Hi everyone! I’m back after almost a month of being M.I.A. I’ve been extremely busy with projects, exams, travelling to Europe… you know, the usual! As much as I enjoyed Europe, I was expecting to come home to a brighter, warmer Canada. Unfortunately, spring hasn’t arrived yet which I’m taking quite badly since I’m not very fond of snow and -20° weather.
On a lighter, warmer and sunnier note, my school trip to Europe was absolutely amazing and I really cannot wait to go back. We visited Budapest, Vienna, Prague, Nuremberg and Munich and were treated to wonderful weather the whole trip. The fashion, the architecture and the men were oh-so beautiful. My favorite part of the cities I visited was the lovely produce and artisanal markets. Wow! I am truly amazed at how delicious, local and vibrant these markets were. Surprisingly, even after full days of walking on old stone walkways and running around in alleyways; my feet did not even get sore. I even had a nice sprint-session on my first day I Budapest because we had taken too much time choosing a restaurant and thought we were going to be late to our meeting point.
I really enjoyed the group of people I was with. The friends I made and the overall atmosphere shared between the students and teachers was much more enjoyable than I had anticipated. Even with mild cat-fights and a little drama, we all pulled through and were able to have a memorable vacation before getting back to the daily grind of our final year in high school.
I’m truly blessed to have had the opportunity to travel to Europe and still have trouble believing it happened even with over 700 pictures as proof (oops!). Although the jet-lag has passed and my life is back to normal, I feel like things have changed. I’m not quite sure what ignited this spark of change but I feel like all the big late night discussions I had in Europe made me impatient to move on from my current life. Right now, the only thing on my mind is getting my diploma and graduating. I cannot wait to run out of my school on the last day of school because I know that much greater things are waiting for me in college.
Sorry if this post ends abruptly. I’m still in the process of organizing my travel pictures. It’s been long and tiring but I thought I would write a quick post to bring you up to date on what’s been happening. I've also been trying to plan my trip to Arizona which I'm quite excited about!
