As I did for the one-third & one month mark, I am taking some time to reflect as I am at the two-thirds & two months mark. This time, I have decided I want to talk about what I have experienced. Of course, I can’t really explain everything I have experienced, it is literally impossible, and my whole blog is full of stories of my specific experiences, but I will do my best to give a general overview of my semester abroad overall so far.
Being here with 50 other Baylor students who I have gotten to know and live in community with has been incredible. I have formed friendships with incredible Christ-followers who have built me up and taught me more about God and helped me grow into myself, all of whom go to the same school as I do, but I likely never would have met them otherwise. I know that the strong relationships I have built with these people will stay with me as we all return to Baylor because they have been such an essential part of my growth and development and have loved me through all the stress and craziness of traveling. I have made friendships that will last me a lifetime.
Experiencing incredible chocolate on a daily basis and being able to compare different amazing chocolates has turned me into a total chocolate snob. My daily chocolate consumption levels are evidence that I am definitely experiencing this part of the European culture.
