If I can start to count a year on 21st September of 2016 and end it on 22nd September of 2017, then I have to admit that this was the best year I have ever had! So many adventures, so many new impressions, so much joy and happiness! I met so many amazing people! Everything we did was fantastic! I will never forget it!
On 21st September of 2016 I moved to Prague for Erasmus+ studies. I moved there to study Architecture for 10 months. It was marvelous! I will dedicate a special post for Erasmus stories but I can say that Erasmus+ really broadened my mind, I got a chance to meet fantastic people! It is really a great opportunity to meet people from other countries who are on the same wave just like you. They are like your soul mates. And also that is kind of a way to get to know new cultures. People I met were not just from different countries but also from different continents. I cannot forget to tell also about school. I learned a lot! I used a chance to take advantage to learn there some subjects which I cannot take at my home university. Basically I learned a lot! It was outstanding experience!
After that I went to France. I was invited for my friend’s wedding which took a place in Paris. It was not my first time in Paris but still it was nice to return. Of course, wedding itself was really great and gorgeous! I have been in some weddings before but this particular was special, it was different from what we have in Latvia. So again we could learn a new culture and traditions. We spend some nice time there!
During exchange I met many, many people, as I said before, and as you maybe noticed, I love to travel! After Erasmus I decided to visit all my friends wherever they are in the world. So I started with Mexico! My friends invited me to come there and after a while I decided that I will go! I have to admit that this was my first time when I went outside of Europe. I was super excited! So I just found some cheap tickets, planned some places to see and packed my backpack. Yeah, I went there for 6 weeks just with 1 backpack. Really handy! Those were super gorgeous weeks! I have no words to describe what I experienced! I was shocked for so many things, in a good way of course! Mexico is really a gorgeous country!
Then I came back and between Mexico and school I had two weeks to spend in my hometown. It was nice to be at home after being abroad for such a long time. In the end of last semester I got a chance to go to America again. This time- USA. Since I have to finish my bachelor degree this semester, I didn’t have much time for USA, but two weeks were pretty enough to understand that I will need to go there soon again! Places I saw were really, really beautiful! We were lucky cause in such a short time we could see the essence of 4 states! My impression about USA is very good!
To summarize, I will say again that this year was really unbelievable, impressive and amazing! I will try to describe later each of paragraphs more specifically. I will let you know about my opinion about those places and if you want to, I can also give some recommendations which will be based on my experience!
Thank you! And see you soon again!
