Brussels, Belgium is my exciting new city for the fall 2013 semester. My home within this beautiful European capital is the Financial Times Brussels bureau, where I have the great honor of interning. It’s sure to be a humbling, enlightening and ultimately life-changing experience.
As my European adventure kicks off, I’m reminded the true benefit of travel lies in sojourning, not wandering.
Over two weeks, my family and I saw parts of France, Belgium and Germany.
One of the first experiences I had in Brussels, this “museum” changed the way I view the EU and Europe in general.
Three weeks in, those three words sum up my study abroad experience so far.
Reflections on how ridiculously nervous I was to start my internship and how excited I am to continue it.
Notes on my mecca to what was once the land of the Baumanns.
My first experience at an EU summit was quite the learning opportunity.
Reflections from a weeks spent in Barcelona and Madrid.
Possibly my favorite place in Europe so far: the land of milk, honey and mountains.
Snapshots from a weekend across the channel.
As my semester abroad draws to a close, I escape the busyness of Brussels for a weekend with the monks of Westmalle.
A farewell ode/fanfare/swan song/etc. to four months in a wonderful place.
