After being in Copenhagen for a month and a half, semester break had arrived! I was super excited for my upcoming travels; my itinerary was as follows: Athens, Santorini, Venice, and Rome. I traveled with my friend Ravi who lived across the hall from me in my dorm. What I loved about Athens was the vast amount of street art, monuments, and cute cats roaming the streets. It was exciting being in a city that I learned so much about in my history classes. As for Santorini, it was the epitome of paradise. I was so blown away by the city. The beaches and people were amazing. What made the experience even more fun was getting around Santorini by driving ATVs. It is definitely a place I will return to!
For the second half of my trip, I was thrilled to return to Italy. Venice was such a uniquely beautiful place. We just got lost in the city. Our second night there, we met two Canadians who were also going to Rome next! In Rome, we explored the city with them and really indulged in all the excellent food. Nothing will ever be the same after eating the spectacular food that I had in Rome. It will be dearly missed. Rome in general was such an impressive city; all of the monuments were outstanding. I was so happy that I got to experience those four cities during my break.
Shortly after I returned to Copenhagen, I traveled to Brussels to reunite with other Foster exchange students. It was such a great time getting to know and making friends with people from back home who were also sharing a similar experience as myself. The Foster advisers did an incredible job organizing exciting activities for us to partake in. I had a blast in Brussels!
