Easter, hikes and last days with second host family

I’m so happy I was able to celebrate Easter and go on some really nice hikes with this host family. I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to stay with them and go on the amazing trips they took me on and things I learned with them…

Chicken and Waffles

We then tried the chicken and waffles. I first showed them how to prepare the chicken and waffles, and then invited them to try. Not everyone who was there tried the chicken and waffles, but that’s understandable. I was very surprised that a few of them did try, and I was even more surprised that they said that it was “weird but good.”..

My Final Blog Post

So, I guess we’ve reached the end. Thank you all for following my adventures in Czechia this year! I’m so disappointed that things had to end this way, but that doesn’t take anything away from the amazing seven months I had. I wouldn’t trade those memories for anything in the world! …

A Weekend to Remember

Some months ago, in early November, my host family took me on a trip to Prague and Cheb. They had been planning this weekend-trip since summer and I was so excited when the day finally came for us to embark on our journey. I’d never really been to Prague, only drove through it when I first arrived to the Czech Republic, but even though I’d only seen it through a car window, I was enchanted with the city…

Marley in Slovakia – completely new situation

Here’s a little update from my now 3rd week in quarantine/self-isolation. I am doing a lot better mentally; I’ve learned to except the situation I’m in and know there isn’t much I can do about it. I have noticed myself losing motivation to do work, but I’m trying and know it’s better to keep busy. The weather has been crazy, some days it’s 17C outside and I can sit out in the sun and others it’s been -2C, back to being stuck inside. I’m in a much better mood the more time I spend outside…

My Life as a Rotary Youth Exchange Student

I have spent the last 7 months in the Czech Republic as a Rotary Youth Exchange Student. This video is a glimpse into my experiences so far. Thanks to everyone who has made this possible…

SKI WEEK 2020

It’s hard to believe that we are already about 7 months into our exchange year. But with the months progressing comes more rotary trips. And that includes Ski Week! Inbounds from across the district traveled to Ždiar, High Tatras in Slovakia for a week of skiing and fun. Overall, I have to say, this was definitely the best Rotary event I have experienced so far. I had an amazing time spending time and catching up with my friends and skiing with them. Even though it was cut a bit short, it was an unforgettable experience…

Marley in Slovakia

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve written one of these, life has been crazy, it always is. It’s still hard for me to believe I’ve already been here for over 5 months…my exchange is already halfway over 🙁 It feels like I haven’t been home in Florida for such a long time, but at the same time time’s flying as I try and take everything in over here. I’ll try and catch you up on everything that has been going on for the past couple months. Sit down, maybe make some tea if you actually want to read this-I’m sorry it’s so long…

My February Adventures

My host family and I went skiing for four days in Austria. It was around 40-50 degrees every day so I didn’t even wear a coat. This was the perfect skiing weather for me. I had such a great time…

School life and the little things

I started school the day after my arrival, even though I could’ve had the whole first week off. I did this so I could through myself straight into the Slovak life, meet new people, not be stuck at home, also so that I could keep the agreement with Lochlan (we both agreed we would start school as soon as we could) and because why not…
