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…

A winter recap!

So, it’s been a little while. As I anticipated, finding time to blog has become increasingly harder. I’ve finally decided that an update is past due though, since it’s been almost two months since I last found the time to write. Obviously quite a lot happened during these last two months, so bear with me as I try my best to show what life has looked like for me here this winter…

Christian in Czechia

My life feels “complete” here. I speak the language, I have friends, and I have a good host family. My point in all of this is that sometimes a certain aspect of exchange isn’t the best, but that’s okay! Rotary has had thousands of exchange students over the years, and has really structured this program in such a way to where, as long as you’re persistent and clever, you can always have things resolved…

From Poprad to Prague ~ Two Worlds

Now that I’m past the halfway point of my exchange, it’s sort of crazy to look back on my past posts and see everything that has happened and all the things I’ve been fortunate enough to do. Even though it’s been only five months, it feels as though I’ve been able to live a lifetime through the opportunities I’ve had….

Winter Orientation

Thanksgiving was my first major holiday away from home and I wanted to do something for it. I also saw it as an opportunity to give my host family a new experience. The best way I could do this was to make a Thanksgiving dinner. When I proposed the idea to my host parents they said that it was a great idea. The whole experience was amazing and crazy. We did something that very few people if any have ever done for Thanksgiving…

Previously On… Emelia’s Life

Back in November, the Martin Rotary Club organized a Thanksgiving dinner for their families, friends, and nearby Rotarians and exchange students from other clubs. As per tradition, I was made the “face” of this event as the American exchange student…

Winter meeting in Poprad – Tatras

The next day, we took a train up to Štrbské Pleso and hiked for about two hours before we reached our first spot. On the way, we saw beautiful views of the mountains and the ski slopes off to the side. At our first pit stop, we took lots of pictures and enjoyed the view of the frozen lake….
