I could think of no better time for my second blog post than after my spring break! At University College Dublin, we don’t technically have a spring break, rather, we have a two-week-long fieldwork period. However, if you don’t have any fieldwork to complete, like me and my friends, it’s pretty much a normal school break. For the first week, we decided to fly into Berlin, Germany and learn about all the World War Two history and check out the nightlife. One of the days, we toured a concentration camp on the outskirts of the city. From there, we took a 5-hour train to Prague, Czech Republic, as it was one of our most highly anticipated travel destinations. The architecture in Prague was extremely cool and unlike anything I have ever seen before. I have attached a picture below, also featuring Prague’s famous astronomical clock. Then, we flew back to Dublin for St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, which was a lot of fun. After getting sick and recovering, the second week of our spring break started as we flew out to Vienna, Austria, which was definitely the prettiest and calmest city I have been to in Europe. From there we took a day trip to Bratislava, Slovakia, and eventually made our way to Budapest, Hungary. Budapest was probably the most interesting place I have been so far, as it has really cool architecture and history mixed with fun things to do, like visit one of the many thermal bath facilities. Overall, my spring break was extremely busy and tiring, but worth it at the same time!
