Today marks exactly 6 months since I’ve been back from exchange. Out of everything I brought back with me, my little green notebook is definitely the one thing that holds the most memories.
In this notebook, I wrote down directions on how to get to every single hostel in every single city I travelled to. A South African girl working in Italy jotted down directions on how to get to the best gelato place in Rome. A German guy on the train wrote down the names of some German bands he thought I might like. My Czech friend listed a full page-worth of sights to see and food to eat in Prague. Christine and I spent sunny days and windy days working on childish sketches on sights we saw. And on the very back pages, I kept a running list of my food expenses for the entire 5 months so that every croissant, box of cereal, and carton of milk was accounted for.
I miss this, a lot!
