Visiting Santorini was high up on my bucket list of travel locations, and I got the chance to do it this past weekend! It was definitely quite the process of getting there, but it was an experience of a lifetime. Being in charge of getting 7 girls to and from a small Greek island definitely tested my travel skills, but after hours of searching for the cheapest and most trustworthy options, I figured it out!
A few people seem a bit concerned with how much I have planned to travel while studying abroad, in fear that I was forgetting about the study aspect. But rest assured, all my trips take place over the weekend! Only having class Monday through Wednesday is definitely fueling my ability to take frequent trips, and given this once in a lifetime opportunity, I have to take every chance I get at a new experience!
So far, my blog has barely mentioned schoolwork, classes, or anything related to my studies while abroad. So, let's step away from the seemingly more fun parts of studying abroad and focus on my academics for a bit! The first thing I'll say is that European schools are no joke! Attendance is strict, standards are high and exceptions are rarely made. But, the rigor and level of difficulty of my classes is a challenge that I am excited to tackle!
