School ended and summer began… June 2017 was a busy month for teaching AND for traveling! My biggest highlight was visiting a new country… Poland!
While I desperately wanted to travel this long weekend in Hungary, I just didn’t seem to have the financial resources. Thanks to VIPKID I don’t think I will have this problem again for quite some time! Instead of traveling, I spent this weekend working very hard for VIPKID!
Another birthday… another celebration in Budapest! This weekend was full of festivities with friends in one of my favorite capital cities.
Prague, Czech Republic
After nearly a year of living in Hungary, I finally had my first visitor! My best friend from college came to visit me in June and I could not have been more excited to have her here and show her my new home. We had about 24 hours in Budapest before taking the overnight train to Prague. It was amazing being back in Prague, even though my last trip was only 8 months ago! I loved being able to explore this city once again, this time with a great friend!
After Budapest and Prague my friend and I made our way to Poland! I had been wanting to see Poland ever since I arrived in Hungary, I had even considered Poland to teach English abroad. With an overwhelming flow of recommendations for Krakow, we made our way to this beautiful city in southern Poland.
June was an amazing month. I got to do so much teaching not only at my school but also online with VIPKID and during the last week of June I got to teach at an English and Drama camp in Budapest. June also presented a lot of fun opportunities to travel. Traveling with my friend from college around some of the most beautiful places in worth it was a dream. July has been a pretty incredible month so far (very Mediterranean-themed..!) and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the month brings!
