Final Overview

July 1st, 2012

Two things have really stuck in my mind about the trip. First, I am going back to Europe. Two, I can find things to do that are just as much fun as I found there in my own home country.

When we had free time during our stay, a few of us had looked up things to do through the Internet and brochures at the hotel. It helped us find things that we were interested in and made the trip a lot more enjoyable. Certain things we saw like plays, concerts, and local events could be found just as easily around my own home. And, although I am deeply going to miss all of the food I try, trying it just gave me an excuse to learn how to cook something new; something I couldn’t find in a southern cook book. Studying different styles and textures of clothes just made me realize I could probably find those at home, if I looked very hard in the right places. I could even take a fun daytime (not overnight) train to somewhere else with friends on vacation just as easily as I did in Europe. With some determination, I can do almost all of the same things I did there. That might tide me over until I can take another visit “across the pond”.

One thing I must say I liked the most from the trip was not bringing my phone. It was a complete get away from the rest of my world. One of the boys on the trip pointed out how everyone who brought their phone, including him, were glued to it the second they got internet access. Not bringing mine let me enjoy certain aspects of the trip more than if I were staring up, with my phone to the sky, hoping for service.

I knew I would enjoy the art work on the trip, but I did not expect to fall in love with it like I did. I realized I need to learn how to paint or make a good living to afford the beautiful paintings I plan to have in my house one of these days.

I only really knew a few people on the trip as we were boarding the plane to Rome. When I came back to Little Rock three weeks later, I made such amazingly good friends! I don’t think any amount of time around Ouachita could compare to the bonding I had with those nearly-strangers that went to class with me for three hours a week. I feel as though we can all agree on that. I wish so badly to relive those few weeks, but since I can’t, I am extremely satisfied with the friendships I made, the things I learned, and the experiences I could never recreate on that trip. Even though it won’t be the same, I am definitely going back.

That was by far the trip of a lifetime!

    Everything posted made a great deal of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier title?
    I ain’t saying your information isn’t good., however suppose you added a post title to possibly
    get folk’s attention? I mean Final Overview at Europe is a
    little plain. You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how
    they create article headlines to get people interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.

    I think that what you published made a lot of sense. But,
    what about this? what if you added a little information? I mean,
    I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a headline that
    grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Final Overview at Europe is
    kinda vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and
    note how they create news titles to get people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or
    two to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
