Today is the day we present our projects to the citizens on Paros. It is difficult to believe that we started these projects 3 weeks ago. Albert and Thomas told us that this trip would feel like we have been here for a very long time as well as if we hardly spent any time here at all. I did not believe them at first, but now I understand what they meant.
It seems like yesterday we were at the edge of a cliff watching a bird release.
Like I was walking around the 100 Door Church, taking reference photos to complete my 3D recreation of the building.
Like I had just met Annelize, the ex-pat that I interviewed with Jen and Thomas.
So much has happened each day that we have been here, yet I feel that we haven’t done enough. I want more time to explore the island, do more activities, and make more memories with all the great people on this trip. I’m not ready for this to end, but alas, all great things must come to an end.
All my experiences and lessons that I learned will stay with me as I continue my degree and grow as a person. I never thought I would’ve had the chance to be a part of a study abroad experience, and I’m grateful to have gotten this opportunity.
I will cherish these memories forever.
