Study Abroad Switzerland: A Charming Adventure

Classes have been done for about a week, and I’m spending my sweet time traveling through a few more countries before we head back for the U.S. Our first stop was to Lucerne, Switzerland! We were welcomed by a very kind Airbnb host, Hena, who resided in a quaint suburban neighborhood surrounded by fall-colored trees and mountains! We had read on the Airbnb website that he provided breakfast, and it was outstanding—freshly baked bread from a local bakery, locally jarred jams, and “cheese from the mountain.” It was one of the cutest ways we could have been greeted on our journey. The … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Poland: Lessons in Travel

For the first part of free travel, a group of us went to Krakow, Poland. Most people flew, but my friend and I decided to take a train to save some money. We got our reservations in Liege and headed to Krakow at 5:31am. Everything was going great until our first train was delayed, causing us to miss our second train. This was very problematic because the next train we could take was a whole half hour later, and we would be unable to make connections to make our reserved trains. This really sucked, especially at 6:30 in the morning! We decided to just keep going along the journey in hopes … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Norway: A Winter Wonderland

We spent most of last week exploring one of my favorite countries, Norway! I had been wanting to go to Scandinavia ever since I learned I would be studying abroad, so I'm glad my friends wanted to go as well. We decided on Norway because one of my friends is Norwegian and wanted to visit some of the places his family lived in. We found a nice little cabin on airbnb right outside of Oslo, and booked it for 5 nights. We were greeted with a thick blanket of snow and the bitter cold, but we couldn't be happier. I'm from an area that does get snow, but two of the friends I was with are from … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Germany: Exploring Aachen

This Saturday, our group decided to make a group trip to Aachen, Germany, on the Western-most border of the country. When we initially arrived, we first wandered a bit aimlessly, happening upon a small chocolatier called Printenbäckerei Klein, making a variety of gourmet chocolates covering a gingerbread-like cookie. Fun fact: Aachen is the birthplace of this traditional German Christmas dessert, although we did not know that at the time we purchased several gift bags of printen! Not knowing where to go from here, we returned to the train station to reorient ourselves. A sympathetic … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Spain: Making Memories

Hey there! This long four-day weekend, my friends and I decided to go to Spain! With all the sites, food, and culture, it was one of the most amazing trips my friends and I have been on! Before I get into the good things, though, I need to tell future travelers about one thing to avoid if they decide to fly to Spain during their study abroad experiences. My friends and I decided that we wanted to visit Valencia first and then Madrid. We made the mistake of booking a round-trip flight from Brussels to Madrid, rather than separate one-way flights from Brussels to Valencia and then Madrid … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Europe: Exploring the Netherlands

This week, my friends and I decided to stay in the Netherlands because we figured it would be a huge shame if we studied here for 3 months and never explored the country. Thanks to a lovely Dutch Art History field trip, we began out travels in The Hague. Dutch Art History is one of the classes offered through Maastricht University rather than Baylor, and it is so fun! First, we visited a panorama at the Mesdag museum. This was by far my favorite piece of artwork I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been to too many art museums to count. The panorama is a 360 degree view of The Hague, … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Italy: Ciao Cinque Terre

Ciao! We are currently on fall break here in Baylor’s premed Maastricht study abroad program! For our first couple days we went to Rome, where we travelled to see the Colosseum, Roman Forums, Trevi Fountain, the Vatican, and several other popular sites! We had a bus tour take our group of about 40 people to all of these big sites, and I highly recommend doing the same so that you have the most in-depth experience while in Rome! For me, having had five years’ worth of Latin classes, it was beyond amazing to me to see all the history and architecture of the obelisks, temples, city walls, ruins, … [Read more...]

Study Abroad France: How to Do Paris in 1 Weekend

This weekend, my entire study abroad class went to Paris to visit the Pasteur Institute and most people ended up staying for the weekend. It was a lovely weekend straight out of a movie, but we explored so much in so little time. We hopped on a train early Friday morning and left Paris on Sunday afternoon. Luckily, we managed to snag reservations for one of the fancy fast trains, so our travel time was shortened significantly. We arrived just in time for lunch of Friday, so we found our way to a interesting church in Madeleine, which we learned served a three-course meal in a crypt for … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Maastricht: Traveling Close to Home

This week has been super busy with tests back in Maastricht for our Pathophysiology and Global Health classes, so a bunch of friends and I decided to keep our travels close to home! Some of us stayed in the city, while others of us made day trips to Germany or Belgium! This past weekend, most of my travel group friends (pictured above in one of our dorm rooms, holding up our pinkies to represent our favorite Maastricht ice cream parlor, Pinky) decided to spend time studying for our upcoming tests in Maastricht. To start, we first spent our weekend getting some shopping done to prepare … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Europe: Pre-Med Students in Paris

Hello! My name is Jasmine Tuazon, and I am a 4th-year premed biochemistry Baylor University student currently spending a semester in Europe thanks to Millennium Tours, a travel company based in Austin, Texas for group study abroad trips! This weekend from Sept. 9-11, all 38 of us premed students went to Paris! Collectively, we all went to The Pasteur Institute to view all Louis Pasteur’s home and lab where he developed fermentation and discovered racemization and vaccination. Following that, we split up and decided to explore the city either by foot or via bike tour (The picture is … [Read more...]
