly France. I love traveling and it is gorgeous here in Austria so I am anticipating what else is around. 

Why did you decide to study abroad? or What inspired you to study abroad?

As I stated before, I love traveling and while I do love it in the US, there is just something about being away from the States that is just inspiring me to want to travel more on my own. My mother is no where near me to help me out and so this is a total learning experience for me to be here and experiencing a whole other life away from my friends and family. Part of the reason why I am studying abroad was because my mom and I made an agreement that if I were to go to DU, I would study abroad as it is a big thing. I agreed to that because that meant that I would get an opportunity to travel with friends and study in another environment that may be better for me in the long run. I get to go to places that excite me and meet local people. Travelling has always been a big part of my life and to be able to really have accessibility to travel around Europe independently? Who wouldn’t want to do that?
