I flew into London Gatwick exactly six months ago today!
Since then I’ve
1. learned to ride a moped
2. learned to ride a bicycle
3. gotten tons of infant care experience
4. viel Deutsch gelernt
5. made lots of friends
6. joined an Austrian choir
7. gained a second family
and TRAVELED to
Linz, Wels, Salzburg, Vienna, Innsbruck, Graz, Gmunden, the Wachau, Eferding, and Christkindl.
London, Rome, Nuremberg, Passau, Berlin, Venice, Florence, Amsterdam, Budapest, Prague, and Zurich.
I’ve made a few really excellent decisions in my life. Attending the Alabama School of Fine Arts, going to a sleepover in 9th grade that cemented my group of lifelong best friends, attending Agnes Scott College, buying an annual pass to Disney World…but the decision to come to Austria for a year is in a class of its own for the kind of daring, special, once-in-a-lifetime experience that it has become.
Hooray for seven more months of adventuring!
