Slovakia Day 55+56 – Possible Trip?

It is extremely ironic that I was just going on about how I would stay consistent and true to my posting nature, and ensure that I post daily, while I don’t have a post yesterday. My reason for this, is that fact that I simply had nothing…

Slovakia Day 55 – Baseball Bat

I have forgotten how much I love the weekends. It has been a few weeks now since I have had the opportunity to sleep in and relax all day. I know I probably should have done something productive, I decided that I was going to grant…

Slovakia Day 55 – Online Ordering a Baseball Bat

Today I was able to play baseball for the first time in months. The sound of a ball cracking on a wooden bat is something that I have been longing. The crisp noise of a ball landing on a leather glove is something that has been…

Slovak National Uprising – Information Post 3

Slovakia Day 51 – Tea

Even though today was another start to a school week, there was still some fantastic cultural exchange that went on. From a Taiwanese girl critiquing Slovak Bubble tea, to complaints on KFC, we learned a lot from each other today. After my Slovak lessons today, Ashley…

Slovakia Day 46 – Video Project & Small Items

On the plus side, I was able to watch all of Django Unchained last night. It came at the cost of being extremely tired all night but who is counting? I wish I could say that this post today would be long and lengthy, but today…
