Prague, Czech Republic

I was so happy to get the chance to go to Prague. It’s a city rich in history, architecture, culture, and color, and it was a dream to be able to spend a weekend there. This was also my first solo trip in and it was actually pretty great! I was surprised at how easily walkable the city is- I was able to walk from downtown all the way across Charles Bridge to the castle and church on the other side of the river. Day One After arriving to the hostel late the night before, I took my time sleeping…

Munich, Germany

Day One There wasn’t much that happened the first day, as I arrived late in the evening on Thursday, and my friend met me at the Airport and helped me navigate the Munich public transport system. After getting back to the apartment I had a much needed glass of wine, watch the roommates play this hilarious worm video game, and went to bed after planning out what I would do the next day. Day Two I started out walking to Marienplatz, and on my way stopped by the local Starbucks for a muffin and coffee. After Marienplatz I made my…

Lyon, France

This was an API sponsored trip to Lyon. That morning, I missed my alarm and the bus, but I bought a ticket there and ended up meeting the group around 1:00pm. That gave me a little time to explore on my own before reconvening, and I was able to snap some great pictures of the main square. I also walked to the river, and managed to take few pictures of the city from that point of view. After meeting the group by the King Louis statue, we made our way onto the bus and to the Basilisque Notre Dame de…

Cliffs of Moher

We took a day trip to the Cliffs of Moher in western Ireland and made a few stops along the way. First, we visited Corcomroe Abbey, which had such an interesting history! Afterwards, we stopped by “The Little Cliffs” at The Burren on our way to the Cliffs of Moher, which I think you can actually see in the distance in the picture below. It was so incredibly cold and windy at the Cliffs! Absolutely nothing like the good weather we had the day before at the Giant’s Causeway. There was this sort of walkway that had been made by…

Giant’s Causeway

While I was staying in Dublin, it was really important to me to get out and see the natural beauty that Ireland is renowned for. The top two places to see were Giant’s Causeway and the Ciffs of Moher. On the way to the Causeway we stopped by the Dark Hedges, which apparently stars in Game of Thrones! Then we stopped by the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge, which was such a fun time. The weather ended up being nice enough that we could actually see the coastline of Scotland on the horizon! Afterwards we stopped for lunch in Doolin Village for…
