Nick, outbound to Czech Republic
Czech Republic, the strangest place I've ever been and the most beautiful place I've ever been
Well I've officially been here one month. This whole thing is nuts. I was the guy sitting in his room, on his laptop, thinking with priority number one being "what do people think of me". This trip has already taught me how foolish and lazy I've been all these years.
When I stepped into the Frankfurt airport I immediately noticed cultural differences right off the bat. In my head I kept repeating "well there's a culture shock, and there, and there, etc" I felt so out of place there and it was uncomfortable to be sure. I felt like a little fish in a big pond, but it was nothing compared to the grain of sand I was to Opava's galaxy.
I always feel like a little baby, I can't do anything without the help of my family like order food at a restaurant or even worse...talk to girls. But I can say that regardless I am having the time of my life here. The food is good, my family is amazing, and my Czech has come a long way since when I first started. I've lost a lot of weight and I'm beginning a swimming course with an instructor so maybe I'll get good. But who knows, I'm just excited for the future and all the awesome stuff it's going to bring.
