42 Days Until Departure!

Hello!  I am Melissa, a history major and typically a student in the Evening Campus.  In relation to the Central Europe tour, I am taking the History of the Holocaust class with Dr. Compton, who has been my catalyst and source of encouragement for embarking on this journey.  Four weeks into the class, I am learning so much.  While many of the things we learn reflect one of the darkest periods in human history, the knowledge we gain is of vital importance, lest we forget what happens when mankind becomes complacent.

At posting, it is 42 days until departure.  I just realized that our flights have been booked, which is exciting!  This will be my first trip outside of the continental United States, and while I am nervous, I can't wait to see another part of the world.  I am still in shock that I am about to experience something this amazing.  I don't want to waste a minute of this wonderful opportunity!
Of all the things we will see, I most look forward to cathedrals done in the elaborate neogothic style, and real, legitimate castles.  I don't know what to expect, other than wonderment!
I am so, so grateful for a chance to venture out beyond my own little corner of the world.  I can't wait to post pictures and tell stories of all the incredible things we'll see.  I am ready for my greatest adventure!
