Day 11: Goodbye, Europe. You Will Be Missed...

It's incredibly hard to believe that this trip is ending. It's even harder to believe that I didn't know any of these wonderful people with whom I have been with for 24 hours a day. Now, I'm leaving with the best of memories and adventures of spectacular countries and cities in Europe. It was a shock for us all as today was our last day in Prague. Although I am excited to come home, it's still bittersweet to leave such an amazing experience.

The breakfast at Hotel Ibis was excellent! We had a nice selection of warm and cold foods. The hotel itself also had free internet and was close to the supermarket and metro. Liz Issac, Ericka Starr, and I definitely had to ride the paddleboats under the Charles Bridge today.

Another life goal to complete: ride a jazz boat in Prague!

We spent the day doing what we're best at: shopping! I got a great belt for about 5 US dollars and of course, another shot glass.

Tip #9: Use your card to withdraw at the ATMs. In the event that your card gets rejected, move on to the next! If you don't, your card can and will be eaten by the machine!

We had our last dinner at Michaels (sad!) where I definitely got pulled up onstage to dance with the old male performer. Good times!

We had a simple night at a bar. As there were 2 shuttles leaving for the airport the next morning, half the group had to say goodbye to the other. It was surely sad, but we'll always be connected to each other through this fabulous experience!

THANKS FOR A GREAT TIME, EUROPE! Until I return you will be missed!
