Julie's Adventures Abroad

Welcome to my travel blog!

Currently in: Hampton, New Hampshire USA

Studied abroad in Stockholm, Sweden for the Spring 2020 semester.
  • Calm Before the Storm (of Classes)
    Even though I’m not studying ‘abroad’ anymore, it doesn’t mean that I’m no longer studying. It also means you aren’t done reading about my life just yet. Muahahahaha Honestly, I have no idea where time has gone since I’ve been home. I know I’m not the only one out there feeling this way, but I’veContinue reading “Calm Before the Storm (of Classes)”
  • Heartbroken
    With a heavy heart, I am writing this post as I am on my flight back home to the US. From the last time I posted until now, we all know that everything in the world has dramatically changed regarding COVID-19. I am truly and utterly sad that I am being forced to go homeContinue reading “Heartbroken”

  • Falling in Love
    The first week here has been a lot: a lot of new faces, a lot of new places, but most importantly, a lot of love for this country. The first week was an adjustment, where I was still getting my bearings with trying to understand public transit that is in a different language. It wasn’tContinue reading “Falling in Love”
  • First 36 Hours
    I arrived in Stockholm just over 36 hours ago, and my experience so far has been nothing but wonderful. When I arrived here after my overnight flight from the States, the sun was starting to rise and the colors were so rich in pinks and purples that I was standing there in awe because IContinue reading “First 36 Hours”
