Study Abroad Prague: A Humbling Awakening

We found ourselves in Prague last weekend! The tour guide that Millennium Tours arranged for us could not have been better. After a few of us expressed interest in visiting Terezin, a concentration camp during WWII, he offered to take four hours of his day to take us after the group tour concluded on Saturday. Thousands of tombstones solemnly greeted us as we arrived at Terezin. Etched into the stones were the names of people who breathed their last breaths on the same grounds we now stood. Several of the stones remained nameless and were instead marked with a number, resting above … [Read more...]

Study Abroad: The Magic of Hyde Park

Friends traveling abroad always ask me what my favorite thing about London is.  I could easily say the architecture, or possibly free entry to the most popular museums, but the one thing that always comes to mind is Hyde Park.  Just one block down from my study abroad dorm, Hyde Park spans across 350 acres and houses many famous statues, fountains, and playgrounds.  In a prime location of London, Hyde Park is bordered by Green Park and Kensington Gardens, the latter just on the other side of Serpentine Bridge.  Fun fact: the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a house on the edge of Kensington … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: Paris – City of Lights

By Myriam Villareal The City of Light. Paris was filled with all the romance, beauty, and sophistication that I imagined it to be. I visited Paris briefly when I was a kid, but this was different. I was going to experience and embrace everything that Paris had to offer with liberty and free range to explore. Millennium Tours arranged our group travel weekend trip for a large group of us to Paris. Our hotel was fabulous, the Eurostar was quick, and we had museum passes that allowed us into almost every museum in the city. For the next two days, Paris was ours. Upon our arrival, we … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: Scotland & The Lake District

By Myriam Villareal Bagpipes, kilts, haggis. Scotland was a place so different from anywhere I had been in the United Kingdom, that I could hardly believe that I was still on the same continent. I had yet to see so much greenery and lush landscape, so I was pleasantly surprised at the sight that met my eyes as we disembarked our train. Edinburgh was different than I had imagined it to be. The city was smaller, yet much prettier than I had anticipated. The Edinburgh Castle seemed so close from every angle of the city, even though it sat atop a hill and required a steep walk up the … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: Group Travel to Barcelona

By Maggie King Traveling to Barcelona on Thursday involved a tube, train, and airplane ride- So pretty much an entire day of travel before we reached Spain. This time we weren’t informed of fun facts about the city we would spend the next couple of days in. We soon figured out this was because most people in Barcelona don’t speak English. My foreign language (sign language-thank you speech path) was no help over here, so I let the others talk to the cab driver while I chilled in the back. “La playa” Got us a taxi to Port Olimpic where a small group of us all shared tapas on the … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: The Month of a Lifetime

By Chelsea Cates For Audrey Noelle As I sit here with only three days left in London, I look back to all of the amazing things I have experienced during this group trip and smile. I have seen more famous sites than most people see in a lifetime, I’ve made so many new friends, and I’ve learned a lot about myself and about life. I always knew I would love Europe, but had no idea what was actually in store for me the day I signed up for BGB 2013. I will never forget all of the memories I have made, or the people I have met. The unique aspect of Baylor in Great Britain is that we have … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: Group Travel to France

By Maggie King France for the weekend NBD… BGB/Millennium Tours really is like “Traveling for Dummies.” The day before our train to Paris we were given a two-day museum pass, transport card, and free boat tour ticket. Pretty much we were set to do anything we wanted for the weekend, and of course I had a itinerary ready for our group travel. Terri prepared it for me about a month ago when she saw all the free time we were allotted in Paris. We only had a group admission pass to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower planned; the rest was up to us. Guided Bus tour to hotel fun … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: From Paris with Love

By Chelsea Cates This past weekend, I traveled with a group to the one and only Paris, France. The trip was organized by Millennium Tours, so we were fortunate to have stress-free arrival and departure experiences in France. Our hotel was very nice and right by the Eiffel Tower. The first night, the whole group went up to the second level of the tower and took tons and tons of pictures, of course. The view from way up there was incredible; we could see the entire city! You can scroll through Google images of the view all day long, but you will never understand the beauty of it until you see … [Read more...]

Baylor in Great Britain: The Eternal City – Group Travel to Rome

By Myriam Villarreal La Città Eterna, The Eternal City, Rome. It was all I could hope for and more. The vibrant and lush colors that surrounded me as we drove into Rome mesmerized me. I couldn’t believe that I was setting foot in the city that began the civilization of the western world that we live in today. So much history, so much beauty, and so much life in one city, I could barely contain my excitement! I had been to Rome many years ago as a child, but my memories had faded and I wanted to experience new adventures in Rome as an adult. As we walked around Rome on our first night, we … [Read more...]
