As I began to think about what my favorite part of the trip was, I realized I could not narrow it down to just one. Some of my favorite cities were Brugge, Belgium; Paris, France; and Amsterdam, Netherlands. I loved the quaintness and old-European feel in Brugge. Everything was within walking distance and we were able to see most of the city. In Paris, the highlight for me was seeing the Eiffel Tower. It was even more beautiful than I expexted, especially at night when it glittered. The subway system in Paris was also very nice and allowed us to explore the city easier. I liked Amsterdam because it was different than the other cities we visited. The many bridges and similar buildings gave the city a distinct look. I enjoyed every city we visited, but these three stood out to me.
Before this trip I had never been to Europe, and through traveling with a group throughout Europe for 3 weeks I learned a lot. I became more familiar with the different cultures and customs in Europe as well as adjusting to the language barrier. This experience has definitely prepared me for future travel. Reflecting on this trip I am amazed at how many cities and cool places we got to visit. I loved traveling with this group of people and the professors who made it all possible!
