“With every roadblock, a detour is built. With every ending, a new beginning is defined. Embracing a challenge makes life interesting, but overcoming it makes life meaningful.”
– Matthew E. Fryer

I found this quote to be so true during this experience, and I choose to have a really great time exploring the stunning, historical city of Warsaw this past week. I had planned to stay only the weekend in Krakow, but there were bigger plans in store for me, as my passport was stolen during my time in the beautiful city. So instead of travelling home to Breda, I ventured to the capital city of Warsaw before the Christmas holiday to contact the Canadian Embassy. Everything worked out in the end, and I was able to order a new passport. After waiting a few days for the document to be made, I made it back to Breda on Christmas Eve. Stalin) by day and night. One evening I also went to the top of this building to see a beautiful panoramic view of the city at sunset. This is the tallest building in all of Poland, and it offered beautiful views. I was so glad to make it home to the Netherlands, but this experience was definitely a classic example that when life hands you lemons… you should grab some Tequila and salt!

A Celebratory Weekend Trip

Krakow, Poland  (December 2015)

The end of the school term at NHTV was Friday, December 18th, 2015. I did not have to write any exams, but I did have to hand in a few papers and some large group projects. To celebrate this amazing feat and of course, because we wanted to explore somewhere new, my friend Laura and I went to Krakow for the weekend. I’d say that Krakow is a really fun city that is full of life, wonderful people, strong religious beliefs, and a dark, yet truthful past.
