If you want more information on best things to do in these places or any other travel tips let me know. When you are trying to make the most of a trip, some of which are only in a matter of a few days, it is key to know the best places to go.

Any who… I just want to touch on the amount of tears that have been shed since I arrived home roughly 24 hours ago.

To start, I balled when I saw my family after sprinting through the entire airport. And then after pulling up I got to see my puppy dog (he is not actually a puppy) and I still do not think he is over me being back, he follows me everywhere! The first thing I did when I arrived home was a load of laundry I could not wait for all of my clothes to smell like home! My own bed was even better then I had remembered and not having to share my room with someone might have been the cherry on top! One thing I learned on this abroad experience is that I am not by any means a city girl… so sleeping and not being able to hear people screaming outside, street cleaners, garbage trucks, etc. is pretty nice to say the least.

This morning… let’s take a moment to applaud not having to shower in a two by two shower anymore! So much room for activities! Now the amount of options that opened in my wardrobe… I can not even decide what to wear anymore because it is just too overwhelming.

A few other things that made me tear up was the microwave, dishwasher, driving, popcorn, and obviously Chick-fil-A.

I do not want you to think that this was not the best experience of my life. However, when you run out of money with a month left coming home is pretty damn great. I would recommend to everyone to travel to the places they want to the most because you only live once and it is an experience that is so incredibly worth it and no one can take that from you. Just make sure you make the most of it!
