My European Bucket List

A semester may seem like a long time to be abroad but it flies by faster than you can imagine. Be prepared with this bucket list.

Once you get a taste of what it is like to explore Europe, you’ll never want to stop traveling. I’ve come to realize that you gain so much more through experiences. You learn to cope with troubles while facing adversity on your own. There’s no doubt about it, you’ll learn a lot about who you are while you explore the world, so might as well live it up and see as many places while you have the opportunity to.

Although I wasn’t able to check off all of these things off my bucket list, I definitely added some new adventures for next time!
