Today we got up bright and early yet again and ventured 3 hours away to Krumlov, a quaint little village in the Czech countryside. The narrow streets and little, tightly packed buildings created an atmosphere similar to a medieval town. We toured the castle that the city is built around and saw how nice it would be to live as royalty. My favorite part was how the outside walls were painted to look 3 dimensional. After the castle tour, we were free to enjoy the city for ourselves. I wish we had more time to enjoy all that it had to offer but we tried to make the most of it. The shops were mostly tourist traps but they had some interesting things, including jewelry made from meteors. A few of us had encounters with some very outgoing men as well (shout out to Bailey). After another 3 hour bus ride back to Prague, we went to an Italian restaurant for dinner and discussed our favorite things and experiences from the trip. It is hard to believe this adventure is almost over but I think most everyone misses home and is ready to return to the land of free refills and condiments. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to come to this part of the world. Not only is it a great place with tons of history, but I do not think I would have ever come without the honors college at TCU organizing it. It is not the usual tourist destination, but I’m very happy I decided to come. From auschwitz to Margaret island to a less than luxurious ride on a sleeper train, this experience has been one i will never forget. I would like to thank the whole group, especially Dr. Jones, for making this a great experience. I wish everyone safe travels as we head our separate ways soon and I will see all of you in about a month.
PS- sorry I’m a little late…I kind of forgot it was my turn to blog. And I do not have a camera cord so I can’t upload pictures. Please forgive me
