Today we took our 20hr journey back to the future as we traveled through Amsterdam back to the states. Our tour guide,Petr, met us in the hotel lobby this morning at 3:00am. From there, a bus took us to the Prague airport to catch our 6:25 am flight to Amsterdam. We said our last goodbyes to Petr and prepared for the flight.
Going through customs was much easier in Amsterdam than I can say for the US. In Amsterdam, the security check workers put the groups through in sets of four. The plane ride was pretty bumpy and the temperature got really hot towards the end. Going through customs in the Minnesota was much easier than I had originally expected. We did encounter a mix up at customs, but we pushed through in time to have a quick snack at the airport before the flight.
I think it's safe to say we all had a great time! From the bonds of friendship to personal growth, we all gained at least a piece of the study abroad experience. A pretty amazing thing for just a two week program.
