In November 2018, I took a one week fall break trip with EESA to Lviv, Ukraine, Kraków, Poland, and Prague, Czech Republic. A few months earlier, I was just searching on the internet and came across their website and emailed in curiosity about the trip, not actually thinking it would be a possibility for me. I was assigned an academic advisor who explained everything to me and was willing to help me with everything, including finding plane tickets to my destination and being willing to adjust the schedule to my preferences. When I arrived, I was greeted by my guide for the trip at the airport, who turned into one of my great friends. Then later, I met the other person in our group who also was a fantastic companion. For the next several days, we traveled from country to country exploring, eating food, and having a great time. With several tours and places to visit, I learned a plethora about all of these countries and their cultures. I cannot express enough how much I enjoyed this short trip. In my experience, it was definitely worth the effort and will continue to fuel my passion to travel.
