Last Travel Weekend to Croatia

2 Comments

Our last travel weekend, myself and 7 other students made our way to Croatia. We’d wanted to visit Plitvice National Park, the place with the beautiful lakes, all semester and finally made the trip down. As we took a bus to Zagreb, I was so glad that this was going to be our last weekend trip. The views out the bus window were beautiful. It had just started to get warm a few weeks prior...

Since I’ve been traveling, I’ve learned that not every single trip I will go on will run smoothly. No matter how much planning my friends and I do, there is bound to be something that goes wrong, or a plan that gets altered.  Just the other day, a train trip we thought would take a mere five hours ended up being closer to nine.  We discovered the schedules had been updated last minute, and fortunately...

A Nordic Weekend Abroad

Be the first to Comment

Norway was one of my more recent destinations of my weekend travels and it was beautiful. Snow covered landscapes and picturesque views filled my time there. Norway was one place that we could not take a train to, so we flew. Technically, a train is possible; it just would have taken way too long for the short amount of time we had to go. We got in to Oslo late at night, so we didn’t...

Vienna Church

Lipscomb students, meet Vienna!

Be the first to Comment

We made it to Vienna, and wow, what a beautiful city! We’ve been walking around the city for the past few days and though we’ve seen a lot, there is definitely a lot more to explore. We have become familiar with the church near our house, and it’s a helpful landmark that has helped us navigate the neighborhood in the first few days. If we can find the church, we can find our way home....
