Hello all! I am back again with yet another segment of this blog to share with you my life here in Graz, Austria.
To start off, last week was the conclusion of my Intensive German course here and nothing broke my heart more than to know that I would no longer spend three hours having German drilled into my head. Man, I am going to miss that…
After final exams, Emily, Brett, and I (along with 50 other Americans) piled into a bus and headed to Ljubljana, Slovenia so we could apply for our visas. Let me inform you that this was the easiest thing I have ever done in the realm of having to provide paperwork for an official, and I can ensure you that the people at the Austrian embassy in Ljubljana are the nicest people. 13/10 would leave them a stellar Yelp review! After turning in my information, I spent the rest of the day exploring the beautiful capital city of Ljubljana, and if you are ever in that wonderful city you must try Klobasarna. Their sausages are TO DIE FOR!!!! On a previous trip to Hungary, I had made a friend out of the guy sitting next to me on the long bus ride whom was from Ljubljana so I messaged him ahead of time that I would be in town and spent the next couple of hours hanging with him and his dog Ollie (pictured above). The next day, we spent a few hours in the beautiful city of Bled before heading back to Graz.
I was able to attend an American Literature course and I felt quite confident sitting in that class because I had already been exposed to the majority of the texts thanks to Dr. Brucker’s class. As this next week approaches, I am beyond excited to experience my other classes and make the most of my time here; however long that may be.
Until next blog post,
