Voices from Abroad
Studying at NYU Prague
Undergraduate student Adebunmi “Bunmi” O Onitiri blogs from her semester abroad at NYU Prague.
All the people I met and places I've been have made it the best experience of my life.
Well the semester is over and I'm no longer a study abroad student at NYU Prague. I'm not even a Sophomore anymore!! How did this happen so fast? Even though its nice to hear English again and eat all the food I've been missing (a k a Auntie Anne's, Chipotle, Shake Shack, etc.), words cannot express how amazing study abroad was. I (along with everyone else who was a part of this experience, I'm sure) can honestly say that these were the best four months of our lives. It didn't even hit me until I was standing in line at American customs that this was the end. Had to pull myself together so I wouldn't fall apart in front of national airport security, but it didn't take long for the reverse culture shock to kick in.
Last time I blogged I said I was going to talk about my week. Well it was Spring Break week and I’m not lying or exaggerating when I say this but there’s honestly nothing like Spring Break abroad, especially if you're traveling from Prague. You'll understand why after I share my favorite moments in Madrid, Barcelona and Lisbon with two of my favorite people (shoutouts to Kim Pham and Cassie Sanders)
Can you believe we're halfway through spring semester already? Back in February, all of us in Prague felt like it was Siberia with temperatures at five degrees almost everyday. I remember when it hit 30 degrees, everyone went crazy about how ""warm"" it was. So of course I'm more than happy that its springtime, but still shocked how quickly time has passed. It’s probably why I haven't been keeping up with you guys about NYU Prague life. So to make up for it, I'm going to give some basic, everyday Prague experiences and then the cities I've traveled to since I've been here. Hopefully I won't be too long, but bear with me...
